10 of Our Favorite Michigan Apple Orchards
We are coming into the best time of year, in my opinion. I mean, really, what’s not to love about fall? Cool days, fashionable boots, fun scarves, tailgate parties, and of course, it’s apple and pumpkin season! Apple season means its time to visit apple farms, drink cider, pick apples and enjoy all the fun activities that these Michigan apple orchards have to offer.
Note: Be sure to check the business website to confirm hours and fall opening dates.
