Less than 30 minutes from Ann Arbor, you’ll find the area’s best and oldest operating cider mill! The Dexter Cider Mill has been operating since 1886 and offers unpasteurized apple cider, doughnuts, caramel apples, and homemade pies. This is a classic cider location for many in the Ann Arbor area, so it can get busy!

Fall is the best time to sample new beers! You can sip on some fall flavored beers from the Ann Arbor Brewing Company. Their Titled Earth Series Autumn IPA and Oktoberfest beers have rich, hearty flavors and an amber color that will remind you of the falling leaves.

There’s nothing better than picking your own seasonal fruits! You can pick apples straight from the tree and pumpkins from the patch. If you’re looking for decorations, there’s a variety of mini pumpkins and gourds to choose from! Wasem Fruit Farm also has fresh apple cider and doughnuts.
