We didnt go to the orchard itself but stopped by their store. Is was a great country store. The peach turnovers were good as were the peanut candy and peaxhes we got. The owner was very nice. Will definitely stop there again.

Some of the best prices and apples I can find. Love the apple butter and other preserves. Best time to go is during their festivals, Apple Blossom Festival is the second weekend in April and their Apple Harvest Festival is the third weekend in October....More

I'm not sure if anything is happening at the orchard this time of year. The only event I recall is an apple festival.
