  • We had a lot of fun picking apples. The donuts were delicious. We bought some apple cherry butter. It's the best apple butter I've ever had!

  • A group of 5 of us went to Allen's yesterday for Apple picking, besides the weather being a bit humid, it couldn't have been more perfect. We all had an apple slushie, which were amazing!!!! We will definitely be back for the honeycrisps!!!

  • I went here with my 14 month old and some friends today. Very kid friendly, wonderful staff and delicious apples! The guy who did the hay-rack ride and narrated it, could tell he put lots of time into it! Very enjoyable place! Will definitely be going back!

  • Went here last year for my sons 4th birthday and it was so nice! Not too far from town, yet still feels like a great get away with the Family. We enjoyed picking the apples and eating all the special treats from the store!

  • The apple donuts were 2/3 gone by the time we got home, and my seven year old swears the apple slushies will "save the government." A great "date" with my little guy.
