Everyone who lives within 100 miles of Uncle John's has probably been there at least once. It used to be a quaint apple farm where you could get great apple cider, donuts, and walk around. Now days it is over commercialized; everything costs money, and a lot of it for what you get. Don't get me wrong it's a fun... More

Cider seems to be low on their dedication scale these days. I've found the cider watery. Donuts are still good, but cider is what we're after.

Since our kids are grown and living away from home, it was nice to go to a cider mill again! We arrived on a weekday, mid afternoon during the fall season. It wasn't busy, but by the size of the parking lot, it must get very busy! Cider and doughnuts were great, you can watch the cider being made. This... More

My husband and I took our 4 year old grandson here on a Monday in October. Most attractions were open but definitely not crowded. The wagon rides weren't going to begin until 1:00 pm so we missed out on that - but the "jumping pillow" alone was worth the trip. There were only a few other kids there and there... More

Family or adult fun. Visit the cider mill and the bakery for fresh baked good and yummy Apple Butter. The adults can also visit the winery. I normally don't like wine, but they have a pretty fruit wine that I like.

The add stated free donuts and cider NOT so we even showed the ad on the internet site to the management they denied the truth of the ad even after having them read what THEY had published... More

This cider mill is great for all ages. They have lots of cider, baked goods, fresh hot donuts, caramel apples, and candy. They have a great play place for young children . The corn maze is especially fun. For the adults they have wine tasting. They even have a small craft store. And don't forget picking out that special pumpkin... More

We came every year as kids, and it has really commercialized since then. Nevertheless, they have a huge pumpkin patch and orchard, and the cider and doughnuts are great. They have a new play area for the kids that's a lot of fun, and the trolley ride is free. Fun, cheap, seasonal activity. And pet-friendly!

Fall activities, cider, corn maze, Apple shooting range, wine bar, amazing bakery, and much more... It's a fall must in our area!

Visited with three college students. Lots going on for all ages. Great cider and donuts. Apples to taste and take home. Pumpkins of all sizes. Gourds to decorate with. Free little train ride. A few things with prices (bouncy things and kid things). Hard cider and wine tasting. Pies!! Lots of yummies.
