Yates Cider Mill

I went to Yates Cider Mill on Sunday — a perfect day for cider and donuts and about a million people agreed with me. The line was incredibly long.

In 1863, the Yates Grist Mill opened beside the Clinton-Kalamazoo canal in Rochester, MI. Still today, cider production is water-powered and the operators have continued to use the original turbine wheel and machinery.
Cider is made daily, along with apple turnovers, donuts, caramel apples, apple pies, roasted almonds, cotton candy, apple butter, jellies and jams. There is also a fudge and candy shop, hot dog stand, pony rides and a petting zoo. You can also walk the trails along the Clinton River — nice scenery, but I’ll have to go back when the leaves start changing.

Yated Cider Mill is located at Dequindre and Avon Road in Rochester Hills, MI. It is open 9am-7pm seven days a week during September and October and 9am-5pm in November.

    I’m sorry I didn’t have any extras for you guys, I was basically eating them off the production line. People were getting upset…

    Great place to go after mountain biking at Bloomer or Stoney Creek.
