It's so exciting to watch cider being made from their viewing area located on the second floor of the barn at Uncle Johns Cider Mill. It's free to watch and very educational.

Wander Uncle John's Sunflower Trail with U Pick Sunflowers!  

The Michigan sunflower fields are just glorious at Uncle John's Cider Mill. Simply purchase a mason jar, take along some sissors from the stand, and fill your jar with these cheery yellow sunflowers! 

Sunflower picking is one of my favorite things to do in Michigan in the fall.  It lifts my spirits and supports local Michigan farmers

There is a cute store for preserves, can goods, gifts and home decor.  Also, be sure to visit the upstairs area in the barn for freshly made apple cider and warm donuts!  

Chris and I bought a gallon of cider and made our own Carmel sauce to make cinnamon hot cider drinks.
