“Overpriced but nice scenery”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Absolutely unreasonable pricing. (We went on 10/13/13) Costs $20 to buy a empty plastic bag that holds about 3 lbs of pick-your-own apples. We paid it to make the family happy and enjoy a fun time with loved ones, but still felt incedibly ripped off. Pros: nice location and cute on-site store that reminded me a little of Trader Joe's.

“Wonderful family activity”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We went apple picking here for the first time on opening weekend. Great time enjoying the orchard. After we were done picking we went to the store and picked up fresh apple cider donuts and apple cider to take home.

We have been back to take the wagon ride (great deal at 2.00 per person) and have a snack of donut holes and cider. My daughter (who is 2) loved the wagon ride and running around in the pumpkins.

Great place to go for a beautiful view, a tasty treat, and some fall fun!

“Great place to pick your own apples”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

This is a great place to pick your own apples. If you're not up to it, they have plenty of home grown varieties to pick from in their quaint store. The store also sells various other items reminicent of an old country store. Well worth the trip

“Our Family Tradition”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

This has been our family tradition for over 20 years. Fall is Apple and Pumpkin time and Blue Jay Orchards never fails to please. The cider is always fresh and good, The apple pie is great! Good specialties for those looking for tasty treats like apple butter, maple syrup, jams and jellies. Kids love the hayrides and picking pumpkins and apples.
