  • Best cider donuts yet! Great place to take young kids - learning station about bees & cute trivia questions throughout the orchard. Trolleys make the rounds of the orchard, so getting a lift out or back is easy, too. Pumpkin Patch across from the store. First visit, very impressed!
  • Had an amazing day of apple and pumpkin picking with visiting city-folk at Blue Jay Orchards. The apple variety that day was vast and delicious, the bee hive on display was certainly a high-point for my insect-loving nephew, and the treats (oh my gosh, the treats!) from the quaint country store were enjoyed long after our picture perfect day outdoors. Must try: apple cider, horseradish pickles, and the caramel corn!
  • Large orchard. Great experience with my wife and kids walking to the apples and picking our own. Love it at harvest time/halloween time when they have a pumpkin patch area that my little ones love. Great products for sale inside too. I particularly enjoy the opportunity to purchase items from other local Connecticut farms like honey and Maple candy from Vermont.
  • We go on a field trip every year and the kids have a great time! The guide is so nice and they are so accommodating. The best part about the whole place is the Country store. It has lots of goodies and deliciousness for the fall season.
  • Although it was raining the day I visited and I didn't get to go through the orchards, even the inside shop was wonderful to browse. Had lots of "made with care" baked goods and products. Their jams are easily my most favorite for flavor, nostalgia, and uniqueness.
