About Blake Orchards

In summer 2022, Erwin Orchards in South Lyon closed as the owners have retired. Blake Orchards out of Armada, MI purchased the property. While Armada is a bit of a drive from Ann Arbor, South Lyon is much closer. Erwin has always been on our lists and we are updating the listings to reflect the new ownership.
