Beasley’s Orchard Insider Tips

This working, family-owned apple orchard has become a family destination in the summer and fall with an expansive market inside a Civil War-era barn, a u-pick area, Barnyard Bonanza children’s area and much more.

This destination’s popularity soars during the fall when it opens its corn maze, adds hayrides to the pumpkin patch, brings back its apple cannons and hosts the Heartland Apple Festival the first two weekends in October.

Insider Tips

Farm-Fresh Produce in the Barn

Beasley's produces and sells: apples, tomatoes, squash, strawberries, sweet corn, green beans, cucumbers, peppers, eggplant, cantaloupe, watermelon and pumpkins. All these items can be found in the old barn turned market which also houses the apple production and the cider mill.

More Barn Finds

To say Beasley's market is just about fresh apples and other produce would be doing this wonderful shopping experience a disservice. Their market is also filled with jars of freshly-made jams and jellies, gluten-free black bean dip and salsa con queso, Amish-made popcorn, homemade honey and much more.

Barnyard Bonanza

This expansive children’s play area includes a ball zone where they can pitch baseballs, throw footballs and shoot basketballs, a spiderweb rope climber, an enormous inflated jumping pillow and more.

U-Pick Apples

Beasley’s has a dedicated area of their orchard available to the public to pick their own apples right off the tree from Labor Day Weekend through Oct. 31.

Amazing

Beasley's popular corn maze usually opens on weekends around mid-September through the end of October. The maze is, well, amazing...it's almost 8 full acres and features more than four miles of trails. The detail of the maze changes every year with a different theme and truly is a work of art. It's always fun and something of a challenge.

Fall Fun

I can't believe it took me this long to mention what Beasley's Orchard is perhaps best known for: The Heartland Apple Festival. This annual fall tradition brings in visitors from across the region and is held over the first two weekends of October every year. It includes numerous kids’ activities, live music, food, arts and crafts vendors, wine tastings and more.

Festival Tip: Save $ with a Kids Pass

The Heartland Apple Festival is a child's dream with a giant hay mountain, Kids Zone with all kinds of inflatables, face painting and more. But make sure to buy kids passes for all the activities, and you'll save a few dollars compared to purchasing the activities separately.

Festival Tip 2: Climb on the Hayride

If you want to get some of the best pumpkins you'll find anywhere, it's worth the time to climb on one of the hayrides that Beasley's offers out to their pumpkin patch during the Heartland Apple Festival. Once you're there, you'll have the opportunity to see - and pick - pumpkins that come in all sizes. They even offer a variety of pumpkins outside the market if you don't want to make the trip out to the patch.

You Must Try

Two things you must experience at Beasley’s is their award-winning apple cider and their apple cannons. Each offers their own brand of pure enjoyment.

Other Events

Other events you will want to consider attending at Beasley’s Orchard include:

Dog Daze at the Maze

Usually held the final weekend in October, this weekend is dedicated to the dogs with costume contests, dog-related vendors, pet adoption and more. Bring your pooch out for this one-of-a-kind, dog-friendly event.

Christmas at the Orchard

Bring the kids to get pictures with and talk to Santa while checking off some of your holiday shopping all in one place.
