We were there in the fall and it was so much fun!~ Lots of activities for the kids, great apples and a really nice shop with lots of things for sale~
Very personable employees! Thanks, Chris for sharing great apple orchard life stories!
“Lots of fun for the kids. Ages 5 and 7.”
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.
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.
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!
EXCELLENT. Cannot believe it took me so long to write this. Excellent! Apple Fritters are AMAZING!!!
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. … Read more
