We consider this one of the best apple orchards in the area. In fact, my wife and I drive across several states each year to visit and get their apples. The apples are excellent in every way; large, juicy, free of insects and well stocked. Here you can also mix/match seconds for making jelly and canning. You’ll find many other... More

This is a good place to take the kids or grandkids in the fall. They have pretty pumpkins of all different sizes. They have hay rides for the kids. Also, I love their hot apple cider. I always enjoy going to Jackson's Orchard a couple of times a year.

Great little place. It was fairly slow the day we were there. Had some fried apple pies with ice cream. Very yummy! Purchased 1/2 bushel of fugi apples they are delicious! We were too early but the fall festival looks like fun.

Whether you come for the peaches or wait for the apples, you won't be disappointed! The staff is friendly & knowledgeable, the produce--ALL of it--is fresh & delicious and their hot apple cider served at the concession stand is to die for! Their apple cider slushies were good, too.

The orchard has become completely commercialized. While prices continue to skyrocket, quality of the products they sell and services offered have significantly depleted. The family feel and charm of the atmosphere here is completely gone now. Extremely overrated!

My family and I drive here every year in the fall. It's fair priced and family friendly. They have a kitchen set up that sells fresh cooked goods, all of the fall type harvest you could dream of and best of all lots of activities for the kids. They have a petting zoo, face paints, hay rides and bouncy castles.... More
