Pick Your Own Apples

PICK YOUR OWN APPLES – What a great family tradition!  Weekdays:  10 – 4:30; Weekends:  9 – 4:30

How does it work?

We are happy to announce the we will be open for Pick Your Own Apples this year.  However, there are a few changes:

  1. There is a minimum purchase of one half bushel  (20 lb.) – $40 – paid upon entering.  Debit & Credit Cards are preferred but we will accept cash.
  2. Physical distancing needs to be maintained at all times.
  3. Families/groups need to stay together & pick together.
  4. It is recommended that you not eat until you are able to wash or sanitize your hands.

Our Pick Your Own system is set up for DRIVING YOUR CAR INTO THE ORCHARD.  Upon arrival, you will drive to our “Check in Booth” where you will be greeted by one of our friendly staff wearing a mask or shield.  They will tell you which apples are ready for picking that day.  You are given a sheet with varieties and row numbers marked so that you can easily find the apples of choice once you are in the orchard.  The last step before entering the orchard is to pay the minimum price of $40 for one 1/2 bushel of pick your own apples – any variety.  You are given a bag to pick into & you are ready to go pick!

In the orchard you will see our orchard monitors, ready to help  you with parking and finding the apples that you want to pick.  They’ll have extra bags just in case you decide that you need more than 1 bag.  Once you’ve finished picking, you’ll follow the one way route to the “Check out Booth”.  Please open your trunk for checking out.  If you’ve picked more than 1 bag, you will then pay for the other bags that you’ve filled.

For information on varieties, please check Types of Apples & Availability for the complete list.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Apple Season.  We hope that you are able to come out to enjoy it!
