u pick apples

Apples (September & October)

Watch “It’s Fresh!” for news on what apple varieties are available. Bring your kids or your grandkids, or grab your neighbors kids — and enjoy an apple right off the tree.  It doesn’t get any fresher than that!

Pick as few or as many as you like.
Price 1.49/lb

Not every apple variety we grow is available for pick-your-own due to the location of the trees, but the following will be available throughout the season (Please note these are not all available at the same time): Gala, Honey Crisp, Daybreak Fuji, Cortland, Jonathan, Jonagold, Golden Delicious, Crimson Crisp, Mutsu, Empire, Red Delicious, Cameo, Stayman, Fuji, Pink Lady, & Granny Smith. These are listed in a “typical” ripening order so we start with Gala and end with Pink Lady & Granny Smith.

Climbing the trees in our orchards or using ladders is prohibited! Please help us keep the farm safe by making sure that your family abides by these few friendly rules!
