“Lots of fun for the kids. Ages 5 and 7.”
Amazing place! Just stopped in to get some fresh cider while on a road trip and discovered a fantastic family friendly land of Oz adventure with delicious fresh local food. I recommend this wonderful place to everyone within driving distance.
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!
It was a blast with all the food, activities and value!!
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 for beautiful apples, Apple picking, pumpkin patch, delicious Apple cider donuts, and many neat gifts. Plus the staff are so friendly and helpful. Stop by if you are in the area.
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 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 selection of pumpkins and goodies. Something for everyone to do. Staff is friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking. Good food. We love going here.
A working apple farm with cider press. Cafe with fresh donuts. You can watch them being made! Don’t miss the cider press. Gift shop with many interesting items. Goat to feed, play areas for different ages. Something different to do. Close to town but feels like a farm.
