Honeycrisp will change your life!!! Seriously these are really good! And the apple donuts? Good enough to start a fight over. This is a great orchard close to the UIUC campus. Lots of fun activities for kids too (hay rides, mazes, etc.) but the apples are where it’s at! Everytime I’m down there it’s a must visit.
I bought a bag of apples and two jars of Curtis Orchards delicious Praline Pecan Honey Butter. Out of this world!
“Friendly staff, great donuts.”
Great selection of pumpkins and goodies. Something for everyone to do. Staff is friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking. Good food. We love going here.
“Love this place — we go every year!”
A working apple farm with cider press. Cafe with fresh donuts. You can watch them being made! Don’t miss the cider press. Gift shop with many interesting items. Goat to feed, play areas for different ages. Something different to do. Close to town but feels like a farm.
I think they have 8 varieties of apples when we were there. the apple fritters are amazing. They are light and not too oily or sweet like found in most stores. The apple butter is really good and thick. Perfect for biscuits or cornbread.
Had dinner here with the family, afterwards we picked pumpkins with the grandkids. Everyone was friendly and helpful on my menu selections. The kids had a ball in the pumpkin patch! The store was awesome! I will definetly visit again whenever I’m in Champaign!!!
Great family place. Enjoy a day of fall fun, there is something for everyone with kids activities, apple picking and pumpkin patch and the country store! Love this place! 3rd year in a row we have come with grandkids.
Really nice place to have a vacation.
