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

If you're nar it in the fall do yourself a favor and go!Nice place to relax and take the family or go by yourself. Apple cider is to die for. Get fried pies and ice-cream. They offer other foods as well as jams and jellies, pumpkins, Hayrides (in the fall) Fun place and very pretty country

Jackson's Orchard offers wagon rides, hay rides and pick your own fruit in season. They have an excellent grill and have some great fried apple and peach pies. They also have great fruit, vegetables, honey and a large variety of jams and jellies. It is a very relaxing and interesting place to visit.

Don't bother with the hayride, pumpkin patch and corn maze, but the rest of the attractions around the barn are certainly worth the time and money for the kids. The food there is amazing - make sure you're hungry when you go! Great family activities.
