  • A charming, well-organized farm store - one of the nicest we've seen. We came late in the afternoon to shop, not pick. We got to see a little of the very well-organized orchards - we'll be back to pic...  more »
  • Came here for pick your own apples and got carried away. If you only have time for a quick stop, they have a great farm stand with all their fruits and veggies fresh, local items, and baked goods. Id ...  more »
  • We had a great time picking a wide variety of apples. The fun begins with a ride through the orchard on wooden cart pulled by a tractor. Rows of trees are marked by variety. We got a combination for e...  more »

  • Love to come here foe puck your own fruits, especially the delicious pears! The country store is also adorable indoors. PS Christmas trees here last for months- for the last 3 years our trees have lasted 3 months from here!
  • This is our new fall spot. It couldn't be more beautiful. There's a wonderful view over the orchards when you pull into the market. They have so much amazing stuff inside! Cider, fresh apples, jams, preserves, and doughnuts! I would come here everyday if I could!
  • We always have a great time here- their apple picking tractor ride is always fun.
  • As a new mother to triplets one of my goals this year was to give my kids a great apple picking experience. This did not happen on this farm. The ground keeper at the Fuji apple section of the farm on Sunday 9/25 was very rude and talked down to people making me feel as if we are not welcome. Our family goal was to take a family photo using the beautiful backdrop but that didn't come with a price. The ground keeper yelled at us telling us to get moving that this is not an amusement park. Sorry to notify you but going apple picking in New England is equivalent to going to an amusement park this is clearly entertainment and a great afternoon event to do with your family. So this person really needs to evaluate their position as a grounds person so that Belltown Hill Orchards does not lose more customers. I for sure will not be back nor will all my friends after they hear my review. So I would think about it before you decide to invest an afternoon there.
  • We have been coming here with our son for the last 4 years and always had a wonderful expierence. Multiple tractor rides, beautiful grounds, wide variety, and delicious apple fritters. Unfortunately after my recent visit we may have to rethink where we go apple picking next year. First we were yelled at for taking up 2 parking spaces even though the person next to us parked over the line making it hard to park our truck in the next spot. The usual friendly staff seemed grumpy and almost lectured us every time we got off the tractor. I know it's rude to over sample but one employee said only one sample per group. I am fine sharing with my son so as not to waste but it is unhygienic to ask me to share one apple with the other 4 adults that were with me. If you don't have enough then maybe you should not offer pick your own.
