Kuipers Family Farm
Weekend apple picking in this Kane Co. orchard begins with an old-fashioned hayride to the grove where you can select from over 20 varieties of apples. The Orchard Shop & Bakery offers apple cider doughnuts. fruit pies, fudge made fresh on-site, caramel apples and freshly pressed apple cider. The Maple Park farm also offers U-pick pumpkins, a corn maze and kids' activities, fall decorations, Christmas trees, and in the fall, open-air cafes serving pulled pork sandwiches, chili, hamburgers, bratwurst and hot dogs. The farm is open Tuesdays through Sundays from late August through December, but apple picking and some other activities occur only on weekends.
