U-Pick

Apple U-Pick at our orchard is the highlight of our harvest season!

When:

Our 2020 Apple U-Pick Season will open on September 11th and will extend until mid-October.

How it works:

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, people are welcome to pick apples from the trees located next to our warehouse, using pre-purchased bags (three bag sizes are available at our farm store).

On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, a hay ride (mandatory) brings you from our U-Pick cabin to the day’s selected orchard block, and brings you back when you’re done!

Apple varieties:

McIntosh and Cortland almost all the time.

Honeycrisp, Gala & Ambrosia are available on special weekends – usually the first two weekends of October.

Costs:

  • $8 for ½ Peck (5 lbs)
  • $15 for 1 Peck (10 lbs)
  • $25 for half bushel (20 lbs)
  • $20 for 1 Peck (10 lbs) for Honeycrisp, Gala & Ambrosia (Special Weekends)

Covid-19:

There will be a few changes this season compared to previous seasons due to Covid-19, including:

  • Sharing the name and phone number of someone from your group upon request;
  • The need to physically distance with people outside your group;
  • The need to wear a mask during wagon rides.

Pets:

Please note that for health and safety reasons, animals are not allowed in the orchard. We have a limited number of kennels available on site as an alternative to leaving your pet(s) in a vehicle.
