Nicest people working there. Great cider, donuts and apples!
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.
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.
I really enjoyed It! the kids enjoyed picking out their pumpkins, we enjoyed buying our hot apple cider perfect day for that and it was very good! also our caramel apples and popcorn, apple donuts and more, cant wait to go again if you get to cold just go inside to shop a bit….
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!!!
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!
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 ?
