Children can enjoy seeing the farm animals up close and go through the maze here as well as pick apples and pumpkins. We like finding new varieties of apples and treating ourselves to the apple drinks and doughnuts. The menu at their Flying Monkey Cafe is limited but the food is fresh and good. It's a pleasant place to visit.

Take the family for a great time taking pictures, feeding the animals and roaming the farm. That just gets you started! Their gift shop is chock full of home-made goods: jams, sauces, pickled vegies, fudge and more. Then there's the apples, peaches and vegetables in season. You can enjoy something different every time you go, since they have seasonal activities such as a corn maze, face painting live music, kettle corn, pony rides and more. Their variety of apples is second to none, and, depending on the month, you'll find a variety to your taste. They have a restaurant that serves lunch every day in Sept and October, and of course have all you'd want to celebrate the Fall season. Being a short distance off I-57, we stopped by for a short visit and were pleasantly surprise. It's a wonderful place for the entire family - bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the day. We give it an A++ and think you will too!

Curtis Orchard is a fun outing for late summer or fall. They have activities for children as well as refreshments for the whole family - don't miss the applesauce donuts!

My aunt and uncle took me in early November. Things were winding down. I imagine this would be a lot of fun during pumpkin and apple harvest times.

This is a neat place to enjoy apples & gourds being grown right where you can reach them. What my family loves is the apple doughnuts, cider & simply good food.
It can get pretty busy for lunch on Sundays.
