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.
Amazing place! Just stopped in to get some fresh cider while on a road trip and discovered a fantastic family friendly land of Oz adventure with delicious fresh local food. I recommend this wonderful place to everyone within driving distance.
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.
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!!!
It is a wonderful stop for the family in September and October. We visit here several times a season to get apples and pumpkins. The Apple slushes and apple donuts are to die for.
“Love this place — we go every year!”
Curtis Orchard is filled with plenty of activities for young and old! Every time we go we can’t leave without getting some of there delicious Apple Cider and donuts! Don’t forget to bring quarters so you can feed the goats and chickens! My boys love being able to ride the ponies and slide down the big slides, and of course it’s not tradition without taking the tractor wagon ride through the orchard then walking out into the patch to find the biggest pumpkin!
My wife and I love this place. It’s great for couple to go to and just walk around and if you have kids they will love it too. The food is great, the corn maze isn’t too big, and they have a wagon ride to go on. If you go make sure to pick up a half dozen of apple doughnuts. They also let you pick your own apples and pumpkins, but I haven’t done this. The apple cider they have is fantastic as well. This place is great for everyone who loves the outdoors during the fall.
Awesome place especially for the kids all food is homemade apple donuts and apple cider are amazing staff are super friendly they have a bit to do there for the kids feels like home.
