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.
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 12 varieties of apples—not to mention pears and plums—fresh from the trees during harvest season. The six-acre corn maze is divided into two halves, with one side being shorter and well-suited for families with small children, and a second side which is longer and will require more time to complete. A cidery/winery is also on-site, allowing adults to purchase a glass of wine or participate in a tasting.
