We stopped by on a Saturday afternoon with our teenage son. He wanted some big Honeycrisp apples and was not disappointed! Lots of things to choose from: different apple varieties, apple butter, jams/jellies, candles, etc. When getting a gallon of fresh cider from the fridge, I noticed bags of pitted sour cherries and snapped up 2 bags. Way less expensive per pound than those we get at our farmers market and we have to do the pitting! Staff scattered around were friendly and able to answer questions, but kept their distance. Mask wearing and touch less checkout.…

Excellent place for picking great apples. Even my little two year old granddaughter was able to pick. Staff was very polite and helpful. Grandkids had a ball picking apples, going through the corn maze, walking through the pumpkin patch and then feeding the animals. Price was very reasonable. $3/ person, children under 3 free, seniors free. That included apple picking, corn maze and animal feeding. Free apple cider to taste. It was buy three bags of apples and get one free. My son accidently picked 9 bags instead of 8 and they told us to just take the extra bag. If I lived closer (we are from PA) I would go there every year to get my Cortland apples.…

We stayed 5 days in South Haven and my daughter-in-law selected this orchard because of the animal attraction. Our 3-year old grandson LOVED feeding the goats, and alpacas. He also really enjoyed the playground where he climbed all over the John Deere wooden tractor. We picked a few plums, pears, and early apples. Kim, who introduced herself as the owner, could NOT have been nicer. She shared personal stories with us, the history of the orchard, and made us feel like welcomed guests. We sampled the made-fresh donuts - delicious! We visited in late August so the apples were just ripening and most weren't ready for picking. We'd love to return and pick when the apples are ready for harvest. There are obviously lots of orchards in the area. I highly recommend this one because of the personal touch and friendliness of the owner and staff…

Went to visit but was closed and the only people around was the neighbors. Was really looking forward to picking fruit.

Brought our family from Chicago and after looking at dozen of apple orchards online I’m happy we chose this one. Farm was very cute and kids had a great time picking apples. Workers were very friendly, definitely will come back again.
