“SLO Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

If you like tart apples start checking their website in July...worth it to go during the week when it's less crowded and you can taste all their seasonal apples.

“Very interesting diversion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2011

This place specializes in apples. What makes this apple farm particularly interesting is the fact they grow and sell unusual varieties of apples. During fall they have people in their gift shop that let you do some "apple tasting"...they have up to twelve apples on display and they give you a slice of each to taste and compare...from real tart to very sweet...from crisp to a little soft. The best time to visit is the fall, when they apples have been freshly picked.

The gift shop also sells other fruit that they grow and items associated with apples (apple cookbooks, apple utensils, apple-shaped ornaments).

The short drive to the farm is great...it rambles down a country road, passing farms and livestock.
