We have been almost weekly visitors to Jackson's Orchard for 30 years. Our garden plants and flowers come from Jackson's--one of the best selections of bedding and greenhouse plants and the prices are reasonable. We count the days until the first peaches come off the trees and try to be the first in line when they go on sale! And... More

Love to get honeycrisp apples and my husband loves to get their cider. We always get a fried apple pie and an apple slush while there.

This is a genuine family operated apple orchard. The folks here are friendly, informative and they have delicious apples. This is a must see if coming to the Bowling Green area. I always try to get out to Jackson's for the apples (Pink Lady is my favorite great for eating or baking) They also have cool iced ciders and a... More

Jackson's Orchard is a very busy place and a fun place for children and their families in the fall. Pumpkins, wagon rides, and numerous other things for a family to do. They have nice concessions and they have fried pies and Apple Cider. If possible visit during the week or early on the weekends, because Saturdays and Sundays are packed... More

Nice drive up the hill but you can find pumpkins much more affordable. Only go here on weekends if you love lots of kids.

Recently visited Jackson's Orchard which has been a family tradition in October for the last 10 years. We love this place and the family that runs the farm. It is THE place to be in the fall in Bowling Green so just remember that when planning an outing in the fall. BIG CROWDS immediately after lunch until about 4pm on... More

Before I get into the details of this review, let me say that I often review exceptional places we visit on trip advisor. In fact, I have just finished four very positive reviews. I can only think of one other time that I have gone to the trouble to give a negative review, and the situation was pretty bad. Also,... More

Very nice place to visit. Lots of things for kids to do with a petting zoo, hay rides, slides, etc... The place was packed on the Saturday we were there. Watched apples being sorted and got to sample several different Apple types before deciding what to buy. We really enjoyed the visit. Off the beaten path and very busy. Everyone... More

Parking attendant pointed for us to turn left and waved oncoming traffic into us at the same time. We would've wrecked if we followed his directions. Long lines, poor management, outhouses had no toilet paper and were full of waste! Pay extra to pick apples? Really? It's like Tom Sawyer! My friend had a birthday party reservation. The previous party... More
