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!
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.

“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!
“Lots of fun for the kids. Ages 5 and 7.”
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 ?
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 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!
