Though the warm weather of late tells us differently – autumn is here! And for many of us at ExperiGreen Lawn Care, it’s hard not to think about cider mills and apple orchards this time of year. The time with family and friends rustling through the leaves, enjoying those heavenly cider donuts, caramel apples, and…yes…the cider – makes this one of the best times of the year.
As a company that is locally owned, ExperiGreen Lawn Care’s staff loves to support the locally owned cider mills in the the area. Whether it’s going there with our families to enjoy a few hours drinking cider, eating those delicious cider mill donuts, running through the corn maze or petting the farm animals – or just going there to pick up our favorite autumn drink – we look forward each year to this time of year.
With that in mind, here are our two favorite cider mills & orchards/farms in the Indianapolis area:
5717 North 300 West, Greenfield
Tuttle Orchards boasts a cider mill with fresh apple cider made right on the premises that is packaged for sale to visitors. Home-grown apples, blackberries, and pumpkins are also sold in the cider mill, along with fruit pies and other desserts made from local fare. Visitors can pick their own apples through the end of October, as well as pick their own pumpkins from the expansive pumpkin patch. Other fall activities and attractions at Tuttle Orchards include a challenging corn maze appropriate for kids and adults, farm animals with a petting area, concessions, and hayrides.
19975 Hamilton Boone Road, Sheridan
Stuckey Farm is a working orchard and farm that consists of over 4,000 apple trees boasting 27 different apple varieties, from which visitors can pick their own apples, or they can purchase apples already picked and packaged. The farm also boasts a fully operational cider mill, where a cider press makes fresh cider each day in the fall. Donuts, apple pies, apple fritters, and other apple concoctions are also available for sale in the Country Market, at prices comparable to local grocery stores. Also in the market visitors will find in-season produce, jellies, pies, honey, and gifts. Stuckey Farm also has 15 acres of pumpkins from which visitors can pick their own.
The staff at ExperiGreen Lawn Care hopes to see you at these or other cider mills in the area this fall.
