Get Your Apples at Soons Orchards
Some Say it's the Best in the Whole World
Soons Orchards grows 50+ varieties of apples!
From your well-known favorites, to heirloom apples you've probably never heard of.
You can eat a new apple every week of the year!
Apples are picked when they are at peak flavor (we pick and grade for taste - something many other orchards and big operations out West do not do!) ..so use these dates as a general estimate please!
For estimates of apple readiness in our U-Pick orchard, visit that page!
2020: you can also make your reservations to pick this season!

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.
