Our Orchard is Bursting!

For over 50 years, visiting the farm has been an annual tradition. Our farm is a place for families to not only select their own apples, but to enjoy a taste of country life. Apples come in many varieties and each is uniquely different in its own way. We grow over 22 varieties of apples that are available to be picked by our guests. We have over 47,500 trees across 60 acres in our orchard. Our peak picking season is in September and October, and early apples are ready mid to late August. Check out our apples below to see the different varieties we grow. We kindly request that you check back to this section prior to your visit as apple dates can change due to weather.
