It doesn’t take long to quickly fill a bag of apples to take home to eat fresh or make into applesauce. Supermarket apples don’t even come close to the freshly picked taste of a ripe apple off the tree.

U-Pick Apple Varieties we have are: McIntosh, Gala, Mollie Delicious, Mutsu, & Cortland. Each variety is ready at different times in the season so follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or give us a call to see what is available for U-Pick.

Please do not climb the trees for your safety and the health of the trees. We provide apple pickers to reach that perfect apple just out of reach. If you drop apples while picking, they are still good to keep. Our policy is if you pick it, you keep it.

Apple Tips:

Storage of Apples: To keep your apples fresh and crisp, store in the refrigerator with moisture (damp paper towel or spritz with water). Remember to wash your apples right before eating.

Summer apples are softer and more mild. Fall apples are stronger in flavor, more firm, and store well until winter. Winter apples store the best, have thicker skins, and stronger flavor.

Good choices for applesauce: Paula Red, Cortland, or McIntosh.

Apple Cider info: We press our own cider and use a mix of sweet & tart apples to get the best taste. Fresh cider is ready around mid-September.

In the market we will also have pasteurized cider in 1/2 gallon and gallon jugs.

NEW!! This year we will start taking orders to custom press your apples for cider. More details on how to get that done will come later!
