They covered everything from pioneer times to the last century with humorous and touching anecdotes. This is the oldest farm there and it is still family owned.... More

We always come up to purchase apples as well as some other fruit. The prices are great and the quality is better than some of the other places that we have visited. The most fun thing about Apple Hill is that there are so many places to visit that each time you come up, you can have a different experience... More

We always take visitors there in the fall. The family museum is so interesting of living and working on a homestead. Their pies are wonderful.

This family business is a great place to buy your apples and eat pies! Their location is near their large picnic area, so you can get lunch at Larsen's and kick back in the little park.
