Do you ship any of your products? (apples, cider, or donuts)
Sadly we cannot ship donuts, cider, or apples, we don't like that once as they are out of our hands we don't know in what shape they'll arrive. However, if you have someone in the area, they can purchase the product and ship them to you!
Do you have facilities available to rent for my company party, sons Birthday party, wedding reception, ect?
At this time we are not able to rent out our buildings or have parties on our property. May we suggest
The Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms in Rockton, IL, or Lockwood Parks' Children's Farm.

If you interested in a job at the Poplar Grove location, contact them at 815-765-2234.
Can we bring our pets to the orchard?
We kindly ask that you leave all furry friends at home for the safety of our dogs, your dogs, and our customers. We ask that you do not bring animals onto the property. If you bring pets in your vehicle, we are not responsible for any damage to your vehicle. May we suggest the Four Lakes Forest Preserve at 10207 Fish Hatchery Rd. Pecatonica, IL. if you'd like to allow your furry friend an outdoor experience.
Why aren't you open year around?
We are open during harvest season. We generally open in late August and close the weekend after Thanksgiving in November. We have to wait until the apples are ripe, we then pick them, make our cider, and then we can make my famously delicious apple cider donuts.
