Taste autumn’s goodness in apples you gather at one of many u-pick orchards
, or pick-up by the bushel at farmstands and roadside markets across the state. Another great family outing is a trip to a cider mill
for fresh-pressed seasonal treat. You get the best of both experiences at many farms, like Husted’s Farm Market & Cider Mill
in Kalamazoo. At Knaebe’s Mmmunchy Krunchy Apple Farm and Cider Mill
in Rogers City, they let you bag the already-picked fruit while you munch homemade baked goods, visit the animal farm or shop for gifts in Appleseed’s Mercantile. Take a wagon ride to a pumpkin patch
to find the perfect Jack-O-Lantern material, or get lost (temporarily) in a corn maze
. At Papa’s Pumpkin Patch
in Mount Pleasant the kids can ride the Pumpkin Train and the whole family will enjoy the corn maze and Michigan’s Field of Dreams baseball field.
