  • They are pricey for anything the children do. You have to buy a package thing and they won't separate. WE ended up walking out and going to another orchard  more »
  • A Must Stop when in Town and especially during the Apple Season. So plan a trip to Ellijat and put Hillcrest on your list of places to stop and shop!  more »
  • $10 each person just to enter was a little much. When we went there were hardly any apples left on the trees to pick. The kids did love the petting zoo though. All together we had fun.  more »

  • Crowded, chaotic, bad food, and mediocre apples. We went there last weekend with our 17 mo son. My wife waited 30+ minutes (in line with many other moms/kids) to get into the one (!) indoor bathroom. We bought 'barbecue' sandwiches that seemed like they had been made in a crockpot and drank 'cider' that was almost as tasteless as apple juice. Our main reason for stopping was to buy fresh apples, but despite tasting samples first and carefully picking through the bins in the store, the ones I bought (of several different varieties) have turned out to be mostly over-ripe, too soft, and tasteless. The only good food we got was an apple fritter. All that being said, they have a big outdoor area (you have to pay for admission) that is obviously a blast for the older kids - live music, petting zoo, bouncy area, even mini golf. If you have older kids, this place may be worthwhile. But if you have toddlers or are looking for lunch or even some apples, this place isn't worth it.
  • School field trip! Awesome place for kids. My son loved the mini zip line. The petting zoo was neat. Lots of history, very educational. Thanks!
  • 4th Sunday of October, they still had apple to pick from tree. Nearby Apple farms were out of apples. Nice experience. Nice food. Dont miss roasted corn. Pig race 3rd round was fun.
  • We've gone every year for the last 5 years. They always add something new every year. The kids have a blast lots to do and what can I say other than deep fried candy bars!!!! Nom Nomm!
  • Lots to do. Loved the band. But after paying a $10 admission fee, I would expect all activities to be included. A 5 minute pony ride was $5 more, bungee trampoline another $8. Also apples were not well labelled at all. Not really sure what we ended up picking! I would also skip the "fried" apple pie. It was a room temperature baked tasteless pie in a plastic wrapper. We were there from 1 till 6 pm at close on a Saturday in September and the kids had a great time.
