Guides lead a team of visitors through the apple orchard, picking the ripest candidates from the ten varieties of apples available. Afterwards, they head to an old-fashioned cider press to make some take-home beverages. Visitors can also opt to head into the six-acre corn maze to test their navigational skills, and answer trivia questions––those who successfully answer all the questions will earn a patch, which they can pick up inside the store. Each customer will take home a half peck (approximately 5 pounds) of apples and a half gallon of apply cider.
Scott Wardell gazed upon an open prairie, and had a vision. He imagined a farm ––part orchard, part conservationist project––which grew fall fruits like apples and plums alongside the prairie's natural, essential hardwoods and evergreens. His vision became reality when he planted his first orchard in 1999, and he and his family haven't looked back.
Today, the crew at Montgomery Orchard hosts plenty of family friendly entertainments. They welcome visitors for self-guided tours through the beautiful prairie, and also invite them to come pluck ten varieties of apples––not to mention pears and plums––fresh from the trees during harvest season. After baskets are filled, they take guests to an old-fashioned cider press, where they can squeeze their own cider, which they can then take home or trade to scarecrows in the corn maze in exchange for a map to the exit.
