Nestled in the picturesque village of Romeo, Michigan, within driving distance of Rochester, MI, Stony Creek Orchard & Cider Mill is more than just an orchard. Stony Creek is a quaint farm that provides all the essentials for a fun outing - handmade treats, hayrides, apple picking, and antiques.
Stony Creek presents a step back in time through displays of several farming antiques that date back over 100 years. The apple orchards also present a glimpse of what the orchard and mill were like during the traditional farming days. As you take in the barns and beautiful landscape, you can enjoy a refreshing glass of cider and a hot donut at the picnic area. Adults and children alike can pick their own apples, pumpkins and raspberries. Visitors can shop for apples, pears, pumpkins, gourds, jams, jellies, honey, maple syrup and other great products in the salesroom. Don't forget those moonlit hayrides that are a tradition around Stoney Creek on Friday and Saturday nights in October.
Stony Creek has been a fixture in Michigan since 1978 when Lorne Ross and Roger Ross began the cider mill operation in the historic village of Romeo. Because it was once inhabited by Chippewa Indians, Romeo later became known as Indian Village. The village began to flourish with new business during the 1830s. Romeo was given its current name in 1838 by Mrs. Laura Taylor, who chose the uncommon name for its classic, melodic sound.
