Edwards Apple Orchard is a fabulous day out, and has become an annual Autumn tradition for hundreds of people in the Northern IL area. Great items for sale, fun things to do with kids, great food (esp. the Apple Cider Donuts!!),terrific atmosphere, and the nicest people you'll ever meet.

Edwards has really done a great job of creating a family atmosphere. During the season they have activities going on during the weekends. They have a small restaurant, they have GREAT apple cider donuts. Lots of different kinds of apples and many many more things including fudge...

We love Edwards. They have great facilities for KIDS. The prices are reasonable. And we stand in line regardless of how long it is for bags of their donuts.

A yearly fall adventure for us. We come every year and allow many hours. The kids love the animals and petting zoo not to mention the playground. We, of course, love the apple donuts! So much to see and do. The staff is always friendly and very helpful.

Great place for kids and adults!! The play area is free and the grand children loved it. My daughters and my 91 year old mother enjoyed it too. It is a wonderful place for all ages. It is very busy on the weekends so I would recommend going during the week if you can.

Edwards Apple Orchard is one of the nicest orchards and family fun spots around. They have so much to do there, and for all ages. Apple picking, pony rides, shopping, and food! Love the apple cider donuts (amazing!) as well as the potato tent . . . now that is a "must have".

The free play area and petting"farm" are nice for young kids. The store is a bit overpriced. I didn't like that I couldn't go pick a smaller amount of apples.. (you have to get a huge amount) so for apple picking, we go to cherry valley. This is more for the play area and little cafe for us. Weekends are... More

You will be greeted warmly by this friendly orchard! Second generation owners treat you like family and you always get a smile from the employees. High school staffers often remain for their duration of school and many return after starting their own families. Warm and wonderful memories are a guarantee!
