About the Hillcrest Orchards Family

Bill Dodd, Diane Dodd and the family own and manage Hillcrest Orchards Fun Farm in Amherst, Ohio.The farm where Hillcrest Orchards Fun Farm currently resides was purchased in 1928 when the Dodd family moved from their orchard in Bay Village, Ohio.

We are now proudly operating our family orchard with the fourth and fifth generations of family members.

All the family members help with the farm operations. The grandkids are responsible for testing the play area equipment and the pedal karts along with anything else that can be climbed on!

Bill Dodd, pictured center seated, is also the Program Director of the Ohio Apples Marketing Program (OAMP) and current President of the Ohio Fruit Growers Marketing Association (FGMA).

The farm consists of 90 acres in Henrietta township and currently has 30 acres of apples and 16 varieties. We also now grow 2 acres of peaches and 5 acres of pumpkins.

Our Hillcrest Family is dedicated to being a steward of the land here on Henrietta Hill. We enjoy sharing the tradition of farming with our guests as well as the great memories our visitors have in our orchard. We always look forward to picking season and can't wait for your next visit!
