We love this Orchard! When you pull in the gravel parking lot and leave your car enter the store (masks required in store). Towards the sides there are empty bags in various sizes. Choose your size and head out to start picking. This orchard has a wide variety of u pick apples, pears and blackberries. There is also a playground, jumping pillow, apple cannon and farm animals (you can pet and feed). There are only portable toilets, so go before you arrive. 1/2 pecks of apples and pears are $8. 10 shots on the apple cannon is $5 and a bag of animal food is $5. This is a great place to take pictures too.

We recently visited Justus. We went too late to pick, so we purchased already picked apples. The apples were delicious. However, the highlight was the fresh donuts and fried pies. The donuts were still warm. The fried pies were as good as my mama's used to be! For me to say that is high praise indeed. Already looking forward to another visit next year.

Highly recommend. Everyone was so nice and helpful. They spent a good bit of time explaining the types of apples and could tell that they really know their apples. The cider donuts were delicious and a must try. This was our first time to an orchard and I can't wait to go back again!

My wife and I drove up from Columbia, SC today. Been doing that for over 20 years, every year. Today the apples were $44 per bushel. I thought that was a little high but was told frost killed 80% of the crop, so I can accept that. Until I left and stopped by Grandads apples and they had more varieties and were $35 per bushel. Too late, I had already purchased 3 bushels from Justus. But then I got home, the first apple out of the bag was old. It was not crisp and juicy, but soft and grainy like it was months old. I'm not sure what's going on there but I spent over $130 on apples and they are not what you would expect from a place like this. Not sure I'll be back. If I do go back, I'll be doing some comparison before I purchase.

A beautiful location with a huge store, unfortunately apples were out of season and most display bins were empty. We did buy some jam, apple cider and fudge. Would like to return next year during apple season.

We stopped here just because we were in Apple country and we wanted apples. We found exactly what we were looking for in a wide selection of apples sold in all sorts of amounts, the opportunity to pick your own if desired, very helpful staff that provide suggestions and most importantly, provide an opportunity to taste all the apples they have to offer.

In addition, the Apple cider doughnuts are delicious—perfect to hold you over until the next destination.

Stopped by here to pick apples but it was raining quite hard. Picked up a bushel of already picked apples to take home.

Lots of choices, people were friendly and well organized.

Very kid friendly. Bring the family and enjoy a day outdoors.

To have a get away, change of pace, yet limit risk of exposure to covid [so avoided Labor Day weekend - potential crowds], apple picking is a great choice. I emailed numerous orchards trying to find an old favorite - Grimes Golden. A neighboring orchard let me know that Justus had them. It was a little early til their peak of ripeness, but it was now or never. Mr. Justus took us to the u pick rows in his golf cart & let us pick & try one right off the tree. It was wonderful, so we picked a 1/2 bushel. We also bought wonderful Honey Crisp and Galas that they had picked, also delicious. This could become an annual event for us.

We have been growing our Grimes Goldens for many years. There’s other varieties of Goldens that might be a little more pretty but none with the flavor that our Grimes Goldens have. Hopefully we will keep growing them for years to come. 🙏🍎🍏🙏

Our group of 22 enjoyed shopping here. They have a wide variety of apples.
They have jellies, apple butter, salsa, etc. They also have pastries such as apple fritters with ice cream. There was plenty of parking spaces

We stopped by here on our way home to Florida from Tennessee, and we are so glad we took the time to do so! Very helpful staff and the provided map was very helpful with identifying the available varieties of u-pick apples. We picked a lot of apples, then we headed down to the petting zoo and fish/duck pond. The catfish know you will feed them and go crazy! So fun to feed them. One very friendly goat came up for a treat, too. My 10 year old enjoyed both the apple picking and the animals, but the adults enjoyed it just as much! The apples are absolutely delicious, too.
