to the extremely unfortunate customer below, just an inside view of what happened from an employee's view. i was told there was a power line that eated away its insulation and was arching at the end, burning its self away about 10 ft of line and it would've kept on burning until it go to the post and caught that on fire, causing all the rest of the power lines to burn and fall, possibly on the road. the fire dept shut us down even though our boss first told us to just keep going. also, all 60 or so actors (which i am one of), plus the managers and narators of the hayrides, lost around 5 hrs of pay due to the incident. plus it was one of the busiest nights ive personally have ever saw as the employees had to give up our parking spaces to the customers. so thats just a look at what happened from a different view and im sure the head staff at blake's would be sorry if they heard your extremely unfortunate story.

Well let me preface with I am from Toledo Ohio. Family and I went to The Orchard last night 10-16-10. The transformer out front blew before I could ride the hayride , go through the haunted barn , or even buy any doughnuts and cider. The only thing I got to do while I was there was give them the money for my ticket. Unfortunately do to the distance from my home I will not be able to return and use my ticket on another date. Blake's will not refund my money under any circumstances. After the power outage they pretty much told everyone to go home. No one directed traffic out, The parking lot was a catastrophe and there only response to any of it was sorry about your luck. They did say they would treat us real good if we come back again...... and I would return why ??? ever ??? Nope, I understand things happen, Its how a company deals with it when they do that creates their reputation. Well Blake's is nothing but a bunch of crooks with the way they handled this. I was a single visitor. I feel real bad for families that shelled out a $100 or more and were told sorry but you wont get your money back.

This apple orchard is a GREAT place to spend the day with family and friends. There is a small store and a place to purchase food for lunch. After lunch, go on a hay ride to pick your own apples, or drive your own car out into the orchard to avoid having to carry all those apples! There is a haunted house, a corn maze, a tire sand area to play in. There are animals available to pet, as well as a HUGE hay tower available for the kids to climb on. Watch for coupons in your local paper or inserted into those value paks received in the mail. The apple cider and donuts are the BEST! Have fun! Parking is quite spacious but I would go early. Seems to get very busy about noon and on. Prices are comparable to other orchards. Reasonable.

I enjoyed my visit. I went in October. Most of the apples had been picked and many of the remaining ones were on the grown or rotten. But it was still fun searching for a few in the trees. The apples are very sweet. They also had pumpkins and a hay ride.

The preschool my sons were in both visited this orchard as a field trip, and the kids all had a great time.

The main attraction of course is the apple orchard where you can pick your own apples. We go on a wagon and ride out, then pick as many apples as they can fit in a bag. The apples are delicious!

Another big feature is the animal petting farm. Kids from the suburbs like mine have often never seen a real farm animal like a chicken or cow for real. They have a great time petting the animals and feeding some too.

At Halloween they have a cool haunted hause and haunted hayride. We did it once but it was too scary for small children.
We also can pick pumpkins here right from the pumpkin patch, which my kids also love.

PROS: Pick your own apples, pumpkins, animals
CONS: None
