Must see · Farm · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Christ Orchard has been family owned and operated for nearly 30 years. The Midland Coal Company planted the orchard in the 1970s and asked the Elmwood FFA to manage it. Kurt Christ was integrally involved in the operation and upon graduation he began renting the orchard from the coal company. He then bought the orchard in the mid 1980s. The orchard has grown to include not only U-Pick apples, but also U-Pick pumpkins, fresh pressed apple cider, fall decorations, mums, fruit preserves and much more.

  • Big tasty selection of all the good stuff, apples, pumpkins, squash, and other veggies. Best apple cider possible! Polite and helpful, easy to get in and out, and lots of extras - jams, jellies...  more »
  • My wife and I enjoyed Christ Apple Orchard on an October Fall day. We enjoyed looking through the varieties of apples, while being surprised by all of the produce, jams, preserves, and other yummy...  more »
  • Our family had a great time here! Our daughters are 1.5 and 6 years old, and thoroughly enjoyed all the animals and picking apples. We appreciated that this place doesn’t charge ridiculous prices for a kid play zone - they’re functioning as a farm/orchard, not striving to entertain people. And, all the employees were very friendly and helpful.
  • I have been coming to Christ Orchard for over 20 years. I always love their apples, cider, mum's, pumpkins, squash....everything they sell is first quality. 😊. Family owned and operated, fast friendly service, and very helpful. You just don't get service and good produce like this just anywhere. I always come back in the fall for our farm fall display, and can find everything I need. (see photo of my Spoon River display). I also get their yummy squash, acorn, butternut and spaghetti squash to name a few. Makes a lovely farm kitchen display...that is until you decide to eat the squash. Also enclosing a photo of my kitchen basket with the apples and squash, with small pumpkin. If you are looking for old fashioned neighbourly farm produce this is the place to spend your dollars. Excellent and my go to place to buy my yearly jack-o'-lantern at Halloween. Christ Orchard is number 1 in my books! 💕👱
