Best Cider Mill 

Blake's Orchard and Cider Mill

17985 Armada Center Rd., Armada; 586-784-5343;

Once upon a time, metro Detroit families would pile into the station wagon, drive 10 miles into the country, and pick apples, heading home with a bushel of them, as well as a greasy paper bag filled with doughnuts. Since then, it's become a longer drive and a daylong outing, thanks to all that's expected of a cider mill these days. Blake's lives up to it all. Family-owned and -operated since 1946, Blake's has events, a bakery, cider, apples, a garden center, hard cider and wine, a barnyard funland ... oh, and U-pick orchards, just like the old days.
