They have even inspired me to recreate these ... read more

This place is such a cute stop! The train ride was awesome for my 3 kids, it went around the ranch a couple times too. The playground was fun for them as well and seeing the animals. My favorite is the sweet shop inside with all the apple goods! We tried the cookies, the mini cinnamon rolls (they were decent) but the apple cider was ... read more

Visited Cover Apple Ranch with my Girl Scout Troop yesterday afternoon.   Our tour guide was Alan.  He was very informative and the grounds were well kept.  The tour included a brief view of the orchard with information RE: the different types of apples Cover grows.  We then watched Alan use a machine to core, slice and cut apples al ... read more

Cover's Apple Ranch is a great place to visit. It is very family friendly with plenty of parking. They have a big selection of pies available whole or by the slice. They feature a lot of deserts made from apples from pies to breads and much more. The apple cider is great. I also love the dehydrated apple slices. They have a small re ... read more

We love going to Cover's Apple Ranch.  Their breakfast and lunch food is really good and freshly made.  But of course I'm in love with all their bakery goods; especially their snickerdoodle cookies.  Very good jams, jellies and fresh vegetables.  It's a great place to take the whole family.....children's zoo, train rides and picnic p ... read more

I love visiting Covers, great family experience.
Heather Leslie-Henderson via google.com - Apr 5, 2019
The food is really really good, but I worry about the animals there. They look fed and taken care of I guess, ok.. but their living quarters are sub par! And what's with the duck pond. Seriously???!?!?! Seriously?!?! Cage and wire, no dirt. No grass.. pathetic! Just flat out sad! Take better care of your livestock! :( ... read more

There is no comparison locally when it comes to their baked goods. I cannot overstate that fact. There's a fun train ride and cute playground. Overall a sweet little spot to take your family and good place to create memories with your kiddos.

Took the kids to covers for a treat based on the yelp reviews and was so pleasantly surprised to find a working scaled model train we could ride! This place is  such a hidden gem. I think it may be a seasonal thing so call ahead!

The food is amazing, although takes quite a bit of time to be prepared. The delicious and freshness makes up for that, but be prepared to spend some time here. It's prefect for kids with their petting zoo and train ride. Tuesday is my favorite because of their creamy chicken and rice soup. Their fresh baked bread is very tasty!

This is a great place to stop with the family and grab a slice or whole apple pie to take home for later. They have so many baked goodies! However, their Mile-High Apple pie contains 3lbs of apples!

The food is amazing, the cider cannot be beat. And I love the old feel to the place, almost Amish (the owners and staff are Old Brethren, very similar to the Amish). You can even watch them working in the kitchens. Handmade crafts, books, a petting zoo, and even a scale train ride.

Cute little place to take kids and grandkids. They have a train ride and farm animals. We didn't try their lunch but got some goodies. Carrot cake was the best we have ever had. Iced lemon cookies were really good as well. Only thing I can suggest is their sign on the highway is a little small.
