Picking Apples in Our Orchard

REMINDER REMINDER!
U-Pick is ONLY weekends and holiday Mondays. 

(Weather too sketchy for Oct 9/Yom Kippur so we will NOT be open for U-Pick)
Our U-Pick orchard is around the corner from our store - at 634 County Route 50 New Hampton NY  10958. 

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... LOL

Pick in the designated ready rows; we open new rows every week, but note not all all apples are necessarily mature in those new rows -- choose ones with the most color and that come off the tree easily. Please leave the others for later picking :)

Our orchard is easy to navigate and not so big that you can get lost!

Always pick what you can reach, do not shake or climb trees. Those caught doing damage will be asked to leave the orchard and no refunds will be given. Those caught stealing will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

We have smaller sized "dwarf" apple trees, so kids will have a great time picking their own apples

Pick by grasping the apple and gently twisting and bending up at the stem.

Don't pull - you'll likely knock other apples to the ground. The best pickers don't knock any apples off the tree

Treat your apples like eggs - they bruise easily

Refrigerate them when you get home for the best crunch!

Please arrive by 3:30 so you have time to pick. Admittance after 3:30 is not guaranteed, sorry!

Respect your fellow pickers and our Orchard by picking with care

You can buy as many bags as you like, but cannot bring your own

Pricing is by the bag; 2019 prices $18 (peck) / $28 (1/2 bu)
Cash only at U-Pick. For credit card purchases please come by the store first.

NO BAGS larger than a football are allowed into the orchard. No backpacks! Please plan accordingly.

Please note, we do not allow "pole pickers" - no exceptions

Wear sturdy shoes and consider pants, consider boots if it's wet

There is no designated picnic area, and facilities are limited

Dogs are allowed in the grassy parking area, but due to insurance, as well as new government food safety regulations, no pets are allowed in the Orchard. Of course dogs should be friendly and leashed, and you must clean up after your pet

You can access our 5-acre Orchard by foot only

What Our Visitors Say…

  • 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.)
    Melissa Marie via Facebook

  • 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.
    Lauren M. via Facebook

  • 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.
