There are apples on the trees!  And the Pumpkins are growing


Regular Season Opening August 26,2022
We will begin picking McIntosh and Autumn Crisp, others will not be ripe yet.

Note: Beginning in 2022 we will be open only 4 days a week, Thursday thru Sunday, 9:30 to 5:00.  We will be closed Monday thru Wednesday.

We have a few bushels of Yellow Transparent/Lodi apples in our cooler now. These make very light colored (nearly white) applesauce, but do not keep well.  $1.75/lb.

For Your Safety and Enjoyment

Please remember that you are visiting a working farm with some inherent  hazards and risks. Prepare you and your children for an outdoor experience.  You may not want to wear open-toed sandals or flip-flops since the ground is uneven and there may be insects and bees and even thorny plants. Sunscreen may be useful.  If you or your children have allergies (such as to bees and wasps) come prepared.  Be aware that there are many small irrigation ditches, irrigation pipe, hoses and irrigation tubing to avoid falls.  Pay close attention overhead while you are picking apples as it is easy to bump your head on a branch or poke yourself on a twig. Do not climb trees or allow your children to climb trees. Stay away from idle farm machinery at the back of the orchard.  Be cautious near the road and parking areas since some drivers might be thinking about....apples!  Be safe and have fun.
