Apple Picking Starting August 19th!
What's Special About Our Orchard:
We spray less than other apple orchards so some of our apples may have blemishes.
Just about every other tree is a different variety of apple. The trees are not labeled. We don't know every variety we have since we didn't plant them. When you pick here you get a good mix of apples.
As we start the season, not all the trees will have ripe apples. Therefore knowing how to pick a ripe apple is essential. If you twist then pull, a ripe apple will easily come off the branch. An apple that is not ripe will not easily come off the tree and you may damage the tree if you try.
Your picking experience will be lots of fun for the openminded. During apple picking season we offer our own unpasteurized apple cider, apple cider donuts made fresh and farm animals to see. In September and October we will have mums and pumpkins for sale.
If you are looking for a big orchard with rows of all one kind of apple, don't pick here.
Picking Days are Thursday through Sunday 9am-4pm
