"Love this place
Stopping at Mercer Orchards is a must! There is a reason why it is so busy - it's well worth the crowds to visit. The land is beautiful, the apples are incredibly delicious and it is fun to try samples of various types of apples to find your favs. The store has so many delicious gifts (whipped honey, ciders, seasonings etc..) to check out. Their in house bakery makes incredible eats! Delicious apple fritters, fried pies etc.. Yum."
