We really wanted to like Butler's Orchard but after waiting over an hour to drive in and park, we were summarily yelled at for walking to the bathroom instead of moving our car to the bathroom. After selecting and purchasing pumpkins, we then waited in traffic for another 15 minutes to park at the Farmer's Market, and then another 20... More

The market shop here has lots of fresh produce and packaged food items as well as little gifts. The staff are great and the pick your own is a great experience. Although it can get quite crowded and busy they seem well equipped to handle all of the people.

Great 11 bucks spending. Hay ride to the pumpkin patch, slides, face painting, pony riding and mazes, big and small. Food available and even ATMs to offer cash withdrawal. Visit the store too, aka the market. Great falloween stuff. Delicious apples, pumpkins, pies and other funny stuff. You can spend the whole day at Butler's.

A very good place to pick from a variety of fruit, depending on the season. Well-equipped to handle large crowds with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. But call in advance to find out about the availability of the fruit for picking. Unfortunately, I arrived yesterday (third Sunday in September) and the apple trees had already been picked over. Fortunately, right... More

It was Saturday morning and I had no set plans on where to spend the day. I started my "research" and stumbled upon Butler's Orchard website. Found out that it was their first day of strawberry picking season. I knew what I was going to do that Saturday :-) It's about 45 minutes drive for me. Me and my wife... More

I love going to Butler's Orchard! Between pick your own fruits and vegetables, the pumpkin festival, and the arts and crafts available, what's NOT to love about this place?!

Butler's is really great for anyone looking for local vegetables, fruits and other stuff... In addition to locally grown food, there are local food accessories and other plants available...

This is a local gem. I love being able to purchase seasonally grown produce and fresh baked goods. You can also find local honey, canned goods, soaps, and crafts. You can pick your own fruit and in the fall they have hay rides and cut your own holiday trees. It's a family owned business where everyone is extremely friendly and... More

Butler's Orchard is very nice with a wide selection of merchandise. It was very similar to the farms and orchards we are accustomed to in our area. It is definitely worth a visit during the fall harvest season.
