Went during February so obviously most things are brown except the evergreens. Nice walk around the park, up the tree overlook with plenty of learning experiences along the path. Was there during the fall last time was it was amazing. Site also provides free tree samplings to take home.

Our family tradition continued in 2016! We love taking our grandsons (and their parents) to Arbor Day Farm. Our grandsons, ages 7 and 5 love the Tree Adventure. This self-directed and self-paced adventure in a great connection with nature. Looking forward to next fall!

This place is amazing! I have had the good fortune to visit in all seasons, and the experience has been stellar every time. Explore the trails and take the time to look for sculptures and art installations hidden throughout the woods. Play in the Nature Explore Classroom, no matter your age. It will put a smile on your face! Wildlife... More

Definitely worth the time to stop! Go on the tours and trails and don't forget the store and gift shop, or you will miss something! They have great pies and stuff you remember as a child (the smell will fill your head with visions of grandmother's house when growing up)! They have a zillion worthwhile projects, besides the millions of... More

Our daughter had come here years ago and had a good time. It was on our way back to Ft, Leavenworth KS from Omaha Ne so we made the stop. There is a slight charge for entry to the forest park and orchard. In the welcome center there is a large gift shop and a theater with an introduction video... More

Always a fun day trip in fall. Pick enough for pies and tarts and freezer. Wine tasting. Have pie to die for. Kids have a great Apple Adventure. Pricey. Your Morton home History history

It has a nice small trail to walk but nothing that I could not experience closer to home. It was picturesque. You would think the apple pie would be crazy good but it was very mediocre. The treehouse is kind of cool but that is about 5 minutes of your experience. It would be nice for a family to come... More

Made our annual visit to Arbor Day Farms earlier this month. Have been doing this for almost 30 years! Our grandson's love the Tree Adventure . . . . and so does all of us "older" kids. So much fun to see the next generation understand the importance of conserving our natural resources. By the way, the apple pie is... More
