Cooler Temps Mean It’s Time For A Trip To The Cider Mill

NORTHVILLE (WWJ)– A chill is in the air, and the leaves have begun to fall. WWJ’s Beth Fisher reports … you know what that means: a trip to the cider mill.

Fisher stopped by a cider mill, which has been in operation for over well over a century.

Parmenters Cider Mill which has been in operation since 1873, has been seeing a steady flow of folks coming in for an autumn treat: cider and donuts.

The Northville cider mill is going full speed – with the apple press turning the fresh apples into cider and donuts rolled in cinnamon to complete the tasty combination.

Cheryl Nelson and her family have owned and run the mill for 20 years and she tells WWJ that they don’t just sell cider:

“Apple pies, caramel apples we have mostly Michigan made products for sale like jams and salsa. The mill also make their own wine, fudge and cinnamon almonds.

Nelson says on a busy day they sell about 1000 gallons of apple cider.
