Fall in SE Michigan, The Cider Mill Visit, a Must Do.

Copyright 2014, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Yes, fall in SE Michigan screams cider mill.  Sort the apples.

A pretty fall display:


Pressing the cider (hydraulics do the work). Notes I took:  120 or so gallons of cider. Starts with 6000 apples. Give or take. 20 minutes or so to load the presses.  They use at least 3 different types of apples.


Filling the cider jugs for customers:


For sale!

Someone else was having a autumn snack:


And, along the waterway, which had a few bridges, we find a troll to tip his hat at us.



Ahhh, the cider mill.

Thanks Jan. Held my breath just right, a hand held shot. Some days I get it sorta right! :-)
