Looking for something to do one warm Fall weekend? Jacob’s Orchard is right outside of Mt. Summit. Jacob’s is a popular spot during the fall because of its excellent food, fun attractions, and overall wonderful and nostalgic atmosphere.

For those who have never been, Jacob’s Orchard is a family run apple orchard that sells apples, vegetables, and other such food. Apples are the main staple of the Orchard. Many different varieties of apples are sold with small signs beside them explaining the way they taste like sweet, tart, or crisp. Apple cider is also kept in refrigerators to the back, made from the apples that are currently in season. The most popular item at the orchard is the apple cinnamon donuts. These wonderful sugary beauties are made fresh on site, and free samples are often left out for people to try. If you can’t afford fresh ones, the bakers often leave day old donuts in a separate case that are much cheaper than the fresh ones. They also sell a wide variety of other things, such as blueberries, tomatoes, and even pumpkins.

Jacob’s has many fun attractions that litter the Orchard. These include a hayride, billy goats, and a play area. The hayride takes customers around the orchard, showing off the trees and the different varieties of apples.  Next to the hayride is the billy goats. Three billy goats run around inside a caged area. For 25 cents, food can be purchased and feed to the goats. Finally, last year the orchard added on a special play park for children and their parents to play on. This park features a play castle, playground equipment like slides and swings, and hay bales for children to play on.

Overall, Jacob’s Orchard provides a great activity for an Autumn weekend.
