Fall Fun at Spicer Orchards in Fenton

Fall Fun at Spicer
Orchards in Fenton
By Lauren Weber
Get out your sweaters and scarves for a fun fall adventure
at Spicer Orchards, located in
Fenton, Mich., an hour’s drive from Detroit.
Complete with tons of fun for kiddos, a pumpkin patch, fresh
cider and donuts and a wine tasting room for mom and dad to enjoy – Spicer’s is
the perfect spot to spend a fall afternoon.
I have been heading to
Spicer’s my entire life and it’s definitely one of my favorite traditions now
that I have a family of my own.
My toddler loves exploring
the grounds, making sure to stop and shovel corn in the corn barn, play in the
giant sandbox and get in the wooden train and pirate ship. We also generally
can’t get away without spending a few quarters to feed the donkeys, goats,
horses and chickens.
Other big kid favorites
include the giant tube slides, a zip line, several ride-on tricycles and
checking out the cool old John Deere tractors on the property.
Admission to the children’s
play area is a $2 donation. Parental tip: Don’t dress the kiddos too fancy –
they are sure to get filthy playing…But it’s all in good fun, right?!
Spicer’s also has hayrides
and more on the weekends, and for school groups looking to gain knowledge of
orchards. Another option for fun at an additional cost is the corn maze.
The Spicer family has been
growing fruit in southeastern Michigan for five generations. Although the
prices inside the farm market seem steep at times, I feel good knowing I’m
buying local and from a family-owned Michigan business.
Making the trek to visit
Spicer’s is absolutely worth it. Just don’t forget a camera to capture the
beautiful memories your family is sure to capture.
Happy fall!
