Michigan’s river system and climate make it ideal for cider mills and the beautiful landscape has only helped their popularity.

The presentation will highlight the Rochester Area cider mills, including Yates, Goodison, Paint Creek, Rochester, and Middleton.

“The fresh-pressed cider and warm donuts keep people coming back to our cider mills every September and October, keeping the apple industry a thriving part of Michigan’s economy,” says Community Relations Specialist Amanda Harrison Keighley.
