What is fall all about?

Warm apple cider and donuts, thick sweaters, and pumpkin-flavored everything.

I went around and asked people where I can grab the best donuts during the fall season.

4. Heidi's Farmstand & Bakery

Baked in-house, Heidi's is known for having great donuts.

You can grab a few donuts at the market or you can submit a custom order for your very own donuts.

From September to November, Heidi's features the pumpkin donut as their seasonal treat.

The best part of Heidi's is their donuts are CAKE donuts.

Personally, I believe cake donuts are superior to regularly made donuts.

To wash down the sweet treats, Heidi's also offers cider slushies!

While Yates is ranked number 3 on this list, the website says that simply

"the aroma of steaming fresh donuts and cider takes you back to the time in your childhood when life was full of mystery, friendships, excitement, fun, and adventure."

If the donuts do not tickle your fancy, Yates Cider Mill has one of the best ciders ever. You can also see how the cider is made on the Yates Cider Mill website.

An anonymous person states that Yates Cider Mill is

"The best apple cider in the midwest! The donuts melt in your mouth! Pony rides, pumpkin picking, apples, grilled corn, seasonal favorites. A beautiful scenic river to walk along. Family fun at Yate's Apple Cider Mill!"

2. Moelker Orchards & Farm Market

While it is not exactly apple cider donuts, Moelker's Old Bell Bakery sells apple cinnamon, buttermilk, and pumpkin donuts during the fall season.

You can get freshly baked pies, bread, and fudge for the rest of the year until the last apple is sold at Christmas.

1. Robinette's Apple Haus and Winery

I feel as though if I did not rank Robinnette's as number one, I would never hear the end of it for good reason.

If you are looking for the best cider donuts (or donuts in general) in West Michigan, Robinette's Orchard is where you need to head to.

I am tearing up with joy thinking about them.

Robinette's also offers a special pumpkin spice donut starting now until Thanksgiving.
