The line was long to get in, but it was worth it! We have gone twice and earlier in the season is definitely better, as by the time we went on October 20, the apples were much more difficult to come by. Our 5 year old loved the animals and pressing cider. We will definitely return again next year!

Our 7th and final stop for the day. Parking is along side the road, so be careful of drivers. We walked into a small building where we were greeted by a friendly woman who explained what we could do and where we could go. We opted for the $15 bag which amounts to about $1 per apple depending on size and we packed that bag! We walked out the back door as it was getting closer to closing time and first thing the kids wanted to see the mini donkey and horse. They then picked apples--their friends had never done so before. A little black cat followed us around. There was a cider press station, but there were several kids, so we decided to do that another time.

A great day for us and our little girl who saw a real farm, healthy animals, had a lovely healthy meal and learnt a lot about organic living.

The hosts are well organised, informative and helpful, have recommended to all my friends!

Oak Glen has a number of orchards where you can pick your own apples. Willowbrook is one of the smaller operations and this is why we like it. We were there this year on the third day it was open for picking. It was Saturday, and the whole area was very busy. Like crazy. We thought we would get in early but by 10am the roadside was full and we had a walk to get to the farm. By the time we left, about 1pm, the road was essentially a parking lot.

This farm has cider pressing, with the old fashioned hand presses, and the kids loved having a go. Do this first and get in early! There are 2 presses, but the line builds quickly, so if you want to do that make it a priority.

The apple grove isn't large, and it wasn't crowded as most people head to the larger farms. But it's smaller size makes it excellent for smaller children who tend to roam and run. Early in the season the apples were easy to pick low down but later in the season they will provide tools for reaching higher.

The only slight negative vibe was the (I thought overly) vigilant staff who were very quick to tell off children who ate apples they had picked. This was a little off-putting and the children didn't know quite how to take it. If the farm is concerned about loss of income surely they could build this cost into the entry fee? It's not as if kids can eat many apples!

The other weak point in the operation was trying to purchase the apples or other products. The shop is really only a small shack, and there was only one somewhat slow register. The line snaked around the interior and out the back where it was hot in the direct sun. I know the season is short but a faster payment system would reduce stress on tired families.

One final tip. If you come up to Oak Glen for apple picking and then a picnic go further up the road to the small local library which has a very good park with tables and a playground and plenty of shade. While it is not permitted to park your car in the parking lot there and go picking, it is permitted to park there and have a picnic or play in the playground. While the road was crazy full the parking lot at the library/playground had plenty of space. Definitely worth using the playground.

We have been visiting Oak Glen for nearly twenty-five years. Our children are actually adults now, but always want to return. We have never ventured past Riley's Farm previously. Today was our first visit to Willowbrook, and we were warmly welcomed and had a wonderful visit.

The berries are just about gone for the season it seems, but somehow my husband and daughter managed to fill two containers of blackberries. This was a new experience as we've only picked strawberries and raspberries in the past. Though small in size they were huge in flavor!

Cheryl met us at the entrance with samples of the cider made with the currently available apple crop. While it's too early in the season for u-pick apples, you can make u-press cider, which we did. The apple of the day was pink lady, and wow did it make great cider! I nearly cranked the whole bushel through by myself I'm proud to say :)

We were SO impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of everyone we met at this farm. You can tell they love sharing their crops and knowledge, and it felt like what a family farm should feel like. They are personable, patient and polite!

Thank you for a wonderful visit! We'll be back!

We visited the last weekend of apple picking.if you want to pick apples you will need to purchase a bag. After a short simple explanation we were allowed to go as a family and pick apples, wander the farm, interact with the animals, and make our own cider. All of the employees were friendly and very helpful. We felt welcome and never rushed. A very enjoyable relaxing couple of hours.

We've been coming up to Willowbrook Apple Farm each season for the past 10 years. Each time has been a treat and we've appreciated the warm welcome by the Swanson's each year. They're a lovely family with a great little family farm.

We just got back from our annual trip (10/4/2014) with forty pounds of Winesap apples. If you've never been apple picking up in Oak Glen, you have to give it a try. It's a great family day trip! Make sure to stop at Willowbrook. You'll appreciate the "small country" feel and family atmosphere that is very different from the other orchards in the area (we've been to one or two of the others ... not impressed). This is a small family-run operation with trees that are around 100+ years old.

Winesap apples are a little different from the store-bought variety. You'll find them on the tart side of sweet, with a firm crunchy texture. If you think of that old candy "sweet-tarts" they're sort of close to those. This year's harvest was possibly the best we've seen in the last five years with some of the apples approaching grapefruit sizes. Additionally, we pressed (or Dad pressed, depending upon your point of view) a gallon of apple cider. Drink it quickly or it turns into mead! The apple picking season sort of kicks off our holidays as well, so it's something we look forward to each year.

If you haven't made a trip up to Oak Glen and, more specifically, visited Willowbrook Apple Farms, you're missing out! I highly recommend this to family and friends.

Okay, so I'm biased. I admit it.

We started going here about nine years ago, when the Swanson's first opened for business. My eldest son was two years old, at the time, and we had the place to ourselves so we spent that afternoon, getting to know the Swanson's. Wonderful family and we've gone back every year since. Today (10/19/2013), we just returned from our latest trip. Unfortunately, the harvest was light and we missed the u-pick apples but spent the day there, none-the-less, pressing some cider, eating caramel apples, and visiting. Over the nine years we've visited, we've brought the Grandparents along and (usually) hauled back a lot of apples. Admittedly, you pay more to pick them yourselves, which is pretty amusing since you can go to Costco for a lot less but it's the friendship that brings us back every year.

We'd been to some of the other apple orchards in Oak Glen and they're just not family like the Swanson's are to us.

Note: This is a family farm - essentially, an apple orchard on private property - so there is no parking on the grounds. You must park on the street. If you have a problem with that, leave your house early so that you will arrive around 9:45 AM a few minutes before opening. We found a spot on the street, right in front of their house so we had no issues. Oak Glen, as a whole, get's jam packed with visitors on weekends so just plan on street parking. As mentioned, get there early and you'll get a good spot. Arrive around 11:00 and plan on parking farther away and doing a lot of walking.

We discovered Willowbrook when we were looking for a "less crowded" experience for our preschool. It turned out to be everything we were looking for! The branches were low enough for even 2 year-olds to reach and the staff was very patient with our large group of 30 or so parents and children. We loved the variety of activities such as the beehive, short wagon ride and cider pressing. Parking is a bit tricky but carpools were encouraged. Our first trip was in October 2010 and we will go again this year. I'm bringing my 2 year old granddaughter this time to start a new family tradition.

We love Willowbrook. The winesapp stamen apples are delicious, and Cheryl makes the very best sugar-cinnamon apple slices we've ever had. She and her husband are kind and patient, and let our daughter fill her container generously. She got to pet and feed the horses. We go every year. Willowbrook is our favorite small orchard.
