This is our 2nd year coming here. We absolutely love it! It’s definitely a great value. The kids always have a blast while we are here and we enjoy the gift shop as well. Definitely worth the trip ?
Stopped by for the first time on a Saturday to pick up some apples. Left with apples, cider, and donuts. Apples were fresh and crisp, the donuts were moist and addictive, and the cider had just the right amount of tart and sweet.
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.
Curtis Orchard is fun for the whole family. Especially the kids. Lots of fun things to do. Tasty apple donuts, fun gift shop, and fun activities for the kids outside.
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!
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.
Curtis Apple Orchard is great family-owned business. If you want to celebrate Fall, this is the place to come. They have great apple cider donuts and fritters, apple cider, pies, apples (peaches in late summer), and they serve great food, especially on weekends.

They have a great gift shop and they have a… Read more
My experiences at Curtis Orchard are consistently heartwarming. I go every year to celebrate the love of two of my best friends, and I stop in a few other times for pumpkins and apples. Your staff is always friendly and helpful, and the apple donuts are to die for. You’re a gem on the hand of Central Illinois. Thanks for being awesome!
We went here for my daughter’s school field trip and it was wonderful. We watched a very educational video on bees and how their apple cider was made and my daughter was completely amazed!
There is really something for everyone at Curtis Orchard! I love that I was able to let my 11month old play in the toddler area and she absolutely loved the baby swings out there! I was able to enjoy the mazes with my 6 and 7 year boys, and they loved the bouncy houses! My mother, husband and I enjoyed shopping at the store, and we all hope to return next year!!!
