Go to the wrong "cider mill" and you might drop $50 or more for the pleasure of being treated like cattle, shunted into a "fair" where everything costs extra money, and finding that the only thing the kids pick are their noses. Avoid disappointment and get what you want with Blake Farms. Go to the cider mill on a weekend and, sure, things might get a little crazy with all the screeching kids, but between the cider mill, the Almont Garden Center, and Blake's Big Apple, chances are you'll find what you want, from petting zoos to U-pick fields to a winery's tasting room.
