Do you like fresh rhubarb? How about asparagus? How about apple doghnuts, apple cider or pies? Valley Orchard is the senior citizen of orchards in the area as far as longevity goes. Offering seasonal produce and fall fruits all year 'round, the orchard is just across from the Cherry Valley municipal building. The folks there have been planting apple trees... More

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.

Take a step back in time... to a day when home grown produce was planted, picked and harvested with care... to a place where knowledgable family members and staff believe quality means more than quantity...to a time when life was a little bit slower and quite a bit friendlier...you've just taken a step into Valley Orchard. 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
