Summer is ending and the fall feels are already enveloping around us!  From pumpkin spice everything to all the enticing color changes in the scenery, autumn in Michigan is one of the most beautiful times of the year in the mitten.  Before the first snow falls, Moceri Companies recommends its residents to enjoy the crisp fall air and fresh squeezed apple cider at the wide selection of cider mills in the area.

Whether you enjoy a brisk afternoon walk or the scrumptious cider and treats, cider mills are a Michigan staple that any and all are welcome to enjoy.  To make the most out of the autumn season by getting out in the great outdoors, take a look at some of these cider mills near you!
