Uncle John’s Cider Mill is one of the biggest and oldest cider mills in the Greater Lansing Area, according to its website.

Located straight off of US-127 in St. Johns, Uncle John’s has been known since the 1970s to provide fun fall activities for kids and adults alike.

Uncle John’s is open all summer long on weekends. It opens all week long beginning in August. Currently, it is open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day. Most of the activities, such as the tap room and wagon rides, begin after 11 a.m.

Uncle John’s hosts fall festivals almost every weekend in October and November. Its last date open is Dec. 23. The fall festivals include live music and activities, including a corn maze and wagon rides. On an average day, the taproom and main store are available for consumers to go into, peruse and buy goods.

Morgan Dowling, a student at LCC, said Uncle John’s is one of her favorite places to visit in the fall.

“I’ve been going there since I was a kid,” Dowling said. “It’s gotten so huge, and with so many new things to do, like the taproom.

I always loved going there in the fall with my friends and family to pick out pumpkins and drink apple cider, but now it has the taproom and live music …It’s a whole experience. It’s the best backdrop for fall pictures.”

Uncle John’s Cider Mill is always open for fall photo ops with its gorgeous pumpkin patch and apple orchard. During the summer, Uncle John’s has a beautiful Sunflower patch that is also open for people to take pictures.

Especially as the weather gets colder, Uncle John’s offers all that anyone could need to still have a fun fall time. With a warm apple cider in one hand, guests can also pick from small, medium and large sized pumpkins and gourds with their family and friends. It’s the perfect place to bundle up and enjoy the chilly weather surrounded, by the beautiful changing leaves!
