    "Chapin's is our local orchard love having a local orchard by the way... and we love it. We stop by for their Ginger Golds early in the season and keep on coming for their cider and more after the golds are all gone! They have a great little kids hand's on play space in front... be sure to bring your camera since there are many photo ops among the pumpkin patch, old tractor and morning glory teepee!"

    "Chapin Orchard is an Essex tradition. They offer great applepicking and also organize great field trips for schools in the area. If you are in the Essex area, their cider donuts are worth the trip!"
