Blue Jay Orchards in Bethel is a terrific "go-to" destination for the family. This genuine local family farm has been growing and harvesting some of the best apples in the area for many years. They offer "pick-your-own" when the growing season cooperates which is always fun for kids and adults alike. If that is not your cup of tea, you... More

I have been going to this place, for over 40+ years. It's fun, the Orchards are so much fun to run around in with the kids and play, Hide N Seek. Inside there are tasty samples of their delicious Apple Cider, you can purchase and take home. There are gifts, for those that didn't make the trip. If you don't... More

We have been going to BJ's every October. Wonderful place to pick apples. Great variety! Take the hay ride to get educated about growing apples. The selection of pies in the main store are fabulous.

enjoy picking your own apples? Well this is the farm to do just that. Very safe and organized by a family that cares. The crop is at it's best year after year. Also they offer take out donuts cider and other items. A must visit.

So disappointed by this orchard. There are better places in the area to go to (Jones, Silverman's Farm).

There is nothing better to do on a Saturday in September in Fairfield County than go to Blue Jay Orchards. Pick whatever is ripe. Take the hay ride. Visit the pumpkin patch. Definitely stop in the retail center and get a pie or donuts. Perfect for all generations!

Blue Jays is a great small orchard to bring family and friends young and old. With about 2 dozen apple varieties grown on 40+ acres, it is great fun food younsters to enjoy the outdoors and learn about food. Hayrides and pumpkin picking is also fun.

AVOID THIS PLACE. The Obnoxious and rude manager tried his damnedest to ruin my daughter's apple picking birthday. Forget the fact that we had a dozen local families come to their farm AND that we spent a few hundred bucks on apples AND that we had cleared the entire plan with the office two weeks before hand...

Even though the apples are overpriced, we go every year. It's a tradition to go apple picking, and eat their yummy apple cider donuts. We love Blue Jay Orchards!

My husband and I go to Blue Jay Orchards many times per season, as my homemade apple butter is a favorite among our friends and family. The staff is friendly and informative and the prices are reasonable. Bring your whole family for a great time, but leave your pets at home, as they don't allow dogs in the orchards any... More
