Hastings >Afton Apple Orchard
HORRIBLE!!. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!! I went with my three kids to pick strawberries and were very rudely surprised at the price....$40 for two flats of strawberries!! These same strawberries I know for a fact could be purchased at a farmer's market for $8-$12 a flat. Most berry patches let you pick your own and you buy them by the container in which they come in but at this place they charge by the pound so BEWARE of how many berries you pick. AKA keep it to under a half flat if you want to spend a reasonable amount. What was supposed to be a family fun outing turned out to be a huge expense that left a very bitter taste in my mouth. We won't be returning to Afton Apples and I would advise others to search elsewhere for their fresh fruit and berry picking experiences as well. I would recommend "The Berry Patch" in Forest Lake.
Great Family Outing!. Great place to bring the kids. Abundant activities- great raspberry and apple picking, hay rides and great caramel apples! The previous reviewer about it being expensive is way off base. The $2 admission is well worth it.
A cornucopia of fruits awaits you..
Pick your own strawberries in the summer, then go back in the fall for bountiful pumpkins, fall raspberries (through mid-October) and, of course, apples. There's also a petting zoo and a playground. Apple-filled foods throughout the season include donuts, fritters, pie squares and frozen pies. Cider, jams and other locally grown foods are available as well.
Rip Off. I used to love Afton Apple. Unfortunately this year they charge a fee just to walk in the door. I think this is unfair and greedy. I will be looking for a new orchard for next year. Too bad, because they really had a good thing going. How on earth is a family supposed to do anything together? What about the people who can not afford this?
