Our U-Pick orchard is open weekends only and is

Customer pets are not allowed in the orchard (the government says so, sorry!)

Service animals should have proper documentation.

Projected ready dates of varieties are listed below - to be updated as we get closer - which is always subject to change depending on weather and demand.  As we go later into the season, be prepared to walk into the orchard further to find trees with fruit. The rows are 700 feet long, and eventually, only the farthest trees have apples on a given row. We are not able to "re-stock" the apple trees... yes, we’ve been asked this!
Please note the 2022 crop has experienced some serious hardships including a nine week drought and a 26 degree night in late April, causing damage to many apples' development and significant crop losses. Unlike last year, where the trees were heavy with apples, you will be walking and looking more. Please pick with great care as supplies are limited. thank you for your understanding and patience.
Also -  if you encounter very high grass that's an indication to not go into that row/area. Thanks!
