We were undecided between Grandads and Stepp’s. They are really close to each other. We pulled into Grandad’s and left, because it just didn’t seem to be what we wanted (really close to the main road, very busy, smaller parking lot area). We went to...More

Dogs are allowed to walk through the orchard as long as they are on a leash. They are allowed in the barn where food and drinks are.
