Reed Valley Orchard Serves up the Best Apples in Central Kentucky!
Last week my real estate took me to Bourbon County, Kentucky. I showed a farm right outside of Paris, KY and after my showing on the farm and home, my client and I saw the signs for Reed Valley Orchard. I mean who doesn't like the taste of fresh apples and all the cool apple food products that seem to go hand in hand with fall. Once we saw the sign, we turned down yet another country road and proceeded on our way. Reed Valley is located at 239 Lail Lane in Paris which is about 7 miles from downtown Paris and really not far from Lexington, Cynthina and Winchester. It is right in the middle of horse country. While visiting this cute place, we learned the First trees were planted back in 1989 shortly after the owners purchased the land. Today there are over 3,000 producing apple trees of all kinds, pumpkins, berries, peaches and pears. They are open usually in mid June until December. While closed on Sunday and Tuesdays, they are open every other day from 9:30 am. until 5:30 p.m.
Once inside the shop I loved all the different types of apples available, over 45 different kinds on hand. They are great about letting you sample the different ones and they have tons of cool products from jams, apple spice ice cream, fresh baked apple pies, dried fruit snacks, and even apple cider slush drinks which I haven't seen anywhere else. They have a cute assortment of homemade soaps, canning supplies and other gift items. I just loved the vibe here. It seemed so calm and cozy and a great place to stop and relax for a bit before heading back to city life. Reed Valley Orchard has festivals throughout the season including Blueberry Pancake Days, Country Harvest Trail Days and the Berry Trail. You can even visit the Stagecoach Trail that Jesse James hiked and setup camp along the way. Check them out sometime and see if you can tempt your taste buds into trying several unique Apples exclusive to Reed Valley. I did and loved them! I have to say after visiting the other orchards in other parts of Central Kentucky, Reed's is my favorite! To learn more about Reed Valley Orchard check out their official site.
