“Totally awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

This was my family's 2nd visit t Barton Orchards for apple picking- there are other varieties of fruits & veggies that also await picking. An assortment of apples trees line the orchard. There are endless rows of them- clearly marked. They also have rows of eggplant, peppers(red,green,yellow) tomatoes, grapevines, blueberries etc. just to name a few. You can sign up for a tractor ride and of course their pumpkin patch is huge. They feature a decent variety of places to stop & get a bit to eat. There are farm animals on display, kids can feed some. Such a relaxing atmosphere. Their Live entertainment is always entertaining. It can accommodate quite a number of visitors & parking is free! Admission is very reasonable & a great time will be had by all. Kids of all ages will enjoy their visit. The drive up to Duchess county is enjoyable as the fall foliage is on full display- it is truly awe inspiring to see as you pass over the Croton Resevior en route. Really breath taking. Can't wait to return w/ a bigger group next fall.

“GROUP TOUR”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

this place is no place to go pick apples. I took a group of 16 and I wanted to pick fresh apples.
I paid for my empty bag $ 15.00 and the lady told me where to go pick. I only found apples
that had fallen on the ground. hardly any on the trees.. I went back and told her that. she said
I did not go to the right place. never offered to get an employee to show me where to pick.
the owner was very rude to one of my guest with me. I would never recommend this place to anyone.

“Great time for Fall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Lots to see and do with the kids. Free hayride, but bring your wallet! Petting zoo, and feed the animals. Cornfield maze, kiddie maze, pigs, alpacas, food!

“Off to the farm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

The farm is huge. I went on a Friday and there was a lot to do. There is even more to do on the weekend - hay rides, corn maze, farm animals, panning for gold, live music and pick your own fruit and veggies. There is no admission charge during the week but there is one on the weekends. There is a bakery with really good cookies, scones and doughnuts. They also have fudge, breads and other things. There is a market that sells local honey, garlic, jellies, produce and many other things. It is nice place to spend a few hours. Plus walking through the apple trees is great exercise. Also, the apples are so good. The only negative is having to use port-a-potties. But having a place to "go" was nice after the hour ride to get there.
