2014 SEASON UPDATE:
We will open this year, but the brutal Winter and record-setting monsoon-like Spring/Early Summer was not kind to our orchard (and many other farms as well). We do have apples on the trees and we will post our new hours/days of operation in the next few weeks. Thank you for your patience and we hope to see you in mid-September!
Welcome to Chicagoland's closest orchard--Heinz Orchard in Green Oaks, IL (next to Libertyville)! We are just 37 miles from downtown Chicago. Our no-frills Lake County orchard has been a favorite in Northern Illinois for over 50 years.
You are more than welcome to bring strollers and wagons into the orchard. Please note that as a small, family-run orchard we do not offer hayrides, food/drink, corn mazes, etc. We specialize in PURE APPLE PICKING FUN in a beautiful surrounding!
For the safety of our guests and the trees, please do
not climb in the trees, shake the trees or throw apples.
