The flowers outside Apple Farm are beautiful, even with all the recent heat. Plenty of beautiful potted flowers, lovely. The food, however, was disappointing. The quantities were plentiful, the flavors were not. All the knickknacks in the gift shop were a bit much, but I...More

We've been visiting Apple Farm for years. There is a large gift shop area (lots of local knickknacks and American flag sort of things, and some foodstuffs), a nice outdoor patio, and lots of seating. The food is hearty, served in decently sized portions, and...More

They have hot cornbread that is our favorite. The salads are okay, pot pie is great as well as their Mac and Cheese. I really like their desserts. It's a great country atmosphere, and a great gift shop. We always buy cookies on our way...More

Food and staff are wonderful and worth any wait you may encounter. It doesn't matter what you order but the warm jam they serve with scones or on top of pancakes was superb (of course i bought a jar to take home).

Down home family food for dinner--meatloaf to fried chicken to pasta. The best part is the dessert selection baked at the on-site bakery--especially love the apple cinnamon tart.

My friend and I went here on the recommendation of a mutual friend. Our food was good but it wasn't good enough to bring us back any time soon. I had a tri-tip taco salad. The greens were fresh and the sour cream, guacamole and...More

Thanks for your question. Not all beef dishes are grass fed and organic. If you order an Apple Farm burger, the patty is grass fed, as advertised, but is not certified organic. I hope this answers your question. Hope you can... More
