Apple Season Roundup

. October 1, 2014.

While Autumn is generally characterized by the new color and eventual falling of leaves, the season isn’t in full swing until you’re sipping fresh-pressed cider and eating a homemade cinnamon-sugar donut. And the Southeastern Michigan region has countless family-run, independent farms and orchards providing just that. Each year, families and friends with cider cravings head to local orchards to pick apples, prance in a pumpkin patch, and get lost in a corn maze. Wasem’s Fruit Farm in Milan will also have raspberries up until early October. Wiard’s Orchard in Ypsilanti, a local favorite, also offers hayrides. Manchester’s Alber Orchard and Cider Mill has been pressing apples for cider since 1890 and grows over 100 varieties of heirloom apples no longer offered in grocery stores. Watch out for “Showcase Weekends” at Dexter Cider Mill, where local musicians, artists, and other talent will entertain as guests shop the diverse variety of products from their signature cookbook, such as Cider Slushies and Apple BBQ sauce.
