Middleton Cider Mill Shelby Twp Review – Pics
Middleton Cider Mill is located on Dequindre Road in Shelby Twp, MI just a stone’s throw from M-59.
Most everyone in Metro Detroit is familiar with the popular Yates Cider Mill while Middleton sits virtually unnoticed just two miles down the road. Why? Well, Middleton Cider Mill isn’t quite as attractive as Yates and there isn’t as much to do to make it the tourist attraction that Yates is. But, in my opinion, Middleton is well worth the trip and compares favorably to Yates in many ways.

Middleton Cider Mill is the perfect place to stop for cider, donuts and pies if you don’t feel like wading through the crowds of most area cider mills. You can be in and out and gorging on donuts in less than 5 minutes. Middleton is very quant and attractive inside – just like a general store in farm country. They offer cider, donuts, pumpkins, corn stalks, straw, gourds, indian corn, pies, desserts and more. Middleton Cider Mill has excellent pies. They boast more than a dozen different
kinds. Try the Five Fruits of the Forest pie!
Middleton Cider Mill Pies Include
- Hi Apple
- Dutch Apple
- Caramel Apple Nut
- Fruits of the Forest (apple, rhubarb, strawberry, raspberry, blackberry)
- Cherry Crunch
- Strawberry Rhubarb
Middleton Cider Mill scores big points by being SO affordable. A gallon of cider costs a full 2 dollars LESS per gallon than Yates Cider Mill and the pies are a full $5 cheaper. I actually prefer the pies at Middleton to any other Metro Detroit cider mill pie I’ve tried. The donuts aren’t quite as delicious as Yates but they hold their own (and are cheaper). Even when cider prices soared a couple years ago due to a drought, Middleton brought their prices back down when the crops were healthier.
All in all, Middleton is the perfect spot if you want to want to avoid big crowds, are short on time, and want to get the most bang for your buck. Try to leave enough time in your visit to feed the geese and the ducks!
Middleton Cider Mill Hours – Middleton is open every day from 9a-6p from September through the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
