Westview Orchards Cider Mill Pics
Located in the heart of the Macomb County cider mill belt, Westview Cider Mill is located on the sprawling, rolling acres of Westview Orchards. While facets of the farm are open nearly year-round, the real fun is in the fall!
Westview Orchards Cider Mill has great attractions for kids during the fall weekends. On Saturdays and Sundays from Labor Day weekend through Halloween from 10a-5p, kids are welcome to explore acres and acres of cider mill fun. The experience is similar to Blake’s Barnyard Funland (Armada), only with more of an authentic farm feel. As with Blake’s, try to avoid weekends if you don’t like HUGE crowds. The weekend crowds definitely diminish the fun factor as the lines for attractions are extensive.

Please check the Westview Cider Mill website or call their toll-free number for all of the various programs and pricing in regards to the weekend family fun. You know you’re in for a “Full Day of Country Fun” when they offer season passes like an amusement park! Westview also offers night-time corn maze on Fridays and Saturdays from 7p-10p the last weekend in September through Halloween.
The cider mill itself is open from 10a-5p daily from Labor Day through Halloween but the Farm Market is open from July through X-Mas eve. Westview Cider Mill offers seasonal U-pick cherries (sweet and tart), Freestone peaches, apples and pumpkins. The Westview Cider Mill farm itself includes those but goes even further by offering sweet corn, plums, Bosc Pears, Bartlett Pears, squash and pumpkin pie in their Farm Market. The market also offers donuts, pies, jams, salsas, veggies, gift baskets and more. Westview Cider Mill Bakery is open on weekends only in the Fall and has, in addition to the Market, cream cheese logs, fruit breads and their signature Fruit Flip.
Since Westview Orchards Cider Mill is open nearly year-round, they are open for school tours and group tours from May through October. They also host family reunions, birthday parties, company parties and more.
Westview Cider Mill is clearly one of our favorite cider mills and ranked very highly in our Metro Detroit Best Cider Mill Best Of list. What sets Westview apart from most other Metro Detroit cider mills is its sheer size. It’s big without being too big and the down-home, country feel is very endearing. Don’t laugh, one of my favorite features that makes Westview Orchards unique are the modern restroom facilities. They’re truly underrated and way better than the port-o-john facilities at the other local cider mills.
