Really neat place to be in October-- amazing seeing pumpkins growing in the field (they also have apples) and petting zoo, maze, homemade donuts, gift shop, etc. But watch out- pumpkin prices based on weight and you might be in for a surprise.

This place has expanded over the years. It used to be a bit lower-key, but in the fall it becomes a place where lots of people come to do the corn maze, goat petting/feeding, pumpkin hunting, and apple picking. People rave about their apple donuts--they're good fresh but not some out-of-this-world good. There's a nice collection of home-made like products in the store. There are lots of things to do with kids. Buy a lot of tokens and just enjoy the time there. Parking is horrendous, but once you finally find a spot it is great to just hike along the orchard path and maybe even pick out some squash/apples. Worth the visit, especially if you've never been to it.

I was here with my grand daughter and I haven't been back. She enjoyed this wonderful place. The cider and donuts are so, so good. My baby passed away but I know that she enjoyed this family outing.

Bring the kids, or just go. It's a fun place! Lots of stuff for the kiddies to do, and a great selection of foods in the shopping section. I especially love the South Bend Chocolate Company assortment of chocolate popcorn, et al, but best of all are the apples! So many different species and so fresh right from the orchard. The dining area is only benches and long tables, but after all, this isn't fine dining. food is great! Only open I think from July through the fall.
