  • I have dealt with Butlers for the past 2 years. The people r friendly and helpful. I am unable to pick my self. No matter how much I order they have never let me down and the fruit was great. There barn has so much more to offer than any other pick your own place. I have one (pick your own place a half a mile for me but will drive to Butlers and tell my friends about it. It is well worth the drive.
  • This is a great place for families. They have plenty of activities for children and a few that adults can participate in too. The food and drinks are good and reasonably priced. Their market had a lot of options on food and drinks for you to take home.
  • The place has gone downhill even more than before. The store is full of overpriced nicknacks, they charge a per-person fee just to bless them with your footprints on their soil, and their in the field employees are downright surly. All of the downcounty people who come up to Damascus (aka "Hooterville") to get their produce cram the lot with BMWs and Jaguars, and navigate the narrow winding roads by driving way too fast right down the middle. If you want good, cheaper produce try Rock Hill Orchard a bit north of downtown Damascus on MD-27. That's where the locals go. If you don't mind driving a bit, try Pryor's Orchard south of Thurmont on US-15. They're even better. Butler's are way too full of themselves and the county should re-negotiate the lease on all that county park land they get to use to grow the produce if they are going to charge money to walk on it.
  • I've mostly visited the small market, but this is a great place with a family friendly atmosphere. Visiting during the fall you will find lots of apple flavored goodies such as apple cider doughnuts, and slushes. You can also pick your own berries during the summer. I would recommend giving this place a visit.
  • Butlers Orchard is a fine pick your own experience. I've downgraded my review a bit due to them tacking on an extra charge prior to even doing anything at the field. 1)Price - It's about $3 a person before you can do anything at the field. I find this to be a bit obnoxious but my guess is it offsets the people who were "sampling" in the fields without paying. The pick your own prices are generally fair. 2)Experience - They have anything you really would want to pick. Stop in the general store, for a quaint experience and pick up supplies for pickling or canning. You'll be directed to the fields where you would like to pick and given directions on where and how to pick. It's a wonderful experience for the kids and you can easily spend four hours at this place. The true highlight of this orchard is that they have a large playground, petting area, slide shoots, and maze area(corn maze only in fall). Additionally, the pumpkin festival is phenomenal and I believe the fee during this festival is all inclusive of getting in, hay ride and picking a pumpkin. So overall, this is a great place, with a lot to offer your children. The fee is a bit annoying and feels like some corporate entity gave them advice on following their bottom line. Whenever they stick to being a family farm experience, they excel.
