  • A nice countryside farm and gift store. Lots of different treats for sale, and it's a fine place to spend some time on an afternoon.  more »
  • Autumnal adventure awaits. Come during the week if you can - gets absolutely zooey on weekends. There are hayrides into the orchards and pumpkin patch or you can walk under your own steam. It's worth ...  more »

  • My wife and I took the kids here today. I must say there were very few people but the apples were the best. I'm saying this as someone that isn't into apples, but my family is. I go for the store and the experience for our kids. The staff has been great, they still have many great choices to select from. Very accommodating and the best part I loved, there weren't too many people. It was more like a personal experience which is great for us!
  • Awesome little spot with great apple cider doughnuts as well as everything else you would expect from a place like this
  • This is a great place for all of your autumn activities. I would give them fewer stars for being overpriced, but the quality here is top notch. I have had more apple cider donuts from Blue Jay's than I have had in my entire life, and I have only lived in the area for a year. If you can't find time to get out to the orchard to pick your own apples and buy fresh donuts, don't fret. You can conveniently pick them up at Caraluzzi's!
  • Nice place but the bags to pick apples are expensive
  • I have been coming here for years when visiting family. For Hallow ween this place gets crowded. Best to come early. Plenty of parking. Plenty of pumpkins. They have good pies. Always like to look at the bees. they used to have free tractor rides to the back to get pumpkins but now you have to pay $2 per person. So if i want the ride it's an extra $10. I have skipped it. The cider is good and donuts. Prices are on the high side.
