  • This orchard is not as crowded as others yet has events, good apple selection and entertainment. Fun place for family and couples. Navigating parking can be a challenge.  more »

  • I've been coming here ever since we had kids. And love it. 2015 was awesome - plenty of apples to pick from the trees and plenty for kids to do. They have a little tractor area where kids can ride tricycle styled tractors or human powered scooters. And they've got a hay maze & small farm where kids can see some of the animals; there's also a tractor ride. Sometimes they have a bouncy castle by the store. Speaking of the store, it's a quaint little farm store with a variety of things like cheeses, apples, ciders, pumpkins, pies, breads and various items you can even use for cooking. Little known secret... you can order your food and apples from the store instead of the huge line outside. Only downside is that yeah, it is a bit pricey and if you're outside for food, you may have to wait a little bit. And while in 2015 apples were plentiful through the end of October (at least), the drought in 2016 meant tiny apples and far fewer, with them pretty much picked by the second week of October. Also, for us the hayride didn't stop at different types of apple sections, which a few farms close by actually do (like Honey Pot). Still, it's a great farm with terrific apples. I'd recommend it. Nice picturesque scenery and a true New England feel for the fall.
  • This is a huge operation and as such it can get crazy here during the high season for apple picking. It seems like their orchards and lines to get the bags are well equipped for the volume, but their food operation has some catching up to do. Nevertheless, great views, great variety of apples, and a fun time had by all. Don't skip the cider donuts!
  • Shelburne Farm's offers apple picking (of several varieties) and pumpkin picking. I bought the larger of the bag size and ended up with about 20-25 pounds of apples for $35. I recommend going early. Lastly, they sell burgers, pork sausages, semi warm soup, and other simple lunch items.
  • We loved the orchard and there hay ride, but there setup for food hasn't changed over there years and it can take a reality looking time to get your hot dogs and hamburgers, which are ordered and paid for in one stand (stand in line), then you have to linger up again to get the food from the grill. If you pack your own lunch, there places is 5 stars!
  • What should have been a day of apple picking turned into a three hour waste of time. Being busy is fine. Being expensive is fine. Funneling car after car into a full parking lot and then directing people a mile away with some vague promise of side of the road parking is not ok. We never made it out of the car.
