Family Fun in Peoria IL!

It’s fall! You’re looking for a wholesome place to take the whole family. Where can you go? Tanners Orchard, of course! Meet our cute farm animals, where you can watch the goats climb the Billy Goat Bridge and into their Billy Goat Tree House, or check out our adorable llamas. Next, visit our Back 40 Fun Acres, miniature golf, tetherball stations, Funship Mayapple and Burlington Northern caboose. Get the kids’ faces painted, or hit the Apple Bin Bakery for fresh donuts. We also offer delicious apple picking in our apple orchard! Whatever you partake in, you’re sure to have family fun near Peoria IL.

Caramel Apples

It’s time to bite into a sweet, crunchy caramel apple from Tanners Orchard. You’ll find these tasty creations in the Apple Bin Bakery, where you can also pick up some cider donuts and fresh pies to round out your visit. Our caramel apples are made with an old German caramel recipe from 1975, whereby we cook the caramel for 45 minutes until the mixture becomes a velvety texture. We then hand dip each apple into the warm caramel and roll it in crushed nuts, or we can keep them plain if you prefer. We sell more than 50,000 caramel apples every year!

Food on the Farm

What would a visit to the apple orchard be without food? We have a full lunch menu, with specials featured every day of the week. Open 11 am to 2 pm, our homemade lunches are the perfect way to round out your day on the farm. Plus, we have weekday specials served September – October on Thursdays and Fridays only from 5 pm to 7 pm if you want to eat dinner here.

The Orchard

Catch a wagon ride out to the orchard and pick your own apples, where we offer more than 11,000 U-Pick apple trees and 17 varieties of apples. Also, on Festival Days starting late in September, take the wagon out to our pumpkin patch, where you can choose from six different varieties of pumpkins in our 20-acre pumpkin patch. All of these activities mean the family fun in Peoria, IL never ends.
