Spicer Orchard in Fenton

Spicer Orchards is a big and beloved piece of the Fenton community and history.  Growing fruit is a craft at Spicer Orchards: a craft that has been handed down through the generations.  Today, the orchard offers tons of activities including You-Pick, playgrounds and inflatables, a WORK-OF-ART corn maze, and more.  Every Fall, Spicer hosts the Harvest Festival and the 5K Pumpkin Run.  Of course, there is plenty of Spicer’s delicious donuts and cider!

Spicer Orchards History

The Spicer family has been growing fruit for six generations. Their original farm was near Detroit. The Spicer fruit was taken by horse and wagon downtown.  After I-96 was built, the family purchased a farm in Linden and a small market. This farm supplied the Novi market with fruit for many years.

In 1967, the farm in Hartland was purchased.  The Spicer farm market was first located in a 100-year-old barn just east of their present market. An addition was put on to an existing barn and their first donut room was located in the silo.

In 1980, the 2nd Hartland market was built at the current location. The present building was designed after an old Victorian carriage house that once stood on the farm. The building has 10,000-bushel storage, a sorting machine, a donut shop, a bakery, a cider mill, a winery, and a salesroom. In 2009, they added their own winery!  With all that fruit, why not?
