  • The farm has the best apple pies I've tasted. Bake them and the crust is always cooked through. Cherry pie is good too. 
  • This city owned farm has always been a nice spot. They have animals for children to pet and see. In season you can pick your own fruit. There is a lovely shop where you can buy apples, fruits and vege...  more »
  • We were in the fall and the weather was very nice, the place is beautiful, with a huge plantation of apples (must PEAR as far as I can tell, too), of different qualities, all fresh and delicious, sweet as a honey ... Live this experience to bear the fruit straight from the walk and already consume is indescribable, it comes then of apples (here in Brazil we don't have it) is better still, fills the eyes and the palate! My nephew loved the experience and we adults too. Recommend awesome!

  • Went apple picking here on a Wednesday. It wasn't that crowded which was great. The signage to get to the apple trees was very confusing though. We went to the petting zoo portion originally thinking it was how to get to the apple trees (it wasn't), and everyone else there was having the same issues. But once we found the back rows of mature trees we had a nice time. The apple cider donuts smelled great when you walked by, but weren't very good when we ate them.
  • "Pick your own" apple orchard with hay rides out to the orchard. The minimum was a large bag for$30. There's also a farmstead produce store and animals to see and feed. It's a great place to bring kids or have a picnic. Convenient to the highway, behind the North Shore Mall. A bit expensive.
  • Nice little place to go apple picking. They have a little petting zoo and a gift shop that sells products such as sauces, fresh fruit, and other items. They make fresh cider donuts, which are pretty good.
  • I am not generally someone who complains in reviews, but my experience at this farm was thoroughly unenjoyable because of circumstances which I think are very correctable and I hope this gives feedback to the orchard to consider fixes. When we arrived at the orchard we were quickly and efficiently shuttled to a parking space. Hereafter efficiency evaporated. We waited in a line to purchase bags. You must purchase your bags ahead of time and then fill them with apples. Only after waiting and purchasing the bags did we find out that there were very few apples to be picked. We walked by row after poorly labeled row of bare trees until in a far corner we competed with other customers to pick what small, blemished apples remained clinging to the highest branches. After we had filled our bag (a rather unpleasant experience where we had to split up to search for apples), we attempted to go to the farm store only to find another line spanning out the door and down the side of the building. Somewhat disheartened we returned to our car to embark on a 30 minute drive out of the 300 yard span of the orchard. No one directed traffic and the jam was unending. In sum total we felt that once our money had changed hands there was little consideration for whether apples actually existed and whether there was a more efficient way to exit the orchard. Of the 2 hours spent at the orchard probably 70% was waiting in lines. This was far from the idyllic autumn apple picking experience for which we had hoped. I hope that for future reference the orchard can make sure that there is a reasonable supply of apples before selling you a bag, and that they could have someone handle some traffic direction. Had these things been in place this would have otherwise been a 4 star review.
  • Had fun but only Cortland apples were available on the trees that were open for picking. Excellent quality apples and cider.
