Food
“a 45 minute drive to St. Joseph but well worth it. Fabulous cider made from heirloom apples - delicious! Milk & Honey Ciders produces fine American cider from heirloom and traditional cider apple cultivars. Our farmhouse cidery and orchard focuses on interesting, dry, highly aromatic and tannic ciders made in the rolling hills of Stearns County with minimal intervention. Let the apples shine”
