When it comes to apple-eating in Holmes County, you can’t get any fresher than straight from the local orchard.
Hillcrest Orchard of Walnut Creek, which is family-owned and operated by the Merle Hershberger family, has 75 acres of orchard on which 22 varieties of apples and 12 varieties of peach are grown. We care for the trees, pick the fruit and prepare it for re-sale in our beautiful store, open seasonally from August through March.
The store not only has apples, but is packed with quality goodness in local meats and cheeses, a full line of fresh produce as well as nuts, candies and snacks.
Our own apples and freshly-pressed cider
During the fall months, you’ll find large displays of fall decorations, free samples of our signature fresh, sweet apple cider and a look-out deck from which you can experience a million-dollar view of the gorgeous Mud Valley.
Motorcoach groups are welcome.
Hours: Open August through March, Monday to Saturday, 8am to 5pm. Closed Sunday.
