Love Shelburne! It's a great spot for apple picking, cider doughnuts and fun with the kiddos. In the fall they typically have a fire pit going and the smell of the burning wood while sipping apple cider is the best.

This orchard is not as crowded as others yet has events, good apple selection and entertainment. Fun place for family and couples. Navigating parking can be a challenge.

Came because I heard the doughnuts were good. The reviews didn't lie! I wish it wasn't raining, but we got a couple doughnuts and a cider, both were yummy. The drive there was beautiful with all of the trees this time of year too.

Not as quaint as many other orchards in the area. And a little on the expensive side. Not my favorite place to pick apples!

We had a whole time at this orchard picking apples and a 36 pound Pumpkin. The Apple Cider Donuts were amazing especially if you get them while still warm. All the staff was polite and very helpful and the apple varieties were almost endless. It's...More
