Whistling Well Farm Reviews
I took my two grandchildren and it was so nice not to have pay to "get in". They have wagons to use which made the trip to the apples more doable for one adult and two toddlers! Food truck was on... more »
This farm is pleasant and simple but has everything you need. It was snowing so we didn’t want to stay long. A neighboring orchard would not let us buy pumpkins without paying the admission fee... more »
Great little orchard. Loved that we could pick our own. We tried a few of the chestnut crabapples and regret not buying more! Delicious! Prices are hard to beat as well. We will definitely go back.
This is our FAVORITE apple picking farm. They have wagons that the children can ride in to get to the trees (parent pulled). It’s very simple...no jolly jumpers or mazes but that’s how we wanted it. No admission fee. The apples are great. If you want a simple apple picking experience without an admission fee, this place is perfect. The family running the farm was also very kind. This farm will be a part of our family tradition in the years to come.
