Our store and café are on flat, level ground – easily accessible for those with disabilities. The petting zoo and kids’ area is also accessible down a slight decline on an asphalt path. Gravel and uneven ground, however, make reaching the orchard & pumpkin patch more challenging.
The Flying Monkey Cafe is now closed for the 2020 season. We look forward to seeing you next year!

I’m so beyond thrilled we have such a treasure so close to home. Such a great little place!
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!

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.
“Lots of fun for the kids. Ages 5 and 7.”
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!
Nicest people working there. Great cider, donuts and apples!
“Is a great place to go so much to see so much to do and great food”
I bought a bag of apples and two jars of Curtis Orchards delicious Praline Pecan Honey Butter. Out of this world!
Pecan, Pumpkin, and Apple… oh pie!
Love the pies, cider donuts, and the Oz themed playground for the kids.
Their shoppe is huge and full of great gifts for a one-stop-shop! Stock up for parties or the holidays.
