A quick note about Granny Smith. Note that seconds, a.k.a "U.S. Utility Grade" are usually available, but not guaranteed to be in stock at all times. You can always call us to order and we'll let you know when we have them. We also have cider apple grade apples for 25 cents/pound; self-serve/bag yourself at the cider apple bin. Dates always vary slightly
season to season and supplies, of course, depend on weather and demand call
ahead to check.
The bulk of our apple
trees are picked by us and graded (according to size and quality) for
you. We also have a wonderful young dwarf-tree orchard where you can
own apples. "Hampton Station," our "U-Pick"
orchard, is open 10 am - 4 pm on fall weekends, plus Columbus Day, from Labor Day weekend typically, into late October, depending on weather & demand.
