County Line Orchard

The benefits of living in the Midwest are apparent during harvest season.

Apple picking is a time honored tradition in the South Shore. Red, gold, green, sweet and tart, the apples are ripe for picking from the end of August to October at County Line Orchard in Hobart.

County Line Orchard is the closest U-pick orchard to Chicago and features dozens of varieties of apples, special events, corn maze as well as a beautiful backdrop for weddings and other celebrations during the off-season.

The Harvest

County Line Orchard apple picking


Jump right in to pick more than 30 varieties of apples with your family. A tractor will take you and your family through scenic fields to the orchards where you can fill baskets with the ripest fruit. Cost: General Admission and what you pick (per pound).


The Orchard remains open through October so you can hunt for the perfect pumpkin in the patch or you can pick one that’s already waiting in the Big Barn. Cost: General Admission and what you pick (approx. $.40/lb. or max $12).



Pick your very own sunflower from mid to late September. Cost: General Admission and pay for a large or small bunch.


Visit the bee yurts to view the bees that make the orchard possible. You’ll see hundreds of bees at work. Limited hours for school tours.


If you have extra time, be sure to get lost in the Orchard’s enormous corn maze or take a ride on the Moo Choo for a fun and memorable tour of the farm.  

Stop into the Big Barn for lunch or jam out to some live music in the Barnyard area. Gain access to the Kid’s Farm ($5/Lil’ Farmer Pass or $10/All Access Pass) where you can see pigs and goats or ride a pedal tractor and get lost in the mini version maze – made of bales of hay.
