We enjoyed picking apples, the guided tour, and the store. It was a great experience. There could be problems with accessibility for the tour; call to verify if you need accomodations.

I absolutely love Apple Hill orchard. We have gone every year for 12 years to get our apples to make apple butter. The staff is always so helpful and assists me in getting the right kind of apples. And you will NOT beat their prices!
