We live in the area, so go there fairly often for apple season, apple pies at holiday time, and for the craft booths. The staff is always friendly, and there is plenty of choice for fruit and veggies, sometimes the deals are fantastic. The pies are delicious, tho there are slightly cheaper pies at other Apple hill places, but with... More

Small grocery with tons of locally grown items. Jams, syrups, BBQ sauces, fresh fruits and veggies. They also make thier own pies well worth it if your in the area. Fresh apple cider and if the grill is going try the tri tip sandwich, awsome.

I love that Boa Vista is open year round and you can get home made pies frozen or fresh baked as well as other sweet treats. Wine tasting is ok (keep in mind this is an orchard not a vineyard) - have bought wine here before but the wine tasting experience here is so so - they charge $2 for... More

Any time is a good time to visit Apple Hill. Boa Vista is open year around. The only one that is. Others are open in the fall till Christmas. That is their busiest time of year. Lots of crafts, food, wine, apple delights of all kinds. Great times for the whole family. Plan a day at least to see many... More

The best apple cider can be had here! Perfect sweetness to tang on the cider. I also enjoy the sample table. Some years certain apples are not as crisp and juicy as other years. I prefer to taste before I buy apples. You can also speak to someone knowledgeable about the apples and which variety are for cooking, etc. The... More

The store is big and open year around. They keep most of fruit available around and the stock is usually fresh in season. No wax on the apple, pear, and other fruits. Driving down there is far from cities, but always worth to stop by. Their wines are ok for table wines. Sweet wines are always welcome to most of... More

I enjoyed my visit to Boa Vista. They had the second best price I could find for my favorite apples, however, that place ran out, so I got mine here! Wide range of products in their store. Good place to stop. Nice picnic area right across the road.

Boa Vista is always one of our stops on our yearly multi visits to Apple Hill. We have found over the years as this region becomes more known to people that week days are the best time to come up and shop for our apples, jams,fritters and donuts. Boa Vista seems to have the largest selection of fresh fruits and... More
