The “Apple Pickin’ Jubilee” is this orchard’s apple picking festival, open on the weekends. Small children will especially enjoy picking from Hillcrest’s dwarf trees with apples hanging well within reach. Admission is $14 per person, which includes swimming pig races, apple tree maze, mini golf, wagon rides and cow milking. Expect to pay around $8 for a half-peck of apples. There’s also a variety of delicious food to sample. From apple fritters and apple pies, you won’t go hungry here.
