Picking today Spartan and Cortland as well as Empire and Honey Gold.

We are now staying open until 6:30pm from Monday to Friday. Saturdays & Sundays we are open 9am-5pm. We trust that this will help all our wonderful visitors to better plan your family time at the orchard. 

Paying cash is being encouraged this year in order to minimize lineups at the checkouts. We find that by avoiding the use of cards lineups are kept to a minimum. If that is not convenient for you we still accept credit and debit cards.

PLEASE check back to this section prior to your visit as variety opening dates can vary according to weather.
