  • So much to do here!! There were still apples early November, and they are low enough on the trees that even the little kids can pick them. The hay ride is great fun. There are so many things for the kids to do: corn maze, play ground, petting zoo, fun house, haunted house, shops and more! Wonderful day out
  • Went this past weekend (Sunday 10/16/2016) and it was more than a 45 minute wait in an idling car to get inside the parking lot. Then another 15 minutes to pay a cover charge ($5 a head). Then 20 minutes of walking around to find a tree with ANY apples on it. Finally found them, but the place is almost entirely picked over. That is in part due to a spring frost which reduced the apple crop for the region, but also a lack of candor on the part of the farm that virtually all the apples are gone. The place has a circus atmosphere - loud live bands playing pop tunes that I found intrusive, a petting zoo, and an open-air beer garden. The apple-picking seemed almost secondary. I would not recommend Barton. Best to try nearby Fishkill Farms (which we loved last year but this year they are all "picked out" too) or other orchards along the west coast of the Hudson, there might be some better options there, and less of a carnival feel to the whole thing.
  • I like going here but you have to have a plan of attack. If you don't, you'll be spending half of the day on lines. I go with the wife and kids and we like to get our shopping done first thing...apple cider donuts, cider, pastries, etc then put them in the car and the rest of the day we just enjoy the activities. Bathroom lines can get long, If you take one kid to the bathroom take them all at the same time, trust me on this one... Lunch either bring your own or get on line early...lunch line is painful.... Kids always have a good time and so do we...except for the lines...so plan ahead...
  • I went on a school trip here last year and was really impressed. This year I am so disappointed with how my business is being held. I have been trying to reach someone for the past 2.5 weeks to receive a voicemail and I just keep getting transferred. If I do not get transferred my name and number get taken down and no one returns my calls. All the bus companies are now sold out because i cannot book without reserving the apple picking trip. I am so frustrated. I wish i can give 0 stars. I tried calling and a very rude assistant hung up on me. Do yourself a favor and go anywhere but here.
  • Waited on line to pay $5 a person to wait on more lines. PYO apples were okay, but not great. Would have purchased more (like apple cider donuts, etc.), but extremely long lines put us off. Please hire more people next season! Highlights: lots of parking and the goat walk.
