Family friendly, great spot! This is a must do when in need of apples and family fun. This is a really special place to go in the fall to pick apples, enjoy the sunshine, and outdoor family time. The orchard is a hub of activity and there is a lot to see and do in addition to picking apples. Their... More

This is what apple picking in New England should feel like. Expansive orchard with stunning views of Champlain and the mountains beyond, ecologically friendly and very reasonably priced, this was the highlight of our Columbus Day weekend trip to the area. The staff we're almost unreasonably friendly and it seemed like it rubbed off on all of the other pickers,... More

Nice views from orchards. The apples were very good. Different types were well marked. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Not really the orchards issue but beware of entitled, ignorant people in the parking area.

Best apples in Vermont, beautiful location and amazing staff!!! The Orchard has many weekend events for all ages and types that should not be missed. In addition to the fabulous apple selection, make sure you try the apple pie and cider doughnuts, so delicious!!! Great place!

This apple orchard perched right on Lake Champlain is truly one of the most beautiful places in Vermont, if not the world. With views of the Adirondacks, this spot is an amazing place to go by yourself or with friends or family to pick apples while taking in a stunning view. The staff, especially proprietor Nick Cowles and his daughter,... More

Highly recommend visiting this beautifully situated property. I visited with a group of friends during Harvest and we had a blast roaming the orchard and picking apples. Finished the day off with a bowl of their famous Apple Betty. And such welcoming staff to boot!

We went apple picking before going to Shelburne Museum. The day we went there were McIntosh and Liberty apples available to pick. We picked 3 large shopping bags full! We also bought cider doughnuts, a gourd, and a t-shirt with a cute pickup and Shelburne Orchards on the front. The girl working the stand was very nice and friendly. We... More
