With u-pick produce, amazing home-baked goods, and a large orchard, Apple Annie’s in Willcox is truly a country experience that every family needs. What we loved about Apple Annie’s was the simplicity. No extra rides or entertainment. Just nature, and a low-key farm experience that will refresh your soul!
And there are three unique locations to visit!
Apple Annie’s Country Store (1510 N Circle I Rd, Willcox, AZ 85643) – located near town, and open year-round (except major holiday), you’ll find homemade jams and jellies, baked goods (the pies are to die for), fudge, and the cutest decor items, perfect for gifts. There’s also a cafe offerings sandwiches, soup, and more. Definitely stop to try the Roast Beef Cheddar Chipotle sandwich! There’s indoor and outdoor seating, and a huge field for kids to run around!
Apple Annie’s U-pick Orchard (2081 Hardy Rd, Willcox, AZ 85643) – this location is amazing! Here you’ll find seasonal fruit, from apples to pears to peaches, available from July-October. There’s a small country store with baked goods, a few fun photo ops, and a weekend cafe. We loved picking apples and pears during our visit! The pears were some of the best we have ever tasted.
Apple Annie’s Produce and Pumpkins (6405 W Williams Rd, Willcox, AZ 85643) – here you’ll find u-pick and pre-picked produce, like melons and corn, as well as their seasonal pumpkin field, sunflower field, and corn maze! Seriously, the corn maze is epic, with multiple levels. The kids loved it! We came home with a beautiful pumpkin too.
More info about Apple Annie’s can be found on their website. Make note of their seasonal festivals and plan to visit multiple times to experience all they have to offer. And…
Apple Annie’s is a 3hr drive from Phoenix – so why not spend the night? There is so much to do in the Willcox area! Tour the Rex Allen Museum, have dinner at Isabel’s South of the Border and grab a coffee from Source of Coffee then watch the kids play at Keillor Park. There’s also nearby Chiricahua National Monument and Kartchner Caverns State Park. For a comfortable and fun stay, try the cabins at the Willcox KOA! We fell in love with this area of Cochise County and Southern AZ, and know you will too.
