Our family loves Jackson's Orchard. It is a large attraction to area people for the wonderful fruit and also the merchandising of the fruit and fruit products. School children can enjoy a bit of nature. For some children, this is the only place they can actually go to see the farming/agricultural process.

What a fun place to hang out at in the fall! All kinds of fresh fruit, apple cider, pies, among other goodies. During the fall on special weekends they have hay rides and activities for kids. They have pumpkins, also. Good place for a Saturday afternoon!

We went up for the WKU and BGHS and SWHS musical performances. It was a beautiful day and a lovely atmosphere. Jackson's Orchard is a little bit of mountain Shangri-La. There treats are excellent, as are the products (produce, honey, etc.) that they sell. The prices can be a little on the high side, but the quality is worth it.... More

My sister, two boys ages 11 and 10 and I went to the fall festival. So much to do there. I really recommend. We got our face painted, had a hay ride, ran through the hay maze, spray painted our hair, road horses, picked our own apples from their orchard, feed and petted animals. The kids favorite thing was the... More

Great place for everyone but especially the children. Go early because you will stay longer than you think you will.

My family loves to go to Jackson's Orchard in the fall. It's a lovely, family-friendly place. The prices are affordable with no cost for admission, $3.00 for the hayride, and $2.00 for the playground. I was very disappointed this year, however, because the restroom facilities were very inadequate. The small restroom they have was closed and had been for over... More

It's free to get in and so you pay $3 for a hayride to the orchard and pumpkin patch and corn maze. Yes you pay over the odds for Apple picking but it's a great experience for our kids who grew up in a city. Great choice of foods in the store and a cafe on site. A great way... More

In the summer find fresh peaches, fresh vegetable, plants for your garden! Jackson's has fresh cider slashes to refresh you and fun play areas for the kids! In the fall they offer fresh picked apples, weekend festivals, fun games for the kids!

It's always such a beautiful drive up a winding hill to open out into the Orchard. I enjoy knowing it has history in the community and love all the children's activities, especially in the fall. The pumpkin patch and corn maze are a family tradition.

We went with our son's class and they learned about apples and got to see the orchard. They had a blast on the things to do for kids like the big slides and some kind of rolling barrel. All the kids had a blast having fun and enjoy their apple cider .But of course we had to buy some great... More
