Really nice place to have a vacation.
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.
Pumpkins, apple cider, food, corn maze..so much to do. We go often! Shady spots, places to sit and rest, and inflatable slide for the kiddos.

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.

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!
So much to do! And age appropriate activities! We will definitely be going every 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.
It was a blast with all the food, activities and value!!
I bought a bag of apples and two jars of Curtis Orchards delicious Praline Pecan Honey Butter. Out of this world!
Loads of fun for the family. All of the activities are free for ages 2 and under. Live music and good food.
