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.
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.
Really nice place to have a vacation.
Very personable employees! Thanks, Chris for sharing great apple orchard life stories!
So much to do! And age appropriate activities! We will definitely be going every year!
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 😊
It is a wonderful stop for the family in September and October. We visit here several times a season to get apples and pumpkins. The Apple slushes and apple donuts are to die for.
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!
I’m so beyond thrilled we have such a treasure so close to home. Such a great little place!
Great selection of pumpkins and goodies. Something for everyone to do. Staff is friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking. Good food. We love going here.
