All Seasons Orchard | Apples & Pumpkins – Woodstock, IL

When I think of fall activities, I think of apple picking, pumpkin patch, corn maze and all of the delicious fall inspired food and recipes! I also can’t help but love that I can have all of this and more so close to home.

Welcome to All Seasons Orchard | Apples & Pumpkins. Our family favorite for the past 7 years!

If you are a long time follower, you know my love for fall and all things apple/ pumpkin runs deep. But when it comes to fall activities there is no place we rather be than All Seasons Orchard.

I will let my photos speak for themselves but hurry and visit this orchard asap. Their honeycrisp apples are in full bloom and they are going like hot cakes.

Speaking of hot cakes, All Seasons has a great selection of good ol’ fashioned farm food! From freshly pressed apple cider, scratch hand dipped caramel apples, deliciously crunchy kettle corn and HELLO, the most decadent apple cider donuts you will ever have in your life.

TIPS:

– Get the COMBO pass. This is so worth it. Not only do you get to walk around the orchard, pick and sample apples, [honeycrisp are $3 extra pp] but afterwards the kids get to enjoy the Barnyard to the fullest. Corn maze, zip line, train ride, farm animals, jump pillow, duck race and so much more.

  • Additional charge: Pony rides, apple cannon, feed and pumpkins. 

– If you are coming with kids, visit on the weekends. No activities are available during the week.

– Do not leave without checking out the kitchen and the market. As I mentioned above, you need to try all of the fall favorites. Freshly baked and made on site. But don’t forget to pick up some local honey and a gift or two as well!

– Dress for the occasion. Check the weather for the full day as you will most likely spend an entire day here. Do not wear flip flops as the terrain in the orchard or pumpkin patch can be slippery.

– Bring bug spray. There are occasional mosquitoes so just be prepared.

– Expect bees. This is their home. They love apples and if bothered, will love you too.

– Try the apples. While in the orchard you can eat the apples but please be respectful. When you are done, toss the leftovers under the trees. This is so the bees can stay away from the main walking paths but also to prevent people from tripping and slipping.

– Be respectful. Depending on when you visit, there are usually crowds of people. There is enough space for everyone and enough apples and pumpkins for all. Listen to the guide and follow the rules, please.

– Have fun! Take tons of pictures, eat lots of apples, pick the best pumpkins and enjoy the time with your loved ones. If you haven’t already, make this a tradition just like we have. Hope to see you at the orchard soon!

Welcome to my blog. Here you will find a mix of food, life, fashion, beauty and travel reviews. Expect honest motherhood, fun family adventures and parenting fails. I can be sassy with a little bit sarcasm but all with good intentions. I love to cook, write and keep up with the latest fashion and beauty trends. But I am also a bargain hunter. When I find something worth sharing, I will pass it on. I have major OCD. I own 10 pairs of ripped jeans. I drink 3 cups of coffee every day. I suffer from chronic migraines and anxiety. I am a former photographer. Carbs are my life. I can watch a comedy and never LOL and I hate scary movies. I would travel the world but new places scare me. I believe in karma. My guilty pleasures include reality shows and cafes. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I love writing them! But don’t miss anything and subscribe via email and follow me on Facebook & Instagram ♡ Welcome to my organized chaos. X, Dijana
