The calendar has rolled into September, which means it's time to celebrate many midwesterners' favorite season! This fall, make a trip to Royal Oak Farm Orchard! Royal Oak is a u-pick apple orchard located in northern Illinois near the Wisconsin border in Harvard, Illinois. This property is expansive and lovely, making it the perfect place to bring the family for some seasonal fun. This orchard is special because even on their busiest days, the vastness creates a sense of solitude so you can enjoy the company of your family.


After admission into the orchard, you’ll enjoy a wagon ride which takes you back to the apples! There a lots of varieties here, including McIntosh, Cortlands, Ginger Golds, and everyone’s favorite, Honeycrisps! Pick to fill your bag, then head back up to rest of the action. There’s plenty more to entertain everyone in the family. Wander through the Amaze ‘N Apple maze, browse the harvest barn, or enjoy a meal in the Country Store.

No matter how you choose to spend your time here, you’ll have a enjoy yourself and, best of all, you'll come home with some delicious apples!
