Shelburne Farm & Orchard
Other Ideas: Carver Hill Orchard; Parlee Farms; Old Frog Pond Farm; Hansonís Farm; Cider Hill Farm
You'll also enjoy treats like caramel apples, delicious cider donuts, hot mulled cider, cold cider, coffee cake, fresh baked apple pies & more in the country store.
The orchards are plentiful and provide an ample variety of apples like Empire, Cortland, McIntosh, & Macoun, to name a few. You can purchase either a 10lb bag for $17 or a 20lb bag for $25. Then you can set off on your own to pick your apples.
Weekend activities for children include Hayrides ($2/person), Magic Orchard Castle Moon Bounce ($1/per child), Cider Making with Antique Press, Pony Rides, Mini Hay Maze, and a Hay Climbing Mountain for kids.
The kids' ride-on area has a bunch of mini-John Deere tractors inside a hay enclosure which is fun and a cute photo-op. The mini tractors now have mini implements the kids can connect and haul mini pumpkins and mini hay bales around the ride area.
The jump house is a a great way for kids to burn off some of that energy after eating those delicious cider donuts.
You can also visit the farm's herd of farm animals: goats, sheep, ponies, chickens, guinea fowl, bunnies, and a Llama to stand guard.

A Great Treat - Apples And StorytellingWe went for the apple picking and were pleasantly suprised to discover the Storytelling in the Orchards. What a special family day. I'm told there will be more storytelling coming up on 10/4 and 10/12 from 1-3pm. This is not to be missed!
Great!We've been going to Honeypot for the past few years, because we didn't know the other orchards in Stow were more than just farm stands. Shelburne is great! It has a shop with homemade fudge and tons of different types of caramel apples (candy corn, M&M's, nuts, chocolate chips, etc) as well as cider and apples and cakes. They also have a huge lunch menu. They've added to their kids things - they now have a little tractor play area, a hay maze and a huge mountain of hay for the kids to climb on. They've also got all sorts of new animals! Give them a call, they're family run and everyone is really nice. BEST farm in the town!
Great For The Whole FamilyWhile it was extremely busy today as I am sure it was at every orchard around we found this place to be so family friendly. Our family really enjoyed this place so much that we plan to make it annual tradition to pick apples here. They have so many varieties of apples. Our son enjoyed the tractor hay ride and 'picking his own apples'. They had horse rides for additional fee. We feel this palce is definitely worth the trip!
