With a history that dates back to 1863, Yates Grist Mill opened its doors beside the rapidly flowing waters of the ‘then’ Clinton-Kalamazoo Canal. Amidst the beautiful countryside of Rochester, Michigan the memories began in full bloom.

With the Clinton River cascading over the Yates Dam and creating the stream that the mill uses for water power, by 1876 the Yates family installed a cider press. They incorporated their cider press into the existing water-powered process and began producing delicious Michigan cider. It then became known as Yates Cider Mill. Local farmers, orchard owners and landowners would bring their apples to Yates for custom apple pressing. Over all these years, Yates has been producing the same kind of fresh 100% all natural cider that folks enjoyed way back in 1876. You can enjoy Yates Cider Mill and the beautiful surrounding parks any day during the Fall. Why not carve out a little time to enjoy making your own memories at Yates Cider Mill?
