So many ciders!

Do the cider tasting! It's pretty inexpensive and good to share. The parking isn't great so get there early. Lots of apple varieties and great prices.

We try and get to Boa Vista Orchards once a year. I was especially looking forward to going with my family that was out visiting. They always have some good crafters out and the Apple wine is really good. I was looking for pumpkins to make pie out of and was thrilled that they had 3 varieties to choose from.... More

This one of my all time favorites. Wish I could travel there every weekend. Perfect for a weekend drive to get all kind of goodies. I have NEVER found better tomatoes anywhere. I also LOVE the fact that the Home Made pies are always fresh, and they have various sizes as well. If I had a choice I would go... More

This was the best of the various apple farms we visited today. Why? The prices for their items were the best we found in Apple Hill. They had a generous amount of fruit samples so you could determine which apples or pears you liked best. Although very busy (Saturday of a holiday weekend), they were staffed for the many visitors...

Boa Vista has a good selection of apples and usually other fresh produce. Of course they also have the pies and cobblers, but their real specialty are the myriad jars of apple butters, pumpkin butters, jams, jellies, spreads, and anything else you can think of. They always have a sampling table where you can try it all before you make... More

My family visited California from Indiana during our fall break. It was nice to visit a place in California that reminded us of the beautiful Indiana falls we have. The views were breathtaking with the mountains in the background. We enjoyed the market and all purchased some goodies to take home. The bakery was delicious. We had apple dumplings and... More

After visiting several farms on apple hill this was our last stop for the day. Doughnuts are disapointing and fruit is hit or miss. When you see alot of the produce has stickers on it you know it's not local. Vegetables are low quality and not grown by Boa vista. I also found the employees really lacking in personally, helpfulness... More

I like that they are open year round. Don't like that the produce is shipped in from the valley. Everyone assumes it's all local.

My husband & I stopped here for apple cider donuts. They were delicious! This place also has a nice and fairly large market for all types of fruit and vegetables, not just apples. They also have a nice patio/deck area overlooking some farmed acreage as well.
