Loads of fun for the family. All of the activities are free for ages 2 and under. Live music and good food.
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!!!
Grandkids love going here they have a blast every time – even our one year old.
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.
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!
Curtis Orchard is great place to visit with family and friends. When the weather is nicer, you can handpick apples; select pumpkins; and more. Don’t forget to visit the restaurant as well and make sure to try the apple doughnuts!
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
I’m so beyond thrilled we have such a treasure so close to home. Such a great little place!
“Friendly staff, great donuts.”
“Lots of fun for the kids. Ages 5 and 7.”
