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.

Stayman, Pink Lady, and Granny Smith apples were only fair and overpriced. Blueberry preserve was excellent.

I love visiting this orchard, and I come several times every year during peach and apple season. My husband and I found this place 30 years ago while driving around with our children, and it has become a family tradition ever since. The family that...More
