This place is darling and full of delicious baked goods.

On our recent visit, we were instantly smitten with their plethora of affordable baked goods, which are all freshly baked on the premises. From 11 Grain Bread (soooooo fantastic) - still warm to the touch, to soft Apple Cider Cookies with dreamy frosting, to sugar free

We took my daughter and her family here today. Me and my husband had been here before and enjoyed it with other family members. When we arrived it was pretty busy. We went right to do the outdoor stuff with the family. The play area with two slides and animals were a big hit. I loved seeing the old windmill actually working. We were ... read more

Every so often you come across a very special place and Covers is the real deal. From sitting outside eating a Rueben and listening to children's cries of joy on the children's train OR trying to decide on any number of insanely delicious items. Extremely clean and attentive staff. Go buy!

Cover's Apple Ranch is a gem hidden in the foothills near Sonora.
We had lunch there today, and the food was fresh and tasty, the people friendly and the prices reasonable.
I cannot think of a single place that better reflects the idea of "farm to table."

Could be better. The Ranch is too small and doesn't give the feel of an authentic Apple Orchard. One field trip and 30 mins is enough to see everything.

My grandma used to bring my cousins and I here when we were little. Fun train ride, petting zoo and of course yummy baked goods, pumpkin patch during Halloween also. I loooove the triple berry pie , I think that's what it's called. I'm sure they're all just as good though.

This place was just ok in my opinion. There was a lovely lady named Christy who gave our kindergarten class a tour of the orchards. Although I do not think that she had the wording or age appropriate topics that the littles could quite grasp. This not being her fault at all and we did appreciate her kindness. I think if maybe the chi ... read more
