  • A must stop type of place. Favorite time for me is a Sunday afternoon with an old time band playing and all the dancers dancing. Food and ice cream available. The owners are GREAT. May want to check their website for hours opened if wanting to visit.
  • Neat stop off of Parkway, lots of different apples.
  • Friendly staff. Great place for kids. Fun and educational.
  • Great place to stop and enjoy some good food.
  • The Cockman family was performing in these photos along with some of their very talented students. It was a wonderful day of music, great apples and meeting people who lived near the Orchard at Altapass and also meeting people from other states.
