My family loves Curtis Orchard. Our first visit was in Sept. of 2014. We had just moved here and I was very pregnant with my daughter. The very next day, she decided to make a surprise early appearance! We have since made a visit to the orchard at least once every fall. The kids always have so much fun, even when we stick to the free activities. We also picked apples this year, near the end of September, and they were amazing! All four varieties were so delicious that we easily ate through all f… Read more
Pumpkins, apple cider, food, corn maze..so much to do. We go often! Shady spots, places to sit and rest, and inflatable slide for the kiddos.
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. You can pick your own pumpkins and apples, which can be pricey, but you will have a great time. If you don’t want to pick your own, there are plenty of pumpkins, apples and gourds to pick from.

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.
“Lots of fun for the kids. Ages 5 and 7.”
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’m so beyond thrilled we have such a treasure so close to home. Such a great little place!
I bought a bag of apples and two jars of Curtis Orchards delicious Praline Pecan Honey Butter. Out of this world!
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.
Opening day- Thursday, July 20! Now accepting application for 2023 season!
