Curtis Orchards is a lovely place to go. It is difficult to access for those with mobility issues due to parking spots, rocky surfaces and smallish aisles in the store. But the quality of produce, baked goods, and cider can't be beat there. The only criticism is that it is more expensive than other similar venues. But the staff are... More

Thanks for the 4 stars. We know the big crowds we get in peak season can be challenging for those with mobility issues, so we appreciate you still coming out to enjoy our place. We hope that the paved asphalt from the store all the way from the store to the activity area help. We're always looking for ways to... More

Curtis Orchard is great place to visit with family and friends. When the weather is nicer, you can handpick apples; select pumpkins; and more. Don't forget to visit the restaurant as well and make sure to try the apple doughnuts!

We visited twice this fall-such great facilities and charm! Love the playground and being able to pick your own apples and pumpkins! Pony rides were fun for the kids as well.

If you are looking for pumpkins in Central Illinois, explore other options, as Curtis Orchard tends to be over priced. However, the apple donuts and kid-friendly attractions are worth the trip.

Always appreciate the feedback, so thank you for taking the time to review. We do get the complaint once in awhile that we're over-commercialized, but that's such a generic term that we often wonder what people mean by that. If you wouldn't mind dropping us a line at admin@curtisorchard.com, we'd love to get your thoughts how to make things better.... More

I will always love the memories from picking apples and pumpkins in this family-friendly spot. I am a bit bummed that it has become a bit money-loving in recent years.

I'm referring to the freshly picked produce, apple cider, and Apple donuts/fritters. They are a must if you visit at any time of year. For families, there's a pumpkin patch, apple orchard, corn maze, tractor ride, petting zoo, pony ride, playground, and petting zoo. The restaurant inside is okay but not great. The activities and shop are the reason people... More

Curtis Orchard is a Midwest gem! A real staple for Champaign County. I've been visiting this family ran establishment for most my life. Even my daughter who went off to college this year came home and insisted we not miss going this fall to get apple cider and homemade donuts (which honestly are hands-down the best apple-cinnamon donuts ever)!

The orchard is beautiful and there are a number of really fantastic spaces for holding a variety of events. We held a fundraiser in their outdoor pavilion and got a lot of great foot-traffic. The staff are friendly and helpful, the owners are engaged and enthusiastic and were very supportive and accommodating. We had an excellent time and I definitely... More
