Any visit to Gays Mills, WI is not complete without a stop at the Sunrise Orchard. The views are amazing from the top of this ridge location. Sunrise has the most amazing shop, that they seem to keep improving and expanding each time I visit. The apple cider donuts are the best!

Although the maple leaves have dropped, the oak trees were blazing in reds and browns. Sunrise Orchard had a few other shoppers, but we had lots of... More

We stopped on a quiet weekday morning, so our experience was a bit different from other reviewers. The area surrounding the orchard was beautiful. The shop itself had so many fun things to buy. Fresh apples, frozen pies, relishes, mustards, and on and on. The apple cider donuts had good flavor and the hot cider was delicious. Definitely a fun... More

This is a great Sunday drive for Honeycrisp apples! Also picked up some apple cider donuts! This is always a nice operation with a lot of items to choose from. They even have a newer area for the kids to play! This is a great tradition every fall!

Called early Sept. & was told the honey crisp would be ready on the 9th. We made the trip up from Iowa on the 14th & none was available. Went to a different orchard to get them. Bummer.
