It was Sunny and warm when we're arrived. We went directly to the orchard for apple picking. A tractor brought us to golden delicious and jonagold area. It's best pricy, $1.75 /pound but fresh from the tree. In the barn we tasted dip sauces and enjoy the pumpkin spiced donut.

We love visiting the Orchard - it's a fun experience for adults a kids. They had 2 corn mazes this year which was cool. The tractor ride was fun and we enjoyed going to the pumpkin patch and sunflower field. It's great to listen to the bands while sipping cider. And the shop is gi-normus and will please every critic. This place is amazing - the donuts alone are worth the drive!!

Every year we head to the County Line Orchard to do some apple picking. Most years they are fully stocked and the experience is fantastic. They do a great job of setting the "mood" with a large gift shop, delicious BBQ and a band that is playing upon your arrival. In addition to apple picking, they have a petting zoo and a corn maze - which is always a blast. It is the perfect place for an outing with friends or a day with the family!

County Line Orchard is a pleasant, family-oriented attraction where people in the Chicago vicinity can get a taste of orchard life, with the ability to pick apples in season, purchase apple-based products and souvenirs and simply enjoy a time away from the hustle and bustle of city life, albeit for but a few hours. If a person has a few hours to spare, the trip to Hobart is well worth the time.

Our family usually makes a weekend trip to Michigan to pick apples but we decided to give this place a try this year. County Line Orchard is a nice place but very crowded. All of the activities are very close together (except apple picking in the orchard) which places you in close quarters with people.

Apple picking is simple, ride out on the tractor wagon to the apple trees that have the apples you want and pick till your bag is full, typical of most u-picks. Apple trees were full.

The guy loading our wagon needs to take a lesson in friendliness; his statement of "sit down and listen to me" was a little abrupt and then he grumbled his way through the instructions of staying seated and where the apples would be. It is of course wise to stay seated on a moving wagon, but especially grumpy's wagon; the tractor driver was awful as he slammed the brakes on the tractor every time he stopped, passed another wagon that was apparently going too slow for him, and basically gave no information to the patrons as to what apples where available at the stops.

Corn maze is long for little ones; the staff said it takes about 40 minutes to do the big maze and 20 for the smaller, so keep this in mind when heading in with little ones who will want to be carried in about ten minutes.

The apple donuts, cider and apple butter seem a little pricey but they are all good, you will enjoy them. We did not eat in the "Kitchen" so I cannot review that part.

If you are looking for little fall fun, and u-pick apples, you will do fine with County Line Orchard, just have some patience.
