About Suttons Bay Ciders -- for 40 years, Mark and Madelynn Korzon have spent their summers hiking, swimming, cycling and exploring all of the activities that Northern Michigan has to offer. Following the sale of their Ann Arbor based landscape architecture business in 2013, they set out to find their next adventure and settled on a plan to combine their artistic talents with their love of Leelanau Peninsula agriculture. They worked to plan orchards, move boulders, cultivate local plant life and generally put their decades of landscape architecture experience to work in order to create an ideal setting for their Northern Michigan Hard Cidery.
