What started in 1994 as a family project has blossomed into a local attraction for all ages to enjoy. Customers can pick their own apples, strawberries, cherries, peaches, apricots, and pumpkins. We also host many events such as our BlueGrass Festival (Labor Day Weekend), Hot Air Balloon Festival (usually the 2nd weekend in September), and Pumpkin Fest in October. Families can enjoy a bite to eat in our cafe or take home one of our signature sauces, jellies, or jams from the store. Local favorites from the cafe include hot apple cider doughnuts, homemade fries, and ice cold apple cider slushies. We also offer tractor rides into the orchard for picking as well as a playground and corn maze for the kids.

I am always looking for fun & different things to do with my love bugs (grandchildren) when I'm hanging out with them on the weekends. I happened upon Ditmars Orchard, from a Groupon offered for the wine & cheese tasting, also offered at Ditmars. Ditmars also has a vineyard. Upon further exploration, I learned the Orchard was open to the... More

An Adventure out on this chilly day, took us to Ditmars not far away. We sampled several tasty wines, (named after family members) then pared with a cheese tray as we settled in time. Ashley was a very informative gal, as we learned of the orchard and her family pals. The work of the land, and planting the crops is... More

This is a very good orchard. They have a gift shop by the entrance where you can purchase a lot of different items like apple cider, jams, jelly's, etc. They keep the place very well maintained.

We decided to visit to get apples and related products. The last mile onward, it was very dusty and unpaved. This added to the dust on the orchard premises. Thus, we decided against apple picking or any other activity. Our car got caked with the dust and we got itching throats, in spite of the windows being shut. Almost all... More

Had a superb hot air balloon weekend recently! Family fun. They have apples and have a small vineyard. They supply the local grocery store with produce and delicious apple and cherry cider. Ditmars has a small area where products can be purchased at the orchard.

We stopped here for pumpkins at the end of the day and found much more. One can buy apple butters, jams, and similar items as well as apples, pies, cider and homemade cider donuts (which were very tasty)! There's a porch in the back overlooking the orchard which looked to be a great place to relax with a glass of... More

Discovered this off I 80 and was delighted to find a relaxing place to take a break. I had a yummy apple cider smoothie but did not try the wines.

This is a great place to take your kids apple picking in the fall. We had an unexpected bonus during our visit. We had no idea the offered wine tasting. The gift shop was full of quality product that were made on the farm. I purchased the most wonderful candles their and can't wait to get more! Love it
