Picking Apples in Our Orchard

Final weekend u-pick Oct 24-25 is open 
only for the intrepid picker who likes Goldens 
and is ready to walk & look, , first come 
first served, NO reservations required

10 to 4. Last orchard entry 3:30 pls. 


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

Reminder ! customer pets are not allowed in the Orchard.  
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! Note we don't use herbicides to control weeds etc, so there is typically a lot of grass and yes, possibly poison ivy. AVOID SHORTS if you are allergic!

Always pick what you can reach, do not shake or climb trees. Those found  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

NO BAGS larger than a football are allowed into the orchard. No backpacks. Please plan accordingly.
And we reserve the right to inspect all bags, strollers etc.  

We do not allow "pole pickers," or ladders, of course.

You can access our 5-acre Orchard by foot only.
Wear sturdy shoes and consider pants, consider boots if it's wet or there's a heavy morning dew.

There is no designated picnic area (2020: no picnics, sorry) and facilities are limited to a port o jon at the u-pick.

Dogs (leashed, friendly, etc) are OK in the grassy parking area, but for everyone's safety, as well as to comply with government food safety regulations, customer pets are not allowed in the Orchard.  Thank you for your cooperation.
Documented service animals are welcome.

No tour busses please.

Still have questions ? let us know!  thanks!

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.
