If you are visiting West Texas, I think this is a great spot to head to. I went with college age students and we all loved it. You won't experience anything like it in big cities, so it is definitely worth to go at least once when you are in Lubbock.
The bakery is great, filled with homemade food and lots of random touristy stuff. Make sure you check their website so you know when picking season is.
We love the apple orchard and go out to pick apples at least once a season. We load up all the cousins and make a day of it. The apples are delicious (you can pick AND eat as you go)and very affordable. The buffet lunch is super-yummy and kid friendly. Try the apple spice cookies with the cream-cheese frosting - TO DIE FOR!!! They also usually offer pumpkins for sale from local farmers in the area in October.
One thing to remember - bring your mosquito repellent!
A short trip from where we stayed in Lubbock, we truly enjoyed lazily walking through the myriad rows of several varieties of apples. We've enjoyed pick-your-own trips before, and this one as well.
A rolling bin with comfortable handle was provided, but the grounds were a somewhat bumpy, so until the bin was a bit heavy, I just carried it.
There is a well stocked gift shop with tourist standard items, but also in-the-shop produced pies and breads that are exceptional. Don't miss their version of the good old American Apple Pie.
This big kid enjoyed it. I'm not sure 15 year olds would be as thrilled, but younger kids would delight.
