We visited for a half hour or so and were amazed at all the apple varieties for sale- never heard of most of them before! Great cider. Cool collection of vintage signs and pop bottles. Not much to do there; it's not a full blown tourist trap.

Saw this online before heading to the Christmas Cove Farms. The apples are wonderful and the family stayed open a few minutes after closing to help us make our selection of apples.

Great place! A huge variety of apples are available, with placards telling the origin and history of the apples. The bottle and sign collection is also a must see. Great tasting apple cider as well. Perfect for a fall day in Michigan!

We had to check this place out after reading about it on Trip Advisor. It was truly unique. A lot of bottles, potato chip and lard tins and apples! It was fun to read about the origin of the different types of apples and to try some new ones I had never heard of. Definitely worth a stop!

A wonderful fall destination. This farm cultivates obscure and antique apples. They have more apple varieties to choose from, than most places have fruit. Delicious and entertaining.

Yes, they sell apples. If you want apples, it is a great place to go. BUT, even if you hate apples, this is a place worth a drive to see. We drove up from Traverse City to see the place. As other reviewers have exclaimed, his POP, a.k.a. SODA (depends on from what part of the country you come) bottle... More

Even if you are not an apple fan, the display of 10,000 pop bottles is jaw dropping! There were free apple samples to taste. The owner had great recommendations for varieties to try when I told her which were my favorites. I was unfamiliar with antique applies and I learned a lot. Great place!

That's what the sign says out front. If the names Pearmain, Pippin, or Northern Spy get your tastebuds tingling, this is the place for you. This family raises more than 200 varieties of apples, many almost gone from North American orchards. Lots of them are winter apples, so come in October for the best assortment. The showroom (actually a barn)... More

So many historic apples and so many different flavors of apples. Loved the banana flavored apple.

If you are anywhere near Northport Michigan during the apple season, don't miss John and Phyllis' apple farm. They grow 200 varieties, many antique heirlooms from around the world that are suited to the cooler climate. When we were there they had about 70 varieties on sale, most with brief descriptions of the apple's history. Needless to say John is... More
