Oakland County Cider Mills – Bloomfield Hills Cider Mills
Franklin Cider Mill
7450 Franklin Rd, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan 48301, 248-626-2968, www.franklincidermill.com
Unlike the sprawling acres at most of the cider mills in Macomb County, the grounds around Franklin Cider Mill are cozy. Frankin Cider Mill is charming, it almost has a romantic setting. Located just a mile from the hustle bustle of Telegraph, the grounds of Franklin Cider Mill are beautiful and well-maintained. While most cider mill staffs are friendly, Franklin Cider Mill staff goes out of their way to assist and take “courteous” to a new level. Review – Pics.
Oakland County Cider Mills – Commerce Cider Mills
Long Family Orchard and Cider Mill
1540 E. Commerce Rd, Commerce MI 48382, 248-360-3774, www.longsorchard.com
Long Family Orchard offers rustic scenery and cider mill favorites. They have entertainment for kids (weekends only) with their Fall Time Fun Area playplace, hayrides to the pumpkin patch and 5-acre corn maze. Longs even hosts nighttime glowstick corn maze visits (October weekend nights) suitable for low-scare spooky fun for kids. Review – Pics.
Oakland County Cider Mills – Holly Cider Mills
Diehl’s Cider Mill
1479 Ranch Rd, Holly, MI 48442, 248-634-8981, diehlsorchard.com
A trip to Diehl’s feels more like a trip “up North” than it does to any of the typical Oakland County cider mills. One reason may be due to the fact that Diehl’s really is “off the beaten path” when it comes to location. Diehl’s 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. Review – Pics.
Oakland County Cider Mills – Northville Cider Mills
Parementer’s Cider Mill
714 Baseline, Northville, Michigan, 248-349-3181, www.northvillecider.com
A cider mill AND a winery? Count me in! Since 1873, Parementers Cider Mill has been dishing out fresh cider. The Northville Winery is located on-site and offers wine tasting during busier times of the fall season. The cider mill is just beautiful – inside and out. Sure, the rustic red barn charm is gorgeous on the outside but the inside is tastefully decorated and inviting. The inside of Parmenter’s has all the appeal of an old-country kitchen, yet it is somehow elegant and graceful at the same time. Review – Pics.
Three Cedars Farm
7897 Six Mile Road, Northville, MI 48167, 248-437-8200, www.threecedarsfarm.org
Three Cedars Cider Mill delivers “old-fashioned fun for all ages” on the beautiful, sprawling farm. There’s plenty of fun to be had for the very young and the very old. The entire farm is decked out for fall in festive (almost garish), country-time decor. Three Cedars is one of the largest Oakland County cider mills so there is plenty to see, do, and purchase! The General Store is the fall equivalent of Bronner’s Christmas Village in Frankenmuth. It’s impressive. Three Cedars Cider Mill offers a fun and educational Barn Yard Play Land for kids!

Oakland County Cider Mills – Ortonville Cider Mills
Ashton Orchards Cider Mill
3825 E. Seymour Lake Rd, Ortonville, Michigan 48462, 248-627-6671
Ashton Cider Mill pleasing location holds many clean picnic tables and sturdy playground equipment for kids to relax and enjoy their cider. Ashton Orchards may be short on widespread entertainment like Blake’s but there is a lot of charm to the place. I really admired the cleanliness and simplicity of the farm. A great roadside cider mill stop. Review – Pics.
Oakland County Cider Mills – Rochester Cider Mills
Goodison Cider Mill
4295 Orion Rd, Rochester, Michigan 48306, 248-652-8450
Goodison is tiny, don’t blink when you’re driving or you’ll miss it! Goodison Cider Mill doesn’t look like much from the outside but the aromas of the cider mill may draw you from anywhere within a quarter-mile radius. Because it’s so close to Orion Road with convenient parking, Goodison is an ideal place to pop in for cider. You’ll be back in the road with your cider and donuts in under a minute! Review.
Paint Creek Cider Mill
4480 Orion Rd, Rochester, Michigan 48306, 248 656-3400, www.paintcreekcidermill.net
Paint Creek Cider Mill Rochester is operated by the Parks and Recreation Commission for Oakland Township and the Paint Creek Trailways Commision. Paint Creek Cider Mill isn’t the most authentic of the Oakland County cider mills. The water wheel is just for show, much of the building is unoccupied or shared with the Parks and Rec department etc.. But, the great location and beauty of the building itself makes the trip worth it. It’s a nice, quick way to get your cider fix and perhaps enjoy a tasty lunch at the year-round cafe. Review – Pics.
Oakland County Cider Mills – Rochester Hills Cider Mills
Rochester Cider Mill
5125 N. Rochester Rd, Rochester Hills, Michigan 48306, 248-651-4224
Even though Rochester Cider Mill isn’t the biggest tourist attraction of the local cider mills, its rustic charm and variety of goods make it a nice local mill to visit frequently in the fall to stock up on many fall favorites. Rochester Cider Mill is rural, country charm. You feel like you’re almost transported to a 1920s general store. Rochester Cider Mill has made several improvements to the location recently. The grounds are a lot cleaner than they used to be and they’ve begun selling ice cream in the summer. I’m told even more changes may be coming. Review – Pics.
Yates Cider Mill
1990 E. Avon Road, Rochester Hills, Michigan 48307, 248-651-8300, www.yatescidermill.com
Nestled along the banks of the Clinton River and situated at the corner of Avon Rd and Dequindre Rd, Yates is one of the most popular cider mills in Metro Detroit. The crowds Yates draws on fall weekends are incredible and even the weekdays are busy with seemingly unending school field trips! Yates has even been featured on Food Network. Review – Pics.
Oakland County Cider Mills – South Lyon Cider Mills
Erwin Orchards Cider Mill
61475 Silver Lake Road, South Lyon, Michigan, 248-437-0150, erwinorchards.com
Big-time fall fun for kids on a huge farm! Youth attractions which include: a large hay maze, goat pen, pony rides (weekends), a huge trike trail, corn maze, bouncing inflatables (weekends) and the opportunity to view a working bee hive. The grounds are expansive so there is plenty of room to stretch out no matter how big the crowds are. Erwin’s is built for crowds and built for family entertainment. Haunted attractions on the weekends in the fall. Review – Pics.
