Really pleasant ladies working the counter. Always glad to point out what was recently picked for variety of apples as they did today. Can't recommend the apple fritters . Not sweet enough. Personal taste only.

We really enjoyed the time at Hillcrest orchard. You can't beat the price for all the activities. The adult size tricycles were a blast. The food and entertainment was awesome.

Only open three months a year, but boy is it awesome. They have petting zoo, pick your own apples, pig races, etc., but all I ever do there is buy apples. They have them in a huge container with the names on signs. You pick...More
