BLAKE'S ORCHARD & CIDER MILL 

Growing good times since 1946.

Blake's Orchard & Cider Mill

Pack up the car and escape to the countryside where memories can be made with friends and family. Michigan’s four seasons can all be seen in their splendor throughout the year at Blake’s Orchard & Cider Mill. Plan a day of sipping hard cider, wine, or beer surrounded by soft pink apple blossoms in the springtime, pick your own ripe fruit and veggies in the summer, be captivated by leaves of infinite colors in the fall, and take a snowy wagon ride to cut down your Christmas tree in December.

Blake’s Orchard is a family owned and operated establishment located on a 120-acre farm in the quaint village of Armada, MI, just an hour northeast of Detroit. This location is home to our original Cider Mill featuring an open-air apple press, u-pick seasonal fruits and vegetables, our Funland area, Blake’s Tasting Room and Restaurant, and Lovey’s Lavender Market.
