Stepp’s Hillcrest Orchard
Super busy day. A lot busier than I like but it was fun for the family. Perfect weather also. Very nice people
Great experience from beginning to end!! Went to the orchard on a Sunday afternoon and had such an amazing time. From the time my family and I pulled up and spoke with the first gentleman explaining where to park we knew we were going to have fun! My family and I decided to get a basket of apples from the orchard. We had two choices to pick from, stay near the parking area or walk across the street following the gravel sidewalk! We chose to walk across the street where there were plentiful amounts of apples! On this side we didnt see many other guests which was nice. Our basket was full of huge apples and we got some great pictures. We also decided to try some of the products the orchard had to offer. My husband got the Apple turnover and fried apple pie while I got the apple cider donut and slushie Boy, did we go back to get some for the ride home. After asking my husband which was better, he hesitated and said the fried apple pie, but they were both great. Cant wait to make this a yearly tradition! Next year we will bring our pup too
Greeted by friendly gentleman, who immediately showed us the "ropes". You can pick yourself or grab some RIPE apples from inside all ready to go. (Which is what we chose). Great farm, you can mix and match apples and try them all. Oh... and don't miss the apple slushy!!
This is by far the best orchard in the area. We've been to the others and though they 'look' nice, the quality in product is just not what it should be. One of the places is even selling their apples not fully ripened. Not so at Stepp's. The apples are fantastic! Just look at their orchards. I don't think I've ever seen such consistently healthy trees. Check the topsoil. It's not exposed and eroding away. They have grass cover throughout. That protects topsoil and keeps things moist. Great place! Lots to do and they care about quality. Thank you Stepp's
A perfect afternoon out. Very popular, but it wasnt crowded. They have excellent apple cider donuts and frosted apple cider as well.
