“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

My family and I got to pick our own Ginger Gold and William's Pride apples today. The price was $10 for a U-pick bag or $9 each for two or more bags. We were also able to sample the apples so we could pick which apple we would like to pick more off. I thought that was very nice of them to offer samples. There is also a small petting zoo with a miniature horse and some goats and chickens. I would absolutely love to come back and pick apples here next year. It was not crowded at all. The apples are delicious!

“Want the best HONEYCRISPS ever?!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

I've been going to Curtis Orchard for 15 years now. It's grown a lot, but still has a nice down-home feel.
In college I went with friends. I've taken grade school classes there on fieldtrips. Now I take my toddler there to play. I could recommend the corn maze and visiting the goats. I haven't gotten to some of the newer activities, but I will when my boy is older. The gift shop is really nice. We visited the pumpkin patch for a few years - go in early October!
Starting this month, however, I will be going there weekly for some incredible HONEYCRISP apples! I completely snub the grocery store apples for these babies. I counted the bag once, and it came out to about $1 per apple. Totally worth every penny!

“Great Place to Enjoy the Fall Season”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Curtis Orchard is a great place to enjoy the Fall season. We have visited several times to pick apples and pumpkins. I would definitely recommend purchasing some apple butter, apple donuts and fresh apple cider! They are staples in our house during the Fall.

“Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great place to spend the day with the kids. Lots of fun stuff to see and do. This is often a destination location for school groups, scout troops, etc. Not only do you get to search out the perfect pumpkin in the fall, but there are apples of almost every variety, including the so delish Honeycrisp, my absolute favorite. Can't ever go there without taking home some of the fresh apple donuts either! The apple cider is the best cider I've ever tasted.
