If you want the best cider anywhere, this is the place to go! The staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating. We go back here year after year. We wouldn’t dream of getting apples, cider or the best donuts anywhere else.

Stopped for some cider when southbound on Rt. 127. Was surprised at what was being offered. A very nice array of food products and various other things. Spent time looking around and making some purchases.

I live locally and love this place. Apples, cider, donuts, Batterbee's Bread (the best!), MI Organics chocolates, Bur Oaks popcorn (also the best!), and all sorts of wonderful Michigan and locally-made products and goodies. I did quite a bit of Christmas shopping there this year....More
