Great Cider Mills and Orchards Near HomeFirst™ Communities
With Autumn quickly approaching, those warm summer days drift away and those colorful leaves start falling down. With this change in season comes not only different weather, but also different options on how to spend your time — and we don’t just mean busting out those rakes to beautify your lawn!
There’s lots of great things to enjoy about Fall and HomeFirst™ communities not only have beautiful walking paths to enjoy the surrounding nature, but many homes are located near a variety of fall fun opportunities for your family to enjoy, including many of Michigan’s best orchards and cider mills.
Meadow Creek – Blake Farms
HomeFirst™’s Meadow Creek in New Haven is in on the fall fun too! Blake’s Orchard & Cider Mill, located just over 20 minutes away from Meadow Creek, is a family-owned cider mill open from June until December. In the warmer months you and your family can come and pick your own apples, and once the Michigan winter kicks in, Blake’s is open for Christmas tree shopping as well! Blake Farms also hosts a variety of events and festivals throughout the year that are definitely worth the visit.
Riverbrook – Yates Cider Mill
Our Riverbrook community is just about a half hour’s drive away from historic Yates Cider Mill in Rochester Hills.
