The best cider and donuts around. It’s worth the wait for the delicious, fresh cider and apple- spice sugar donuts. The donuts are made fresh, and served warm. I usually stop here a few times during the season to bring them home to my family.

Huge wait on weekends to enter building that didn't have much in it! Donuts and cider seemed overpriced. There is a play area of tires for children but this seems very overrated.

Even though I am a lifelong resident of southeast Michigan this was my first stop at Erwin’s. The cider/donut line was long but it moved along and what a reward for the wait. These were the best donuts I have ever had! The 2 minute horse ride was overpriced at $5 but the grounds were clean and pleasant.

This orchard is always busy with groups and families. Play outside, pick your own, and/or shop. Plenty of parking. Delicious goodies!

Erwin’s Orchards has been on the outskirts of town ever since I can remember. They are mostly known for their great apples and cider and donuts, but have other items also such as berry picking. It is a place where many families and school children visit for tours, outside playground and hayrides. It is always fun and is a must-domevery fall.

I am an apple cider aficionado, and try to visit as many apple orchards as I can in the fall. Erwin's has the best overall cider of any of the Mills that I have visited.

Always a huge crowd on the weekends, but they move the line fast and the service is friendly.

We were here on a Sunday in the fall and it was as crowded as you might expect, but the line for the ride to the orchard moved quickly. We loved our Honeycrisp Apples (you pay a little more and get a special bag for these and they only let folks with that bag off at the Honeycrisp stop). My kids would have enjoyed it, but they were back home in Texas. Ha!

My daughter and I stopped in for cider, donuts, and apples while visiting family in the area. The cider is some of the best we have ever tasted! The donuts were good, but not amazing. One thing to be aware of is that they only accept cash and checks. We went to the counter to pay and the lady was rather short with us and told us that we needed to use the ATM on site. Then she got disgusted when we first said a half a dozen donuts and quickly changed it to a dozen. I just think they could be a little friendlier. I understand, we own a peach orchard and deal with the public at farmers' markets and people do change their minds. Also, it wouldn't hurt to get a load of gravel for the parking lot; it was a muddy mess!

I do not recommend. All about the money and not customer service. Parking horrendous. Crowds not their fault but several long rows come to unexpected dead end and then10-20 cars have to single file back up to roadway. Took me 20 minutes to get out of one of these rows. Wiards is equally or more busy but they provide attendants to direct parking. Donut line was literally 3 city blocks long. There was plenty of room for them to have set up temporary stations so that lines would have been shorter. They charge for every little thing. Charged $2 for each child to pet animals. Spicers has a petting farm as well and charges nothing. Had to leave with sad crying children.

Hands down the best donuts for any orchards/cider mills in the area. Most places do a plain donut with some cinnamon sugar on top - these have flavor all the way through. Apple spice with cinnamon sugar - awesome! The pumpkin and salted caramel flavors were also soooo delicious. These people know how to make a donut.

We often go apple picking here and then just enjoy the hay bales and goats. Oh ya, and the patch of sunflowers!
