this is a good attraction for the kids. Everything in the shop is touristy and over priced. I didn't eat at the restaurant but I heard it was good. Maybe sometime I will give it a try.

Wow - thanks for the 5-star review. Even though we get more praise for our donuts, the fritters are indeed amazing and are something everyone needs to try at least once. Thanks for the kind review! More

I've been going to Curtis Apple Orchard with my kids and by myself to pick apples for 25 years. It used to be this little slice of prairie farmland with a small apple orchard and a pumpkin patch, on it and it had a nice but understated shop and a great maze for the kids to run in. Now it's...

We have the best customers! Thank you so much for the review. We'd like to think that local apples are the best to buy - you know where they come from, they're fresh, unwaxed, etc. We hope the rest of our customers are as gracious as you to put up with higher costs than you might find at a grocery...

This is an ideal place to get rid of the noise in the city and embrace some sort of country life inside the pumpkin farm and apple plantations. Most recommended to go in the fall season when everything is freshly ready to be harvested.

Awesome that you got a chance to come and enjoy the fall here. Don't forget that you can enjoy our place in the late summer as well. That's a great time to relax, have the place to yourself, and enjoy fresh peaches and cider slush. Thanks for the review! More

Curtis Orchards is a lovely place to go. It is difficult to access for those with mobility issues due to parking spots, rocky surfaces and smallish aisles in the store. But the quality of produce, baked goods, and cider can't be beat there. The only criticism is that it is more expensive than other similar venues. But the staff are... More

Thanks for the 4 stars. We know the big crowds we get in peak season can be challenging for those with mobility issues, so we appreciate you still coming out to enjoy our place. We hope that the paved asphalt from the store all the way from the store to the activity area help. We're always looking for ways to... More

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!

We visited twice this fall-such great facilities and charm! Love the playground and being able to pick your own apples and pumpkins! Pony rides were fun for the kids as well.

If you are looking for pumpkins in Central Illinois, explore other options, as Curtis Orchard tends to be over priced. However, the apple donuts and kid-friendly attractions are worth the trip.

Always appreciate the feedback, so thank you for taking the time to review. We do get the complaint once in awhile that we're over-commercialized, but that's such a generic term that we often wonder what people mean by that. If you wouldn't mind dropping us a line at admin@curtisorchard.com, we'd love to get your thoughts how to make things better.... More
