To help limit exposure for both customers and staff, and provide another shopping option, we are offering “curbside pickup” where you can call in an order and then pick it up later that day (or the next day or two).
For simple orders we can run a credit/debit card while on the phone; or we can call you back to do that once we have total. Or, you can let us know when you arrive and we can do payment then when we bring your order out.
**New** our new order online here -- things to note, please read through these before ordering --
-- just a handful of our items are here, and for produce which must be weighed, you still need to call.
-- orders must be during our business hours 9 to 6 (sorry!)
-- use your cell # to order; IF YOU DON'T GET AN IMMEDIATE TEXT BACK that means the order did not go through. please try again or call us.
-- please wait 'til you hear from us by text or phone call that your order is ready before you show up
-- if we don't talk on the phone for some reason then we only have a phone number on the order, not a name. (So whoever does the pick up needs to ask by the phone number :))
You can however start your order with the online form, submit it, then call us to add to it, or to specify/check what pies or bread or veggies etc we have, for example.
The online order form still requires payment upon pickup; or we can do payment over the phone. (It isn't perfect but it's a start :) )
*Please bring your own bags (or we have paper bags for 10 cents or our cool new red Soons reusable bags for $2 - they are on the online order form under "general") per the new state law, or if we have boxes we can use them*
Also when you call please let us know if you've ever had a receipt emailed to you from us or you've ordered before, so we can assign your order to you in our system. (Stay tuned, Soons shopping loyalty program TBA!)
May 3: It's now been a few weeks -- we're improving! While we are double checking, we encourage you to double check your order before you head home. Thank you to everyone who helped "break us in" lol.
To help speed phone calls, we will list here below those items in high demand and produce we do have on hand here and will update as often as we can. Please review the list before calling! thanks!
The store number is 845-374-5471; you can call anytime 9 to 6.

Can I bring my dog/pets to the farm/orchard?
We don’t allow pets into the U-Pick orchards (new government safety rules pretty much bar 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 dog (very friendly!) so please let us know if you have your dog and is going to be out of the car. Service animals 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, 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.
