Pressed Perfection

There are some classic elements that many Michiganders look forward to when it comes to fall. Cool crisp air, a gorgeous foliage color display, picking pumpkins and apples and of course visiting a cider mill for donuts and cider. Ever since I could walk my mum would take me to an orchard to pick apples and pumpkins, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the arrival of fall then with a trip to Blake Farms.  We picked our own apples, pumpkins and when we went inside they were actually pressing apples for cider. I think the process is fascinating to watch, and a unique experience I had to share with you.

  1. This is such a great tradition! I wish we had done something like that growing up! I think I need to find a new tradition for us to start 🙂 I love cider (and of course donuts)!!


  2. These pics are so great! I wish I could see it; I'll have to look up where something like this might be around me. Sure sounds like you know how to bring Autumn in.


  3. How neat is this! I didn't even know anything like this existed. I bet this cider tastes so much better than from say Walmart xxx


  4. This has me wanting to go back and visit Michigan. You and I always go to Yates, but they don't show their entire process this is awesome!


  5. 1. no idea that this existed anywhere that you could see2. love your pictures3. that place must smell AMAZING


  6. How neat is this to see! We have a cider mill near my house in PA, however they definitely do not let you see anything like this.


  7. Is it really just pressed apples? I had no idea. This was really neat to see thanks for sharing
