More than Apples

With a beautiful setting just north of Marion, Allen’s is the perfect place to experience a little taste of nature. Allen’s is a family-run orchard that hosts field trips, weddings, bonfires, and much more. Allen’s offers over 50 varieties of delicious apples that are available in various parts of the year. Take advantage of our “U-Pick” option during Open Season where you get to pick the apples you want right off the tree. Allen’s also has unique gifts, and scrumptious treats like donuts, turnovers, pies, and caramel apples!
