Welcome to Harvest Time!
Harvest Time has been a family owned orchard for over 50 years! We specialize in tree fruits which include cherries, apples, apricots, and nectarines. You can usually pick your own fruit when it is in season. Sometimes, if the crop is small or the weather is not cooperating, we might not have the orchards open for picking. If you are coming to visit us specifically to pick your own fruit, we ALWAYS recommend that you call first. For example, if it is storming, there is a chance we are not allowing people into the orchards. Also, if we run out of fruit to pick, the orchard will close - so call to be sure we still have something to pick!
You will find fresh fruits that are already picked in our Red Barn beginning sometime in August through October. This may include blueberries, peaches, nectarines, apples, and other fruits as they ripen. Since we provide fresh fruits, those fruits are not always available. Click on our Red Barn link to find out more.
Be sure to check out our homemade donuts which we make fresh in our Donut Shop, cider made during September and October in our Cider Barn, and all of our great Country Smoke House meats and cheeses from Wisconsin.
We have about 40 acres of land with apple trees, cherry trees, and a few apricot and nectarine trees. The orchards are open only when the fruits are ripe so check our calendar to find out when you can go into the orchard to pick your own fruit. Check our Red Barn for when our other fruits will be available.
Harvest Time is located on the Illinois/Wisconsin state line about 7 miles west of Antioch, Ill. Click on the link above to get a map to our location.
Our Pet Policy
We recommend that you do not bring your pets with you to the orchard. While pets are welcome in our outdoor areas, due to some unfortunate recent events, we no longer allow pets inside our buildings or on the Orchard View Deck. So, if you bring your pet, you will be missing out on much of what we have to offer. Service animals are always welcome but all other pets must remain outside.
If you decide to bring your pet, we ask that you follow these rules for the comfort and safety of all of our guests.
- Your pet must be kept on a leash at all times. Even out here in the country, there are other people with their pets. Those people and pets might not get along with your pet as well as you do. Besides, the road that we are on is very dangerous for off-leash pets. The best way to keep your pet safe is to keep him on his leash.
- You must pick up after your pet even out in the orchard. We ask that you be considerate of others. You wouldn't want to step in what your pet leaves behind, and no one else does either!
Thank you for being considerate of everyone here at the orchard!
