They are pricey for anything the children do. You have to buy a package thing and they won't separate. WE ended up walking out and going to another orchard

A Must Stop when in Town and especially during the Apple Season. So plan a trip to Ellijat and put Hillcrest on your list of places to stop and shop!

We make the trip once a year to the orchard. Nothing really changes but the imported apples, cider, and fritters are worth it. I suggest staying away from the food selection outside as the wait is always to long. The best thing is the staff...More
