Cider Mills & Donuts: 60+ Michigan Farms with the Best Fall Treats

Apple Cider Mills & Donuts in Michigan

Michigan is the best state for homemade donuts & apple cider. We love it so much we even have a fall festival in its honor!

We grow over 25 million bushels of apples annually, so it’s no wonder we have cider mills everywhere.

Pair that with on-site bakeries putting out dozens of sugary, fluffy donuts and you’ve got the stuff everyone’s fall dreams are made of.

If you’re a cider connoisseur like me, you’ll know that no two ciders are alike. Each cider mill uses its own combination of apples to produce one-of-a-kind flavors.

And now many cider mills, or cideries, are serving up hard cider, too. In fact, we found one location where you can pair your donut with beer if you’d like! Let the fall activities begin!

Moelker Orchards donuts

About Their Donuts & Cider
Moelker Orchards makes approximately 450 donuts per hour!

Each one takes 115 seconds to cook for a perfect crispy outer layer with a light and fluffy interior. And if you ask my husband, these are the best farm donuts in West Michigan.

While the Moelker donuts are incredible on their own, they’ve leveled up their game by serving Engelsma’s apple cider, regular winner of the Michigan Apple Cider Contest by the Great Lakes Ag Expo.

Ever since I’ve had Engelsma’s, I won’t try any other cider. It’s perfect. (I heard once that their secret ingredient might be honeycrisp apples.)

About Their Donuts & Cider
Cider Mill Closed 2022. (As of October 8, 2021, Bowens Mills has ceased apple cider production after the Michigan Dept of Ag said Bowen Mills was operating an unlicensed facility.)

Arguably the biggest draw of October Cider Sundays are the Cider Making Demonstrations on the old Apple Cider Mill.

Workers show the whole process from start to finish.

Apples are shoveled into the apple elevator, where they meet sharp knives and are pulverized.

The pulp showers down into the press inside, where it’s contained in burlap and made ready for pressing.

Trays of juicy apple pulp are piled on top of each other.

Eventually, the hydraulic press is used to apply pressure to the trays and squeeze the juice out.

  1. Grandview Orchard at Riley (76th) and 8th Avenue out Hudsonville direction has the cutest little donut trailer at their orchard. They make their own cider and then you can get cinnamon sugar donuts or salted caramel glazed. They ate delicious!

  2. Avatar photo

    Do we have to visit the Rockford Sprinkles, or will stopping by their Hudsonville or Ada locations also count towards my sticker? 😉

    (I take my donut related challenges way too seriously)
