Thousands walk the grounds of Heller Orchards for the Apple Festival. Under sunny fall skies, guests are treated to all things apple, including handmade goods from 50 vendors and an array of historic and educational attractions.
The event started in 1988 as a fundraiser for two area churches, with the Heller family offering the groups to hold the festival on the grounds. Now, the event benefits roughly five area churches as well as several local first responder organizations.
Children are able to be a part of history with several hands-on activities, such as corn shucking, washing clothes with a hand-cranked wooden washer, or playing several old-time games.
Greg and Andrea Heller decided to keep the historic and educational elements alive. They are appreciative and grateful to everyone who decides to come out every single year.
