Opening Day: 9/11/15

U-Pick Only - We provide you with a sturdy apple bag (new and better this year) at no charge that you fill with any apple variety that is ready for picking. Mix varieties or pick all of the same. Pick the perfect bag of apples. It's fun and the prices are very reasonable.

Hours:
     Sunday to Friday: Noon to 5:00
     Saturday: 9:00 to 5:00
Prices:
     Peck bag (holds about 10 lbs.) - $7.00
     1/2 bushel bag (holds about 20 lbs.) - $12.00
     We do not weigh them.
Varieties:
     Zestar! and Paula Red will be available for             picking on opening day.
     Macs will be a day or two after that.
Pumpkins:
     All pumpkins are u-pick and all of them only         $3.00 each. They range in size from 10 lbs. to         20 lbs.
Honey:
     We have a very limited amount this year. We         only have four producing colonies and they lost
     quite a few days to gather nectar because of all      of the cloudy and rainy days.







A beautiful branch of Macs. Growing conditions have been very favorable this summer and the crop looks excellent. By mid-September they will be ready to pick. Photo taken 8/14/15

Zestar! This row is looking very good. The apples are yellow with a pink blush on the sunny side and about 3" diameter. Photo taken 8/28/15. 

Our field of pumpkins is ripening nicely. There are about 1250 to choose from. It is great fun to find and u-pick the perfect pumpkin. Photo taken 8/28/15
