Not alot of fancy stuff but the raspberries were reasonably priced and fun to pick. Going back soon for blueberries, and blackberries. Have picked then there before. Wear bug repellant. Bring cash. Bring water. CALL FIRST. they regulate picking so it is optimally good for pickers. A nice hour or two and will certainly make you appreciate the migrants who... More

We stopped for cider doughnuts mainly. Some of the bigger, more commercialized orchards charge an admission, so we were glad to skip that. The kids played a little while in a strawbale fort, I took some pictures, then headed to the store, debating whether to go out and pick apples or buy them. Opted to just get cider doughnuts, price...

I liked the price for the apples and they were fun to pick your own too. I have also taken preschool children on a tour here in the past and they let each child have a free apple to eat. very nice.

Our family has visited... More

We had a GREAT time!! I love that everything was very simple. We were given our baskets, directed where the most berries were, and we went to work. There were no extra attractions like train rides, etc., which I liked. We saw some "locals" there, which is always a good sign. We're definitely planning on going there for apple picking.... More
