What started in 1994 as a family project has blossomed into a local attraction for all ages to enjoy. Customers can pick their own apples, strawberries, cherries, peaches, apricots, and pumpkins. We also host many events such as our BlueGrass Festival (Labor Day Weekend), Hot Air Balloon Festival (usually the 2nd weekend in September), and Pumpkin Fest in October. Families can enjoy a bite to eat in our cafe or take home one of our signature sauces, jellies, or jams from the store. Local favorites from the cafe include hot apple cider doughnuts, homemade fries, and ice cold apple cider slushies. We also offer tractor rides into the orchard for picking as well as a playground and corn maze for the kids.

This is a very good orchard. They have a gift shop by the entrance where you can purchase a lot of different items like apple cider, jams, jelly's, etc. They keep the place very well maintained.

We decided to visit to get apples and related products. The last mile onward, it was very dusty and unpaved. This added to the dust on the orchard premises. Thus, we decided against apple picking or any other activity. Our car got caked with the...More
