Diehl’s Cider Mill Holly

Diehl’s Cider Mill Holly MI review, pics, hours, and Ciderfest 2023 info… Diehl’s Orchard and Cider Mill is located in Holly, Michigan and has been serving cider (and much more) since 1954.


Diehl’s Orchard and Cider Mill is open daily mid-August through Halloween from 9a-6p. Diehl’s Cider Mill serves apple cider, homemade donuts, apple butter, honey, jams, jellies, pies, candy, apple cider vinegar, Michigan grown popcorn and many other fall favorites.

A trip to Diehl’s feels more like a trip “up North” than it does to a typical Metro Detroit cider mill. In many ways, it feels like Diehl’s would fit perfectly in Indian River or Petoskey, Michigan as opposed to Oakland County. One reason may be due to the fact that Diehl’s really is “off the beaten path” when it comes to location.

Diehl’s truly is unlike many of the other cider mills in Metro Detroit and I don’t mean that statement negatively. The cider mill doesn’t really dress itself up to be a big-time fall tourist destination like other local cider mills even though the mill has some very nice attributes and there some fun things to do throughout the fall season.

You don’t want to miss Diehl’s annual Cider Fest which takes place every September. This year’s Cider Fest takes place September 23 & 24 from 9a-6p. Cider Fest fun and games include – Free parking, corn maze, hayrides to the pumpkin patch, pony rides, haypile, hay maze, bird coop, craft demos, playground, family fun, kiddie maze, Hog Wild BBQ, craft show, and more.

While Diehl’s may not be the most visually captivating cider going, they do have EXCELLENT cider and donuts. I’ve been to Diehl’s a few times over the years and the cider is always the perfect blast of sweet and tart! The donuts are delicious as well. Not Erwin’s Orchards Cider Mill quality but really close! Another neat facet I have yet to see at other local cider mills is the refrigerated cooler that holds bins and bins of different kinds of apples. Take your pick of Red Delicious, Empire, Cortland, Honeycrisp, Fuji, and more types of apples and create your pecks to take home.
