Sietsema Orchards & Cider Mill

Back in the 1940's, the majority of Americans grew up on family farms. The number of farms and farmers has been steadily declining since then and fewer and fewer people have known the farming life. We are an exception to this trend. Being fourth generation farmers we have taken our dream and have been able to make that dream a reality. Before founding Sietsema Orchard & Cider Mill, Jerry Sietsema Sr. was in real estate. The year was 1934, and the Country was in the middle of the Great Depression. Jerry Sietsema Sr., decided to go out on a limb and start his own family farm and orchard. He purchased some land at Knapp and the East Beltline. The land and homestead once owned by a minister and his wife, which where part of the Underground Rail Road. He knew the land would be great for planting an orchard on. It was located far enough out of town, and high enough elevation to help prevent the apple blossoms from freezing in the late spring.

Jerry Sietsema Sr. operated his orchard and family farm from that location from 1934 to 1995. After that time Sietsema Orchards moved to 8540 2 Mile Road in Ada Michigan, where it resides today. Although the farm was fully operational and proving to be a success, the goods produced were sold on mainly a wholesale level. Beginning this year, 2010, we have decided to expand our business and our dream. This is where the 3rd, 4th, and 5th generation of Sietsema Orchards & Cider Mill hope to thrive and grow. We are committed to providing quality produce, and by opening our doors to the public, providing a family farm experience that we hope you enjoy. Come join us during this inaugural year for your family farm experience. Get lost in the orchards while picking your own apples, or relax on a hayride while sipping some fresh Cider. Don�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?t forget to stock up on some caramel apples to take home along with the perfect pumpkin you chose at the end of your trip. We also offer private tours, upon request, for schools and other small groups. Contact us for more information. We are very excited to embark on this new venture and are thrilled that you have decided to join us. Comments and suggestions are always welcome�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½? and so are you! On behalf of the Sietsema Family�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½? thank you or stopping by and supporting our dream!
