Larsen's is a small farm with a warehouse full of their apples and other products, a little cafe and a museum housed in their large barn. The cafe has wonderful sandwiches, drinks and pies. Their apples are delicious, but my favorite part of their farm is the museum. They have all kinds of farm equipment, household furnishings and photos. My... More

This family business is a great place to buy your apples and eat pies! Their location is near their large picnic area, so you can get lunch at Larsen's and kick back in the little park.

Limited variety of apples but good prices. Bake shop is great and there is a picnic area with shade trees.

Larsen's Apple Barn has the best selection of apples in the Apple Hill area. Nice tasting area with helpful information. Excellent bakery with very tasty pies. Lots of parking. This is a our go to place for apples.

Liked the way this was set up...you could taste all the apples in the main barn and ask any questions...if you wanted to get bakery items, it had a separate building...and then for fun they has a history museum that was very interesting

We had been visiting several of the orchards and vineyards in the Apple Hill area and decided to make our final stop at Larsons to end the day with a fresh pastry. Unfortunately, the apple dumpling (which had a wonderful aroma when the sauce was poured over it) was extremely rubbery. Larsons appeared to us as a "larger" orchard in... More
