“Last year our gallon sold for $7.95 and this year we’re at $9.60. So, yeah … a pretty significant jump,” said Mike Titus, owner of Yates Cider Mill in Rochester Hills.

Titus said he’s not a grower, but because of the low apple crop from Michigan farmers he’s had to buy apples from orchards in other states.

“It’s a tough position to be in and we’ve put up a couple of signs that just kind of explain, you know, what the situation is this year for everyone in the apple world,” Titus said, adding that they are offering deals and customers are coming in.

“People have been very understanding and it’s been great just to see everybody’s faces again this year,” he said.
