Sample the apples in the cool room and then warm up with a fresh apple donut. Actually, you may as well get several apple donuts because they're just that good. The garden grounds and koi pond are a great spot to take a load off...More

We make it a point to stop here every fall. The selection of apples is great and they gladly provide samples. The store has lots of other quality apple-based products. Outside there is a great rose garden.

One could eat a Honeycrisp apple and think, "There could never be a better apple," but the Sweet Tango apples at Fireside this year just might dethrone the Honeycrisps, they are that good. The roses are great again this year.

This is the place to go for apples in the fall -- and pumpkins, gourds, and cider. Fireside apples are the best - get seconds for extra value. Doughnuts and cheeses, too.

It's a nice orchards and gift shop place. It isn't always open, especially in the off season, but in the fall it is definitely a great place to stop for apples and apple products. plus a whole lot of other gift type things
