Our orchard has a large selection of the typical apple varieties as well as several antique apples. A favorite of the kids has been our U-pick pumpkin patch and creative pumpkin wagon design at Halloween time. From the bakery are applesauce donuts and a much demanded line of hand-rolled homemade pies. The crusts to the fruit fillings are all made like Melissa’s grandma used to bake. Some secret family recipes are sure to tempt even the most die-hard dieter. Apple cider is pressed several times a week and is known throughout the area as some of the “best cider” available. The orchard has been owned and operated by John and Melissa Marvin and their four girls since 1985. It is truly a “family experience” where the customers are more like “friends”.
