Oak Hill's was another no-frills stand compared to some of the other roadside stands, but in my experience, their prices are often among the best.

Review

A nice stop to get excellent apples at the best prices, and with little waiting.  they don't offer any entertainment, but if you want to get good apples, in a hurry and at at good price, this is the place to stop.

The apples are already bagged and waiting, along with the usual selection of homemade jams, jellies, preserves, pickles and specialties.
