Beginning with only delicious apples and their famous apple pie, this Willcox orchard was started in the 1980’s by a husband and wife along with their young son and daughter.  Now in 2012 you can pick juicy peaches, Asian pears, bell peppers, corn, etc…  Apple Annie’s is a farmers’ market fan’s dream! :)

For extra thrills make a reservation at the CORN MAZE.  Apple Annie’s added 3 levels of difficulty waiting to gobble you up!  Halfway through the maze is a high bridge with a great view of the farm; but, it will not give away the solution.

“When we planted the first apple trees we asked God for His blessing and guidance in this new venture, but we never envisioned the plans that He had for us! We planned for a commercially harvested crop, but His plans were for us to share our orchard, the farm experience, and the lifestyle that we love, with thousands of families from around the state. We consider it a real privilege to be able to offer an old-fashioned farm experience to today’s busy families!”  ~ John and Annie Holcomb
