We were there in the fall and it was so much fun!~ Lots of activities for the kids, great apples and a really nice shop with lots of things for sale~
Great place to visit with the kids or just stop in the store for their signature donuts and cider and lots of other tasty items. Super friendly staff!

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.
I’m so beyond thrilled we have such a treasure so close to home. Such a great little place!
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.
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.
One of the best ciders in the Midwest; we try to get some every year. We got here on a beautiful fall day this time – ideal for photos on top of everything else. We love the shop. Stock up on apple varieties we love, nab a syrup or two, small bag of rocks (every year), apple donuts, and fudge (whether or not we need it), apple slushies when we need a drink, clever wall decor to crack us up, jams, honeys… The goats and chickens are always fun. … Glad to have a good orchard so close to us. … Read more
