When Edwards Apple Orchard East, at 7061 Centerville Road in Poplar Grove, opens later this month, it will be a very different experience.

Have you already marked your calendar for Edwards' opening date? In just a couple weeks, the cider, the apples and THE DONUTS will be returning. Edwards East and Edwards Apple Orchard West, at 8218 Cemetery Road in Winnebago, will both be opening on August 28.

The pandemic has not kept the Edwards family from opening, but it has changed how they will operate both locations. For the 2020 season, they will be using a drive thru system so we won't have to get out of our cars. Edwards' Cider Cellar, Animal Barn and play area will remain closed for the 2020 season.

There will be signs telling you where to pull up your car. You'll be met by an employee who will give you a list of the 20 items they are offering on that day. You mark off the items you want, then pull up to another tent to checkout.

NOTE: donuts, apples and cider will be available every day.
