We went two years ago, later in the season. If we had the same experience we had the first time that we had last weekend, we would not have come back.
I have never in my life seen lines like I did at Barton Orchards this past weekend. Even the worst at Disneyland does not come close. A lady inside complained that it took her 2 hours to get from the parkway to the entrance. Thankfully we did not have that experience with the traffic, but the lines inside were horrendous. And leaving, we were driving 40 mph and I clocked 2 and a half minutes of bumper to bumper traffic in the other direction for people waiting to get in. Not worth it.
Inside, more lines await! 45 minutes to get cold fries. An hour for pizza. 45 minutes for Apple Cider donuts, which were pretty much the only good thing there. 30 minutes to get a bag to pick apples (and by "pick" I mean take out of giant boxes they have since none of the trees had apples on them anymore). They had a lot of pumpkins, so there was that at least.
Honestly, do not waste your time. If you're driving from Long Island, go out East somewhere. If you're going from North of NYC, go to one of the many apple farms out there. You'll spend all day waiting on lines here.
