  • 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!
  • 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.
  • We came to pick apples on Halloween and had a lovely time. Tasted apples off the trees and fell in love with the Stayman variety--complex wine like nectar flavor. Got a 40lb bag for the price of a 20lb! Cider donuts are best I've ever tasted. And the staff were so friendly and helpful! Took a wagon ride around the whole orchard to leaf peep.
  • Awesome and tasty Apples this year! Great store, amazing cider donuts and cider! Last year the apples weren't that good, but that wasn't your fault! Keep up the great work!
  • Pick your own apples and haunted hay rides at Blue Jay's were staples of my childhood, but upon returning this past fall, I couldn't help but be a little disappointed. We only wanted to pick a few apples with our friends, and were forced to buy the $20 empty small bag to do so. I know the weather and our timing are huge factors on the quality of the apples, but it felt like a struggle to find good ones. The gift shop was a good place to grab some cider donuts (and better looking apples) before leaving.
