  • I was hesitant to review hoping my family was the only group that received shameful treatment by the staff, but after losing sleep over it and reading many reviews, it is clear that is not the case. That staff was unnecessarily rude to my family and was completely unwilling to accommodate our mid-sized group. While the rules are clearly posted and understood, the staff continued to treat us like nothing more than a commodity. My extended family drove from many hours away to enjoy a nice day together, but the staff had absolutely no care or consideration. One employee even went as far as to stalk our group because he was empowered to do so and made childish comments when we collectively decided to get our money back and forgo apple picking. I have never been treated so inhumanely in my life. I proceeded to speak with the owner who too was passive aggressive. His perceived racism and support of his staffs behavior was quite frankly shocking. He made it very clear that the discontent and treatment of my family were of little concern to him because they service "15,000 other visitors each day anyway." Although the grounds provide for a lot of fun activities, especially for the little kids who loved the day, there are too many other options for picking apples and pumpkins to visit a place that cares more about profit than customer experience. I personally had come from the city planning on purchasing many fresh goods, but after our experience, could not support the farm. Needless to say, we will probably never go back and would not encourage others to either.
  • The drive to Edwards Apple Orchard is a bit like walking through Dimple's Donuts. Unappealing, lackluster, and the same landscape of corn. But as you reach the apex of the hill, a new horizon is found. An unending land of apples gifts the eye with hope, that the corn has finished. As you pull in, you hear the bell sound across the prairie. It rings a gift greater than the Liberty Bell; instead, you hear the sound of arriving at Edwards Apple Orchard. Amongst fields of apples, a new hope for America is born, one filled with G.O.A.T.S: the greatest of all time. At Edwards Apple Orchards, the landscape draws you into the way we were: growing strong; and reminds of what we have today: the blessing of unlimited samples. Bring some cash, because you'll want to spend your life at Edwards Apple Orchards.
  • Edwards is a beautiful Orchard and has the most delicious Apple Cider Donuts I've ever tasted! The store always has samples that you can taste before you decide whether or not you wish to purchase a food item (The Apple Cider BBQ Sauce is Delicious!). It's a fantastic place to go at least once, or twice....or three times...:)
  • The environment of the shop upstairs and the Cider Mill downstairs were very clean. Shopping was a joy especially with all the tasting areas conveniently set up adjacent to the products. Seating in the Cider Mill was family style and crowded. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Navigating the site was at times a challenge if a walker or w/c was used or if one was elderly. The only mechanical device for going b/t the mill and the shop was an ancient 1-2 person grain lift which was not always in good working condition. Overall though it's a great experience.
  • Horrible customer service!!!! Let me just say that it's our yearly tradition to go there even before we had kids ! We live almost an hr away from Poplar Grove, we went on Sunday , I wanted to make sure that everything was perfectly prepared for our trip since we have 4small children. We have 4 kids under 6years old. God blessed us this year with beautiful twin girls 🤗 so since our girls can't walk yet I had to take stroller with us, but because I know that upstairs it's a regular store I took our small stroller to make sure it wasn't in anybody's way! When we got there we saw a sign for a stroller parking, and we were informed that we can't take stroller inside the shop! We informed the lady in front that we understand but it will be no way for us to shop holding two baby's and still hold our boys hands and shop!! I said that I understand that those are the rules but this is a little bit different situations cause it's two baby's not just one! We were informed that it doesn't matter and that we can just take turns and run in and shop😟 I was really upset!! I guess every place eventually turns into a money making business instead family place!
