Spent an enjoyable day seeing the mill and apple orchard, discovering the process for making cider and traveling back in time. The fresh cider and doughnuts were wonderful! I didn't have young children but they would really enjoy it. There is lots to do for them.

I have visited this mill several times growing up and then recently as an adult. In the summer they always have a craft show. They have several activities for kids outside like a trampoline and sand pit. For the adults there is a wine and cider store and a gift shop with treats and goodies

Amazing place for all ages. For adults you have a great wine tasting room with awesome apple cider. For children an outdoor bounce house without walls. Plus a gift shop offering homemade pies and other goodies. A must see!!! Surrounded by apple orchard and corn fields. If you go you must try their cherry wine made with Michigan cherries.

We had to stop - as we were told to check it out! The property is really neat--has a lot to offer for families and on a great fall day. We purchased the fudge (homemade on site) and it was amazing. We particularly liked the turtle fudge and oreo cookie fudge. The donuts, although they rave about them--were just cake... More

I was disappointed this year when we went. They kind of sold out and it isn't as friendly as it has been in the past. The prices have gone up A LOT and nothing tasted very fresh. When we went to the wine tasting 3 workers were standing around talking and acted like they didn't want to be bothered. I... More

Our visit to Uncle John's was just OK. Prices for apples, pies, cakes, etc were a little high for our income level. A lot of stuff to do with kids, but it will cost you a number of tokens. Overall it was worth a look see but it was not for us.

Donuts are simply not good. Cider is unpasturized. 7 bathrooms in the crowded place and no changing station. No strollers allows in the big barn. I wish I could have my Sunday morning back, this was supposed to be a fun excursion and it was the worst possible choice we could have made.

I used to go to Uncle Johns as a kid back in the 70s and 80s and the family loved it, so I wanted to carry on that tradition with my kids. Unfortunately they have so much going on these days that its become way too crowded and expensive for us. It's a great place with lots of wonderful donuts,... More
