Historic Site · Landmark
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 »
  • Beautiful scenery, trails and don’t forget the cider and donuts. The goats are so much fun to check out and feed. We also love the check out the selection of Michigan grown and made products. The honey is delicious. It’s a great spot for the whole family, who doesn’t love Michigan falls at the cider mill!
  • My all time favorite place to be in the summer and especially the fall. I love to walk along the long path (paved) that runs along side the Clinton River It’s so peaceful and serene and just what ya need sometimes to refuel your natural energy! As well as taking in all the beauty of true nature while listening to all the birds chirping away while sipping on my apple cider and indulging in their ever so awesome cinnamon & plain homemade donuts (YUMMY) Yates Cider Mill was built in 1863 then torn down and replaced in 1894. The waterwheel is still being used today! I can’t forget about their homemade pies and tasty ice cream. And let's not forget about the little area fenced in with goats and you can feed them too! Plus much much more!! I can’t say enough about this cider mill.
