10685 Warren Road
Plymouth, MI 48170
Plymouth Orchards comes from simple beginnings: a small road-side operation on Warren road afront the ghost of a century old dairy farm and 60 acres of land. Eventually, the main farmhouse was taken down and 9 varieties of dwarf apple trees were planted. Simplicity is still the catalyst for the ambiance and success of the orchard today. The surrounding ninety acres of natural wooded beauty complete the 30 acres of farmed land which grows 16 varieties of dwarf apple trees. The cider mill’s growth reflects its popularity within Plymouth and surrounding communities.
