    There is so much to offer here whether you’re here on a date, with children or family members. The staff is so sweet and helpful and really help make the place very enjoyable. I highly recommend coming for the pumpkin picking, apple picking, fun music, petting zoo, rides and playground, corn maze, or just for the scenery! Oh, and the cider donuts are fantastic!! We’ll be back next Fall

    Let me start off by comparing the two years (in a row) that I’ve been here. I went to this orchard last year with only one child + 2 other adults and we loved it so much we came back. We got a 1/2 peck bag with our admission fee. It is a nicely spaced farm with tons of activities for the little ones: zip lining, cute little cow train, inflatable slides, jumping pillow, corn maze, etc. There is a pumpkin patch, you pay per lb. Did not do it either years. But this place does have good (hot and cold) apple cider, doughnuts, and doughnut a la mode (YUM!). Parking is free. They also have typical cafeteria food: hot dogs, fries, salad, cheese pizza, bottled water, etc. I would recommend you bring your own bottled water. Plenty of tables to sit and eat. Condiment bars are kept pretty clean and organized. Restrooms are relatively clean too. Port-o-potties are also available by the wagon loading areas. Be prepared to leave your baby buggy behind when going apple picking.I don’t recall the price I paid in 2013, but I now know why there were at least 3x as many people this past weekend as there was the year before. CBS promoted this particular farm (yay for the farm), thereby flooding it with people this year and (thanks CBS) diluting my personal experience when I drove 2 hours from my Lakeview apartment. This year, apple picking admission was $9 [without entry to the children’s play areas], you get 1/4 peck in this flimsy plastic bag- which they TELL you will tear if not supported from the bottom. If you wanted access to the play areas, it was $13.50 per person (on the weekends, $8 on weekdays) for a wristband. I understand you’re trying to run a business that’s only open a few months out of the year, but last year, we were able to walk out to each “ride” and I feel like they are trying to rob you at every turn. I honestly would rather pay $5 to park, than $4.50 MORE per person to WALK the play area. It’s not like I won’t buy your awesome cider + doughnuts. ***HELPFUL TIP: About the apples, where they drop you off, you will want to walk straight to the back of the rows of the apples you’re looking to pick, cause the front trees are usually picked bare. Jonagolds are similar to honey crisps and very good. They don’t brown quickly once chopped up, I like that. I personally liked these and their Golden Delicious (good for baking). They did not have any Fujis ready for picking, womp womp! =(This time, I went with 3 little ones (my nieces) and 3 other adults. Due to the price increase, only 1 of the adults decided to go in the play area. Now my question to All Season Apple Orchard is… since one adult went in to supervise 3 children, considering I did not sign a release of any sort, what if one of the other children got badly hurt? Your staff operating these attractions/rides are physically incapable of monitoring all those children at one time, so should my kids get hurt, can I sue you? I know what you’re thinking, well you should’ve paid the extra $4.50 to go watch your kid. But it’s NOT just about the money, it’s just the PRINCIPLE of it. Do you NOT want me to return next year? Honestly, from an child-free adult’s perspective, I would never bat an eye in the direction of this orchard again. My PSA of the day: KID-FREE ADULTS, take your date night elsewhere.

    I’ve been to LOTS of different apple orchards over the years, and this one is on my “definitely won’t return list.” We went there because it was a weekday, and my favorites weren’t open, so I thought we’d try a new place. BAD IDEA. First of all, you have to buy a bag for each and every person. A very small bag for $9 (weekday price – no honeycrisp.) The bag holds 4 pounds they say. The honeycrisp bag was $12 for the weekday. Then, if you want to go near the kiddie stuff (anything, even near an old tractor) you have to pay an additional $5 each person. Not just the kids. The orchard was disorganized with rows being closed on one end, but not the other. The workers didn’t seem to care or know much at all. I felt like I as being segregated since my mom wanted honeycrisp, and I didn’t, so we weren’t allowed to go in some of the same rows. At the end of picking, which was difficult since the apples were very picked over, and hard to find, I came across a pile of apple pickers. Sure would have been nice to use one to reach the apples up high, but the guy couldn’t be bothered to tell us they were there. And it really bothers me when they have a sign that says no tasting the apples! There are apples under the picnic tables attracting wasps, and again, the worker is too busy on his smartphone to pick them up and get them away from the tables. The indoor bathroom is disgusting and dirty. No excuse on a Monday when it is dead. The donuts are delicious, but $9 a dozen. The cider by the gallon and everything was SUPER expensive. I mean, at $1 for a bottle of water, you know a place is making a killing, so do you really have to gouge families and charge $2 a bottle?!? The parking lot had quite a bit of garbage all over. There are just too many other places that won’t charge you crazy high prices for every little thing or if they do, they at least care about their farm and keep it clean and nice.
