Apple Annie’s is a “you pick” orchard in Willcox, Arizona. It is about 1 1/2 hours from Tucson through the exhilarating countryside. A must see for travelers or anyone looking for a gladdening family activity. The farm is well marked and easy to find.
This WILLCOX ORCHARD was started in the 1980’s by a husband, wife and their 2 young children. They humbly began with only tasty apples and their famous apple pie.
Nowadays you can pick juicy peaches, Asian pears, bell peppers, corn, etc… Apple Annie’s is a farmers’ market dream!
The start of the Fall season is complete with PUMPKINS of all sizes, shapes and colors that are available for picking at Apple Annie’s HUGE pumpkin patch.
One of the best parts of Apple Annie’s Orchard is they sell “cider donuts” and your tummy will thank you! If you are adventurous, try a taste of the zesty jalapeno honey mustard, horseradish pickles and other oddly paired condiments.
For anyone traveling to Phoenix or Tucson, AZ the drive to Apple Annie’s Orchard is a great way to spend a relaxing, memorable day in the country. Remember to bring your camera and keep in mind fall days on the farm can be cold in Willcox.
Before planning your trip to Willcox, you can call Annie’s Crop Hotline at 520-384-2084 to hear a list of what the farm is currently harvesting.
Children can choose a wheelbarrow or bucket and pick their own vegetables while learning about farming.
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.
Rest your feet by relaxing on a tractor pulled hay ride in “Farmer John’s truck”. God bless you Apple Annie’s for all your hard work and dedication to the community. Oh and of course the YUMMY home made foods!

“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
