Miller’s Big Red Greenhouses & Cider Mill - Washington Township

Review:  Miller’s Big Red Greenhouses & Cider Mill
Guest Blogger: Lisa from the No Nuts Moms Group

I attended my son’s first class field trip today at Miller’s Big Red Greenhouses and Cider Mill in Washington Township.  This is my first time visiting and I really enjoyed it.  They have a large variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and fall flowers to choose from.  And of course, inside the cider mill you will find pie, donuts, cider and all the yummy treats you look forward to when visiting a cider mill.  If your child has a peanut or nut allergy like mine then just bring along your own special treat.  My son was happy with the chocolate chip cookies that I packed.

When we first arrived, we all took a hayride through the orchard and we were able to see the apple trees, fruit trees and pumpkin patch.   We then stopped off to pick our own apples.   I think this was our favorite part of the day and would love to come back and do it again.  The kids also enjoyed the petting zoo and the large stacks of hay for climbing.  If you go during the week, the petting zoo, Straw Mountain and the corn maze is free.  Starting in October, haunted hayrides are also available during the weekends.

This is a nice cider mill with a lot to offer.  I will definitely come back and pick fresh fruit and let the children pick their own pumpkin from the pumpkin patch.  For more information visit their website at or call (586) 752-7888.
