I’m so beyond thrilled we have such a treasure so close to home. Such a great little place!
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!
“Love this place — we go every year!”
Very personable employees! Thanks, Chris for sharing great apple orchard life stories!
Grandkids love going here they have a blast every time – even our one year old.
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.
I bought a bag of apples and two jars of Curtis Orchards delicious Praline Pecan Honey Butter. Out of this world!
Always enjoy the atmosphere when my family is there!! Will go back every year!!
I think they have 8 varieties of apples when we were there. the apple fritters are amazing. They are light and not too oily or sweet like found in most stores. The apple butter is really good and thick. Perfect for biscuits or cornbread.
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!
