The Genesee County Mom’s Guide to Cider Mills & Apple Orchards

Fall is far and away my favorite season and one of my many reasons I absolutely love living in this gorgeous area. I cannot get enough of the crisp morning air, apples, over-sized sweaters, pumpkins, fall festivals, pies, cozy socks, and the cider and donuts. Oh, the cider and donuts…how I love you.

One of my favorite fall family traditions is a visit to an apple orchard for some tasty cider and donuts and perhaps a bit of apple picking. I’ve rounded up a list of local cider mill & orchard locations for you to get your fall on with. If I missed one, please let me know, as I would be deeply disappointed to miss a good opportunity for a cup of fresh cider and a warm donut!
