Great place to visit and learn. The staff is friendly and knowledgable and always courteous!

Jody - Omaha

Love all the foods, wish I could do u-pick more frequently through the growing season because it’s worth it to spend more on good local produce!

Bruns - Omaha

Wonderful stop for anyone…families, seniors, couples, singles! Vineyard and fruits…ready to go or pick ur own. Highly endorse!

Bill - Lincoln

Really interesting place. Apples, jams, and even wine. Purchased a bit of everything.

Ken - Grand Island

Great place! Love the hayrack ride out into the orchard. Amazing, fresh apple cider and apple doughnuts! Family oriented and friendly staff. One of my favorite places to visit in Nebraska City.

Kaelie - Nebraska City

Great place for blackberries/apples/peaches/pears. The apple donuts are excellent. Stir fry sauces, cherry and apple cider and frozen cherries! A fruit lovers dream.
