Homestead Orchard is a quiet place in the country to pick 20 varieties of apples, pie cherries, pears, and red raspberries. Come and sit under one of the oldest and largest maple trees in McHenry county. Relax, see and hear nature all around you. Come inside the 1880s horse barn, now a store, and find hand crafted items, glassware, and maybe some antique furniture. You may also find honey from the bee hives along with beeswax candles made one at a time. There is a separate room to honor WWII veterans with memorabilia like photos, books, maps, model WWII airplanes, magazines, and 3 dioramas of Omaha Beach, with actual sand from Normandy, Battle of the Bulge and Iwo Jima.
Free parking and admission.
