    I've been going to Miller's Big Red for over 15 years… it's easily our favorite! We love the huge variety of apples (& other produce), friendly staff, & quality food.

    We're from Ontario but do TONS of cross-border shopping. Last year was our first year to go to a cider mill and we went to Ruby's up by Port Huron. It was a lovely afternoon for our family but very disappointing in that they didn't actually have apples to pick or for sale. That's why I suggested this post because I'd like to hear all about the other's in the area.

    Thanks for taking the time to do the post, Jolyn. I didn't mean to add another thing to your already full plate of busyness!

    We just love all of the activities at blakes and the treats inside the store are just to die for!
