  • It is worth the trip to the top of the mountain for the beautiful scenery. If you have never picked apples from a tree, this is your chance. Other baked goods, cider donuts, preserves, etc. or sold....  more

  • This place is actually overwhelming! We visited on a Thursday, so although there were many people there, I am sure it was not as crowded as it would be on a weekend. We did not have a lot of time...

  • This is a nice little getaway for a few hours. A Breathtaking view, very nice and friendly atmosphere while wine tasting. We enjoyed sampling the different types of peaches, and trying the famous apple cider donuts, bread pudding, and ice cream. If you would like to sample wine, you can sample flights as there were multiple flight options to choose from, ranging from dry to sweet. You can pick your own peaches, or purchase fresh peaches already picked at the stand. Prices were reasonable on all purchases we made, and overall it was just a great experience, a peaceful afternoon.
  • We were really excited to check orchard out, but we're disappointed to see that we couldn't bring our pup with us. So I let the kids go into the country store to check it out while I hung with the dog in the parking lot and took pictures of the beautiful surroundings. Love where this place is located and would love to fully check it out sometime. But traveling with our dog will make that difficult, it seems.
