When are you open?
Soons Orchards farm store is open daily from mid-July (as soon as our peaches are ready) until May 31.
We are open daily except for Christmas Day! 9 to 6 most of the year, 9 to 5:30 when the sun goes down way too early!
(We close in June and part of July because at that point we are out of apples and our other fruits and veggies are still growing!)
Our U-Pick apple orchard opens Labor Day weekend and stays open weekends as long as we have enough apples to offer - sometimes mid-October, sometimes the end of October, sometimes even into November (but that is rare).
U-Pick Apples usually starts Labor Day weekend and runs until supplies last- which can be anywhere from Columbus Day weekend to the first or second week of November, depending on the year/crop. U-Pick is open weekends and holidays, 10 to 4. U-Pick is not typically open weekdays. Our U-Pick page is updated frequently, so please check it for the latest.
U-Pick Pumpkins begins the second or third weekend of September and runs until Halloween. Our pick your own pumpkins is also weekends only; wagons run from about 11am til 4pm depending on demand and weather.
U-Pick Peaches is by special announcement only. We typically have one weekend in August where we have enough peaches to offer u-pick. Check our website or Facebook page for news about pick your own peaches.
Do you take Credit Cards?
We take credit cards and debit cards in our farm store. For U-Pick, it’s cash only. We do not accept personal checks. Our pumpkin shack is taking credit cards again this fall, technology willing!
Can I bring my dog/pets to the farm/orchard?
We don’t allow pets into the U-Pick orchards (new government safety rules strongly discourage any animals in any orchards or fields), however you may have your dog in the (grassy) parking lot with you. At the main farm store, please note that we have our own farm dogs (Bonnie et al have their own fan clubs!), so your dog should be well-socialized if he/she is going to be out of the car. Service dogs are always welcome, of course.
Soons was an accidental discovery while taking a scenic drive. It has become one of our favorite places! Your cider is hands down the best we've ever tasted and those apple cider doughnuts, don't get me started! I'll wait on line forever for one. (And I did wait on a long line for some when I was pregnant.)

Food n drinks are delicious. I've been coming there for 13 years. Love this place. I live in Staten Island, NY… The drive is long but beautiful and I get to go to you guys.. Yummy food and amazing people.

Friendly staff, brilliant harvest of apples as nature allows, a delectable selection of local produce, preserved products, and baked goods at pretty reasonable prices given that it is a farm store. The cafe and wine/cider tasting room is cozy, but folks are very friendly. The outdoor beer garden with a grill and entertainment venue was brilliant in the Sunday sunshine. All in all, a fantastic experience and that's why we've been going to Soons for 10 years.
