Great fun for the kids a little pricey but they do have some of the best pumpkins and apple cider you can buy.

This place is ok for little kids. Anymore than 7+ and it's little too young. Been to other places that are similar that are cheaper. There are other place further up the road that are cheaper to pick your own fruit. Not as big but cheaper.

We visited to cut down a large tree, because in the past we've relied upon Butler's for oversized trees. We were not disappointed. Their new system of using sleds and field processing of the trees works extremely well. Plus, their trees were a better value than competitors'. The personnel were exceedingly nice and cheery, and truly appreciated our business. Make... More

There's a reason this place generates a stream of traffic most weekends. It's a great destination for local fresh farm produce. Reason ale prices and lots of seasonal choices throughout the year. Haven for anyone who wants local produce either pick your own or already harvested.

As an avid baker, canner, and cook, I regularly visit Butler's each growing season for high quality produce. When I don't have time to go pick my own, they generally have a good selection of produce in the store for reasonable prices. There are frequently events going on during the various seasons that are appropriate for families with children. It's... More

A group of us went for some pumpkin picking. It was expensive, overcrowded, and the pumpkin patch was kind of just an old corn field with pumpkins scattered about it.. BUT it got the job done, and as young adults, we blended right in with the kids. Lol!

This is one place that is generally close than it is open. I've driven here more than once and everytime ( on different days of the week), it is closed. I don't like to plan my visits by checking their website on the internet because it had a fresh produce market and orchards for picking so normally it should be... More

I love going and getting my fresh vegetables and fruits from local farmers. Or being able to go out and pick my own stuff- so neat to still to be able to do this. Just like my folks did growing up and being able to share this with family and friends.
