While the initial Admission was expensive, it was much less than a $20-$24 band for an amusement park. There was much for our 4 children to enjoy, and they truly loved it all (ages 3 - 8). The negative here is food which was extremely expensive and mostly inedible. Save your appetite for a restaurant nearby and return later or just eat the very good donuts and cider and french fries. We spent 5 hours, and they wanted to stay beyond closing. I wrote a comment on their website re the food, but they edit all reviews, so I doubt I would find it there now.

This was the first cider mill that I had to pay an $11 per head fee to enter. The cost was the same for children over 3 years old so with a 6 and 8 year old, I spent a total of $44! All I paid for was so the kids could use a playground that could easily be found elsewhere. I was upset that they used kids for a profit! Not to mention too many rules to follow so the kids really couldn't have too much fun! If you are willing to pay $11 a head for the experience of a cider mill which you can get for free elsewhere, then more power to you!

All this place wants is your money - they don't care about you.

They charged my kids to go on a little playground - I've never heard of paying for kids to go down a couple of slides.

To top it off, the staff are rude, and there is no customer service.

This trip was a waste of time and money!

We were a group of 19 people, showed up on a Wednesday, the place was deserted, we brought our own lunch, was told were not allowed to eat our lunch on their empty benches. When we told them that we would buy 4 bags of cherries, they relented, saying that the reason they couldn't let us eat on their benches because they didn't have enough staff to clean our mess. We cleaned up after ourselves, while three of their staff was standing around chatting away. They watched the people picking cherries like a hawk. There are signs everywhere saying that you are not allowed to pick more cherries than the bags you bought from them. They treat you like thieves, like I am really steal $4 worth of cherries and put them in my burberry bag. We had to pay $3 per child to play on their playground. There was no supervision for the kids, so the parents had to supervise their children, the adults had to supervise their kids and had to pay for themselves as well. The $3 included a wagon ride, was told that there was nobody around to take the kids on a ride. When I demanded my money back, they relented. Surprisingly, there was someone available to take the kids on a ride. When I tried to round up the kids to leave, was asked if I had paid. I guess I can't even go in the playgrounds to get my kids. They were worried that a 43 year old mother of 4 would want to go on their slides and pet their donkeys. Felt totally unwelcome, and was treated like a second class citizen.

This is a great place to pick cherries and apples. We have had a lot of fun with the kids picking fruit, especially sweet cherries. They are a little messy but so tasty picked. Highly recommend!
