Fall Fun

Great fresh cider made on site. Lots of fall fun including music, fresh made donuts, apples, maple syrup and Carmel apples. Fun to sit by the river and feed the ducks.

I've attempted to drive there, but it is very, very difficult. It sits on the corner of Franklin and 14 Mile Road down the street from me. When you approach there are signs around and in front of the Apartment complex across the street with "No Cider Mill Parking" here. The you have to try to park in the lot... More

We always made my brother bring us cider from here. Sadly, he has moved to California. It is a nice stop for a family on an autumn day. Don't miss the warm donuts.

Unpasteurized apple cider is hard to find and this place has the best. Plain and simple check it out.

Few places make unpasteurized cider like Franklin does, and no place makes fresh donuts like they do. There is nothing better to do in cider season than to go to Franklin cider mill for a cup of cold cider and a hot donut. My husband and I make special trips from New York for that express purpose.

The Franklin Cider mill is a great outing for families and visiting out of towners! The cider is delicious and my children love the donuts. Be prepared with cash in hand.

Love to visit this mill in the Fall. Warm donuts, cold,fresh cider, candy apples and best of all taking cider home to enjoy later. We are lucky in Michigan to have cider mills and this one is close to the city.

Great setting. Fantastic cider and baked goods. Parking lot is a bit congested and difficult to get in and out off.

Cider is a popular seasonal specialty in Michigan and there are numerous mills to choose from, all of which produce outstanding cider. However, the Franklin Cider Mill is in a class all by itself. It produces what I like to call 'liquid apples'...cider which has a clarity, flavor, and smoothness like no other. No one can touch them. Be forewarned,... More
