Great place to get home grown apples and vegetables. Come in the fall for the Pumpkin Fest and have a ball picking your own pumpkin and enjoying the other events.

Bought a strawberry rhubarb pie here in October but was disappointed that rhubarb and the bottom pie crust wasn't cooked and baked properly. Too crunchy almost like eating fresh celery and the pie bottom was too doey! I do like the produce and local honey, but cannot say i will go out of my way to visit. Many unique locally... More

A bit challenging to get to at night due to the dark country roads , but you will be delighted with the Well lit country market with a large selection of apples, homemade jams and pies. We started out with a hayride throughout the farm a bit on the creepy, cheesy side with some skeletons and scarecrow ghostly displays ,... More

Excellent apples! The honeycrisp is my favorite this season. Not the cheapest around, but the products are quality! The pies are good too! Bring the family and enjoy a day at the orchard!

The staff is great, the location charming, but oy, the prices. You can easily pay over $100 for Christmas tree and they grow their own. That said, they are one of the only places that have trees over 8'.

My 2 year old had a very dangerous experience today at the harvest festival. The site claims it is for ages 2 and up and on a Tuesday Morning I figured it would be a lot of small people out getting pumpkins and enjoying the sunshine. This was not the case. Apparently there were school groups there? Lots of older... More

My family and I go to Butler's annually for the past three years for the Fall Festivity and we always have a good time. It's plenty for the kids to do there and the food is pretty good too! The lines were long to get snacks and food. If you are thinking about going I say....GO! & see for yourself.

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.
