  • This is a great place for children of all ages. I took my grandchild and we were there for 5 hours doing all of the activities. 
  • Sorry excuse for a fall festival. So you drive up and they only take cash and direct you to an ATM to get cash. Then you go in and park and the place is so crowded. Costs a fortune to get in and what ...  read more »
  • The place is amazing for kids, during fall, when the weather is good. There are many games for all ages (but mainly 2-10) and there isn't too many children to crowd these games. Add to this the opport...  read more »
  • 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.
  • They now charge $3.00 Per Person to even get into the place before you pick anything. Ridiculous! A family of four now has to pay 12.00 before you even enter the front gates! We used to be 3x annual visitors for fruit and pumpkins. Will be looking for another farm now. Even the clerks were embarassed about the new fee. They said a lot of people had complained. We won't be back!
  • This is our first time to Maryland. We were looking for something for our sons' to do outside. Butler's Orchard is perfect. They have three large slides and a play ground. Our sons' are 9 and 10. The park equipment is for younger kids but overall they really enjoyed themselves. Also, the country store is amazing. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
  • Great place for berry picking, nice entertainment value for kids including animal viewing.. the berries are the best I've ever tasted..staff are friendly..
  • We went 20+ years for the strawberries, pumpkins, hayrides, and All enjoyed very much! Note: fresher safer than gassed up, colored produce sold as food at commercial food sellers. And to make a point about tickets: worth every cent! Buy them!
