Pick your own memories!

Get a breath of fresh, country air while connecting with friends in the wide-open spaces at Apple Holler. On the 78-acre family farm, it is easy to safely social distance while having bushels of fun. Besides picking peaches, pears, and apples, guests can also stroll the picturesque rolling hills of our orchards and explore a breathtaking forest of 150-year-old oak trees, which is home to wildlife like deer, birds, and much more!

The magic of Apple Holler actually started thousands of years ago with the sun rising over the Great Lakes and the rich soil created by the mighty glacier. It’s the pristine water from the ancient Inland Sea and the magic and excitement in the air on warm summer days and crisp autumn nights.

You'll enjoy apple picking, farm tram tour, farmyard animals following a home cooked lunch on the Farm, shopping in the store.  Of course, there will be pies and cider donuts.

In our way home, we'll stop by a local bakery for a tour and sweet treats!
