    The doughnuts are amazing!!! But OMG, the crowds. Forget about going on a Saturday or Sunday in the fall.

    Great place to take your kids and grandkids, but try to avoid the crowds on the weekend in the fall. We also like to take visiting adults. Everyone loves the cider donuts and large variety of apples. Plenty to do for kids while you wait in line for donuts and apples. On fall weekends it is packed so be prepared to wait for parking and standing in the donut line.

    We've made an annual tradition to go up to Sky Top for some apple picking, but to be honest, it's starting to be a hassle. The parking is an absolute nightmare because of how crowded it is. You're shoulder to shoulder with people anywhere you go around the buildings. Those donuts are worth the wait, but standing in line for 20 minutes starts to be a bit much when you've got a toddler in tow. The apples are good, and there's plenty to do up there, no question, but man, getting there is a battle.

    Love this place! We go at least twice a year to pick apples and there have been occasions we drive the one hour for just the delicious cider and donuts. If you want an outdoor adventure with the family or a group, this is a great option. You get to experience nature with all five senses at an affordable price! You can pick your own apples from a huge variety of trees or purchase ones already picked. You can also buy pies and jellies too. There is a small playground for the kids and an opportunity to feed and pet ducks, sheep, and goats...not to mention the natural landscape for plenty of photo opportunities! The only downside is the bathroom situation...port-a-potty.

    Really fun to go with other people. Very beautiful views in some parts of the orchard and they have some good stuff like honey and salsa that is some of the best I have ever had. They also have amazing apple cider donuts and apple pies. Overall really fun to just go and spend a day, really worth the drive.
