Donut Miss Post Family Farm

As the air gets crisp and the leaves yellow, you might find yourself driving to Post Family Farm. Located just 25 minutes west of Grand Rapids in Hudsonville, this farm is a wonderland for little kids and heaven for donut lovers.

Read on to learn why this place might be your go-to for family fun this fall in Grand Rapids.

Unbeatable Donuts & Cider

Let’s cut to the chase: the donuts at Post Family Farm are something you’ll dream about long after your visit.

Freshly made and iced by hand, these donuts are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The flavor? Out-of-this-world good. And if you’re lucky enough to get one warm—well, let’s just say it’ll be love at first bite.

Don’t forget to wash it down with some refreshing cider!

Pro Tip: These donuts are popular, so check their Facebook page for availability, especially during the spring – and sometimes other times of the year – when they offer cherry donuts.
