fall is for cider and donuts

You haven’t lived until you’ve had cider and donuts from the Franklin Cider Mill in suburban Detroit on a crisp Fall day. It’s the stuff traditions are made of — bees buzzing all around, people milling about, apples being pressed into fresh cider, hot cinnamon donuts in brown paper bags, Michigan apples for sale by the bushel, bright red candied apples tempting you at every turn. Glorious! Glorious! Glorious!

The mill building was built in 1837, the same year Michigan became a state. Did you know that Michigan is the #3 apple producing state in the union?

The Franklin Cider Mill, open daily between Labor Day & Thanksgiving.                         14 Mile and Franklin Road, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
