Family owned and operated since 1886, The Dexter Cider Mill has been serving the greater Ann Arbor area for 132 years. It is the oldest, continuously operating cider mill in the State of Michigan. They bake and prepare daily delicious doughnuts, wood pressed cider, caramel apples and apple nut bread. On the weekends they also have homemade pies and other treats.

Alber Orchard and Cider Mill is a proud member of the Michigan Cider Makers Guild. The orchard grows both traditional and heirloom apples which are carefully selected and blended to provide a delicious apple cider you won’t forget. Make sure you check out the fantastic corn maze when you’re there!

After over a decade in the wedding and event industry both planning and designing gorgeous events, I made the decision to join the Reinhart team as a realtor. I was drawn to the real estate industry because of a passion for design and for helping people figure out that next big step in their lives. Not everyone has the ability to visualize what a space can become - and it's something I have spent over a decade doing. Whether you're looking to transition to your future home or staging your current home, I am able to help you visualize the potential of the space.
