I'm originally from Roscoe and have been going to Edwards since we moved to the area in 1980. Now my husband and I drive up at least once every season from Chicago to take our two young sons to enjoy what has become a family tradition. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

It is a family tradition every fall to visit the orchard. We are from Loves Park and we love spending the day with the kids letting them play, pick apples, shop and eat your delicious treats. Best of all is the donuts! We have many memories and pictures of our trips and I hope to continue many more years to come. Best wishes to your family and the long road in front of you and I hope to see you this fall. I know that you will overcome this tragedy and be the best apple orchard that we all love.

Dear Barb and Ken,
Just a note of concern and also relief that there were no major injuries yesterday. Our prayers are with you and your family and we hope you will be able to rebuild.
We always have enjoyed the cider and doughnuts that my folks would bring down to us when they visited before they retired, and the few trips we made up there when our girls were small.
Sincerely, Joe & Janet McLay

I couldn't believe my ears and eyes when I heard about the devastation caused by the tornadoes. I actually worked there as a teenager way back in the late 70's! I remember Barb and Mike (sorry I can't remember all of you Edwards) and my heart goes out to you. You will be in my prayers!

Our family has been going to Edward's Apple Orchard every Fall for over ten years. It is a place we all enjoy going very much. We are very thankful that no one was hurt in the tornado. If there is an opportunity for pulic help in rebuilding, we would love to help!

Good Luck and God Bless!

As many people have expressed, Edwards Orchard is a long standing tradition each fall. It was sad to see the damage that happened yesterday but I am so happy to hear that no-one was hurt and the orchard trees were spared. I have great confidence that things will be rebuilt and if you are looking for help please let the public know so we can pitch in also. I live about 20 miles away and it is never fall until we come and visit your place. Thank you!

As a child I cherished our trips to the orchard. There hasn't been a year in my memory that hasn't included a visit to Edward's. If the orchard needs community help to rebuild, I will be there helping any way possible. I look forward to taking my children again, and again.

I've been all over the U.S., and several places around the world, and I cannot think of a better family place for the Fall. Our family would be very sad indeed if we had no Edward's Apple Orchard in the future. Many, many great memories in just the couple of years that we've been going. We visit a few times every week during the season. Ironically, my wife and daughters ate the last bag of donuts that we had frozen just yesterday. Our prayers are with you, and we will help where we can.

I was reading the previous post and there was a mention of someone helping if there is a rebuild effort well that person has brought forth a great Jaycees project and we can use the communities help. Lets work together to rebuild Edward's Apple Orchard making it better and maybe even bigger then before.

I hope that you can rebuild your dream from the tornado today. My family visits you every year and look forward to your annual newsletter. I am glad everyone is safe...including the dog. I hope that all the annual visitors will be able to enjoy your awesome orchard again this fall. I truly sorry for your loss. If there are community wide rebuild efforts, I would gladly help.

The Orchard will be able to come back as I heard it was destroyed by the tornado that hit Poplar Grove today.

Hopefully everyone is okay and everyone is safe.

What a surprise. Today, 11-07-2007, my wife and I went to Edwards for a few apples. We bought some red delicious and granny smith apples. The granny smiths were great. The red delicious were terrible. They must have been picked years ago as they were as soft as apple sauce. Either maybe they were shipped in or were not stored properly. I have had apples from here before and they were crisp and tasty, but not this year.

I am in my forties now and I started going to Edwards for school field trips. To me, it is the ultimate apple orchard experience, and now that I live away from Poplar Grove, I get homesick for Edwards every October! I have lived all over the US, and this is hands down the best. I took my kids there, foreign visitors there, friends from Chicago and further afield there -- all of them raved about those fabulous cider donuts and the cider and the apples...

Poplar Grove has changed to accommodate the crowds that flood Edwards every fall - try some of the other wonderful farm-oriented attractions nearby, like the Pumpkin Patch or Lane's or the Wings and Wheels Museum.

Each year the orchard gets better and better. Prices are very reasonable and they've managed to grow gracefully to serve their never ending customer base. Employees always have a smile for you, no matter how crazy it is out there. Barb, Becky and Suzi are always so cheerful and whether they really remember me or not, they always make me feel like I'm their favorite guest. Too bad they couldn't be open longer...

I am 18 years old and have attended the Apple orchard for 18 year never missing one even as a baby. This place is a comfy little family owned orchard/tourist attraction. Kids always seem to have a blast. And everyone has to ring their bell at least once. It sets off the trip. This year I will be taking my boyfriend and introducing him to the family tradition. The cider, the donuts, the apple butter, delicious apples, and the amazingly tasty raspberries. completely recommend it for a perfect family outing to set of the fall season in spirit.

we just visited this orchard this past weekend...there is plenty to do there and the kids had a ball. The pony rides are now 3 bucks a kid and the wagon rides I believe are also 3 bucks a person so it can get expensive but there is enough to do that you do not need to pay for those things.

go you will enjoy it.

I love love love this apple orchard. I make the effort to go several times during the season. The cider donuts and the homade fudge...to die for. Never is there a shortage of things to do. There's a petting zoo,play ground,mini maze fort the young ones,pony rides, and horse drawn wagon ride. Then there's the gift items and gormet food items...YUM!!! If you have a chance make the trek. I promise you will not be sorry. Dont forget to pick your own...apples, raspberries, and even pumpkins when is season.

PROS: Lots to do at reasonable prices, Very family oriented
CONS: A little tight on space for wheel chairs.

We live in Wisconsin, but we make sure whenever we are in the area visiting family we stop at Edwards. The apple cider donuts are to die for. Great entertainment for families.

We have made Edward's part of our fall family tradition for the past 7 years, and plan to for years to come! We spend a afternoon picking apples, walking visit the petting zoo and the kids ride the ponies and the wagon ride. Their selection of specialty foods and snacks is wonderful (and we always love the samples of everything) No trip is complete without a dozen of their apple cider donuts! And this year we even tried their "pick you own pumpkin" and that was an afternoon of fun too! I am lucky that we live close enough to visit often on the weekdays, it does get crazy there on the weekends! It is definately worth the crowd though. We have friends who drive all the way from Naperville every year to spend an afternoon at the orchard with us!

PROS: Fun atmosphere, delicious apples (and DONUTS!) so close to home.
CONS: The only con is the crowds! It's still worth it though!

Plan on spending the afternoon at this orchard as there is lots to do. You can take a hayride, visit the animals at the petting zoo, pick your own apples, pumpkins, and raspberries. The food is very tasty, particularly the pie and warm cinnamon and cider donuts. Don't forget to visit the store.

PROS: petting zoo is free
CONS: very crowded the first few weekends after opening for the season

This year was the first year that I was able to go to the orchard since I moved here 5 years ago. I wish I would have gone sooner. The location is great. The gift shop resembles the one in Cracker Barrel. You can watch the cider being made, as well as select pecks of freshly picked apples, get fresh, warm donuts (my favorite), and carmel apples. Totally worth the drive out of town. Try the Honey Crisp apples.. simply unreal.

Great shop out in the middle of nowhere. You'll find fresh fruit in season and lots of gift items. There is even a petting zoo in the back for the kids. If you go, make sure to visit the lower level for the apple pie. It is the best I've ever tasted. You can have it heated with cheddar cheese, ice creame or both! If you go, take cash or checks as they don't take credit cards. However, they do have an ATM right there.

This is a local fall-time family tradition. You just can't beat a trip to Edwards. Do not leave without eating an Apple Cider Donut! Trust me! You can pick your own apples, or just buy by the peck. They tend to be more than the grocery, but the experience is worth it. The Honey Crisp apples are the best and go out early. Tends to be crowded on weekends, best to take an afternoon off!

PROS: FUN for the whole family
CONS: Crowded weekends

We always look forward to fall, and our family visit to Edwards Apple Orchard. Their apples are always fresh, and the apple cider and apple cider donuts are a must. In the Apple barn you can watch and see how the cider is made. They also have a small farm museum, pony rides and hay rides out to pick your own apples. Its a great fall tradition that we always look forward to and are never disappointed. Be sure and try to visit during the week, as weekends can be very crowded.

PROS: Smells great, tastes even better
CONS: Can be crowded on weekends
