Apple season is here!  Taking your family to the apple orchard and picking your own apples is one of the best parts of September.  But do you know what's also fun?  Cider tasting!  We took a trip to Virtue Cider in Michigan and had a great afternoon cider tasting and on the farm.

Virtue Cider is located about 20 minutes northeast of South Haven in Fenville, Michigan.  It is open year round but especially fun during Spring, Summer and Fall when the tables and games are set up outside.

In the tasting room, you can get pre-fixed sample flights or you can create your own.  Half pints and pints are also available for purchase.

I sampled the semi-dries and my favorite was the Michigan Honey.  I went back for a half pint and we ended up leaving with a six pack as well!

Tasting flights cost $1 per taste, half pints run around $3 and full pints are $6-$8.

Virtue Cider is family friendly with fresh cider along with snacks available to purchase like local applesauce, gourmet pretzels, etc.  Ellie had a great time hanging out with the grown ups and her baby cousin.

Besides the tasting room, outdoor space with bags and live music on occasion, there are also farm animals.  A mama pig and her three little piglets were loving the camera and came right over to visit with us.

The sheep were so fun.  We walked over and Ellie said, "Hi sheep!" and they all turned to look at us!

While our visit to Virtue Cider was a little on the dreary side, we still had a great time.  And plan to come back the next time we are in the mitten state.  To plan your trip to Virtue Cider, visit VirtueCider.com.
