A great place to visit when the apples are ready for cider each fall. Beautiful setting on the river and close enough to the city. Although it is a bit more pricey than other cider mills, in might be worth it.

If you live in southern Oakland County, you’ve probably been here. Classic place to visit. I just wish they had more than plain donuts. Cinnamon Sugar would be nice. Plus their pie prices are high. But you won’t be disappointed

There are many cider mills in the area, and the Franklin Cider Mill is one of the more popular ones. The venue is nice and the cider and donuts are good.

I enjoy going to this cider mill every fall. It can get quite crowded on the weekend. Cider is excellent. Atmosphere is great.

Cute little place on a corner. Park, walk over a little bridge and see apples, honey, pies, doughnuts and cinnamon pullaparts! Lots of kids feeding the ducks in the stream.

I love the warm donuts here. The plain donuts come hot out of the fryer. Eat them right away. They have music playing is the background. The store sells tons of apples and jams. The atmosphere is nice here. You can see parts of the...More
