What a nice orchard! My family and I went on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend. It's never too early to go apple picking, as long as they have them! It was actually the perfect time to go because they had the apples (ginger gold, jonamac, gala, and honey crisp) and they also had late season peaches and nectarines.

We got there at around 10:30 and there were some people there picking already. Definitely go early because when we left around 11:30/12ish, it was starting to get more crowded. There is no entrance fee or parking fee, which was amazing and probably one of the only ones I found in the area that didn't have the extra fees. You just pay for what you pick and it's $1.69/lb, which was really cheap (cash only). They provide buckets but if you plan on picking a lot, I would recommend bringing a hand cart or wagon or something. Unfortunately, Hurricane Ida happened the week before so a lot of the apples were on the ground already but there were still plenty to pick. They say to call them after 4 pm the day before you want to go just to double check that everything hasn't been picked.

There's also a bakery down the road where you can get freshly made pastries like apple pie, apple cider donuts (although they didn't have apple cider yet), and lots of other things. They also sell fresh produce, fresh mozzarella, hot sauces, spices, basically all local products. That parking lot is a bit messy though because everyone wants to go there. But if you wait a few minutes, you'll get a spot since people don't spend long there.

We only wanted to do apple-picking and wanted to avoid the fall crowds, which is why we came so early in the season. But if you’re looking for the full fall experience, like hayrides, pumpkins, apple cider, October would probably be better for you.

It seems, apple picking is super popular this year. After visiting few orchards, I must say that few things about the Battleview make it my favorite. By the middle of October, many orchards are all out of apples. Not this one! Plenty of apples, which seems to be too much for the tree branches; 2 separate parking/picking areas on the way to the store; variety at $1.69/ LB... Parking by the store is a challenge, but we found a spot someone just pulled out off on the side of the road and just walked to the store. You can get the usual country farm store stuff inside or stay on a fast moving line outside to get some hot donuts. Pair it up with some apple cider slushy and it turns a great day into a perfect one. The store is filled with baked goods and accepts credit cards, unlike the orchard, which is cash only. There's still time for late harvest this year, we'll be back!

Battleview Orchards in Freehokd is great for fruit picking and for fruit buying in their store.

The orchards are nicely laid out. Easy to access. Priced reasonably. They have set up minimal contact payment for this time of Covid. As with all fruit picking, get there early for the best ones.

The store itself is very good. They don’t mark up the price much more than the picking price, which with some places do. The fruit pies and turnovers are wonderful.

A visit to the Orchards and the store is nicely coupled with a walk in the Battlefield State Park right next-door. And to make a really full day of it take 30 minute drive to the elegant beach at Ocean Grove just east on 33.

Try to go here to do some strawberry picking w family.
Very rude and arrogant person in the front entrance of the farm.
I was trying to get money from my cousin that’s already inside because you have to pay $5/person to pick.
This guy yelled at me and said go to the side and I was accused of trying to sneak in.
Later did I learn he is one of the owners.
Being one of the owners he doesn’t have people skills.
Will not recommend to family and friends!
Bad customer service.
Please take your business somewhere else.

We went for apple picking on a beautiful Saturday. The place was fairly crowded and there were too many people not wearing masks. Many of these people were there is groups and there was no way to avoid them when walking down the orchard lanes. What should have been a fun experience turned very stressful and we left with far fewer apples than I had hoped for.

Best apple cider doughnuts in NJ, and I've visited quite a few orchards! I love that you can get your doughnuts from a walk-up window (especially now with social distancing measures in place).

The country store offers everything you need from pies to farm fresh groceries to local products like honey, jam, and pickles. Wide selection of candy too!

Pro tip: Order lots of doughnuts, because you can't eat just one! Walk-up window is cash only; store accepts Visa & MasterCard.

First time ever hand picking peaches. It is a much quicker stop doing this compared to when you go apple/pumpkin picking. Be careful as you step on all the squished peaches. Filled out the experience by going in the store, which had a wonderful assortment of specialties. Store was set up and maintained nicely. Would recommend.

This is a large business which attracted a ton of people on Sat. Oct. 7th. We were amazed that after spending time with the crowds picking apples....when we drove to their bakery and country store there were no bathrooms. No place to wash your hands. Once you get cider and a doughnut there are no picnic benches or any type of benches.
They are making such a profit...can they not provide these basic things?

Every year since my children were young I would take them apple picking. Now my children keep that tradition and take there children. We have always gone to Eastmont orchards but they were closed for the season. We did not want to brake tradition or disappoint the grands so we though we would give Battleview a try. First the parking was horrible. No one was out there directing it was a free for all. The apples per pound were very pricey(if you could even find any) and the lines to purchase them were very long. I am not cheap by no means but the merchandise in the store was way over priced. The cider that I buy at a local store tasted better then the cider from their.

There is always something delicious here not just for picking season. This has become a weekly stop for produce and baked goods. Amazing every time. I need to move closer!
