Alber Orchard and Cider Mill offers heirloom, locally grown apples.   It is also the perfect location for relaxed, country weddings and special events, field trips and family outings.  Located in Manchester, Michigan, just west of Detroit and Ann Arbor.

Great Selection of Fresh Locally Grown Apples

You'll love spending a day at the apple orchard!  Bring your friends, or plan you next event, company picnic or wedding at Alber Orchards, Manchester, Michigan, just outside Ann Arbor and Detroit.  At Alber Orchards, we grow a very large variety of apples, red apples and golden apples, early apples, and apples that ripen later in the year. We grow many of the varieties exclusively for our special blend of apples that go into the Alber Orchard cider.

We feature many heirloom varieties of apples-allowing you to enjoy the very special tastes and textures of these native fruits that are no longer available in grocery stores. We have most apples available for sampling when their variety is in season.

If you have a favorite, we probably grow it! Feel free to call us to see when your favorite is likely to come in season. Apples make a great gift, and can be shipped for a fee.
Note: because we are an heirloom orchard with many antique varieties of apples, we do not offer pick your own opportunities.
