Yates Cider Mill is a cider mill in Rochester, Michigan. The mill traces its roots to 1863, when it was known as Yates Grist Mill. In order for the mill to utilize water power, the Yates Dam was built. The Yates Mill became the Yates Cider Mill in 1876 when a cider press was installed into the existing water powered process and the Mill began producing apple cider. Custom apple pressing was done for local farmers, orchard owners and landowners who brought their apples to the Mill.

  • I have been to Yates many times over the years and I have never been disappointed in the service, the quality of their products or the atmosphere. Don't get me wrong, the fall is prime time @ Yates.....  more

  • My favorite cider mill to go to. Doesn't have as much to do as some of the others, but you can feed some live animals and watch cider being made. They have a path you can walk along the river that connects to other walking trails. Oh! They also have the best cider and donuts of all the other cider mills in the area! Don't take my word 4 it... They won Channel 4's "Vote 4 the Best." Also, if you've been living under a rock like me, apparently "Fritter Friday" is a thing, and they are literally the best fritters I have ever eaten in my fat life. Crispy outside. Soft and flaky inside with gooey, crunchy apples. About the size of a small child. Worth every penny.
  • Best cider mill in Metro Detroit. It's changed and evolved over the years and generations. Beautiful area for family pictures along the Clinton River. The baked goods are amazing. Cider is so crisp and tangy. We look forward to this every year. Open till just about Christmas.
