Pick-Your-Own

Apples & Peaches

picking

The 2013 Harvest Season begins August 17th

The process for apple picking consists of parking in the designated field past the flag pole. Check in is at the Red Pavilion for bags, baskets, and picking poles (available for a small rental fee with a deposit). Ride the hay wagon to this week’s picking orchard (the location of which changes weekly as different varieties ripen). Pick fruit and fill your bag or basket. Take a return hay wagon ride to the Pavilion to pay for your fruit and return the picking poles. Walking to and from the orchard is always permitted along the designated walking trail, please come dressed for country orchards.
