Customers can pick their own apples, strawberries, cherries, peaches, apricots, and pumpkins. We also host many events such as our BlueGrass Festival (Labor Day Weekend), Hot Air Balloon Festival (usually the 2nd weekend in September), and Pumpkin Fest in October. Families can enjoy a bite to eat in our cafe or take home one of our signature sauces, jellies, or jams from the store. Local favorites from the cafe include hot apple cider doughnuts, homemade fries, and ice cold apple cider slushies. We also offer tractor rides into the orchard for picking as well as a playground and corn maze for the kids. « less

My husband and I have taken the kids to their kite festival, hot air balloon sail, and the hayrack ride at Halloween time. It's always fun but last nights visit was especially fun...my husband and I went alone for wine tasting!

I've visited Ditmar's a few times and I'm always delighted. It's fun to watch children discover the delight of an orchard. There is a nice variety of apples and the tractor ride is a delight -- most adults who hay ever been on a hay rack ride will enjoy this and two dollars is not outrageous. Today's visit included the... More

This will definately become a stop anytime we head up to the Omaha area. Peaches were in season when we were up last weekend and they are juicy, sweet and delicious. This reminds me of picking peaches off my Great Grandma's tree. I would love to come back in the fall when their apples are in season.

This is the most inconsistant place I have even been to. I was a playgroup director in Omaha for 3 years and this was an oft requested playgroup, so I went each year. For me it is unimpressive. There is a fun playground, a hayrack ride to the apples, and a little maze you can walk through. It is a... More

Fun place to visit. Kind of relaxing to to walk around & pick your own apples right from the tree. Go during the Hot Air Balloon Festival.... really a sight to see.

Excellent wine!! Cute little shop. They have a nice hayrack that will take you to the top to pick apples and then bring you back down. Perfect for family day!

My son and I had fun apple picking at Ditmars. We went a little too late in the season, but still enjoyed our time there. Other families were there getting pumpkins and the ones I saw were great looking! We enjoyed eating the yummy apple crisp with ice cream. My son (4 years old) LOVED the apple sling shot and... More

My family are frequent visitors, especially in the Fall. When other orchards and pumpkin patches in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area have often come to resemble theme parks more than a place for a good afternoon of getting good, fresh produce, Ditmars has stayed true to its roots. We've also enjoyed their seasonal events, like the Fields of Flight hot air... More
