Haunted Cider Mill
Find the ghost of Johnny Appleseed, who has been roaming Michigan orchards for the last 171 years. He has a special ghostly presence at the Haunted Cider Mill. Rumor has it Johnny feels apples should be picked and eaten from the tree, not ground up into juice at these new-fangled cider mills. To him, it feels like his life juice is being squeezed right out. The owner, Steve Tennes, reports a tall, slender man roams through the orchard with an ax in hand and a cooking pot on his head. Others feel Johnny is following them, ever so closely. He believes the haunting is Johnny’s revenge for all apples who have suffered at the cider mill.
Those who dare can see if they feel the presence of Frank-n-Seed. For the more timid, take a twist of turns through the corn maze, or pick apples, berries or peaches.
Tickets are $7 for the haunted mill and $3 each for either the hayride or corn maze; or $13 for all three attractions. The haunted cider mill is open Saturdays and Sundays in October, 1-5 p.m.
