Individuals, families, or groups may pick different varieties of apples as they ripen. The trees are semi-dwarf and easy to reach. You can pick a few or a lot, and pay by the pound ($1.00/lb)(no credit cards). We do not sell by the bushel. Please call for an appointment for Mon. to Thurs. or come out on Fri.(9am to 5 pm), or Sat.(9 am -5 pm) or Sun.(1pm-5pm).

Come out for this fun experience. Take lots of pictures.  But if you wish to set up a professional photography session (with your own photographer), please call for an appointment. We do charge a $20 fee for a session. 

Due to Covid 19 restrictions to keep everyone safe we are making a few changes. Please note:  Please wear a mask as you come up to the shed or on the front porch, due to people being closer and talking to each other. We will give you an instructional sheet  to explain what you should know even if you have been here before. We will have a hand washing station behind the shed and in the port-a-potty at the barn for your good health. We will also have hand sanitizer available. A second payment box will be located by the shed to alleviate over crowding on the front porch.  Please make sure to stand back from other family groups. We will wipe down the handles on the pumpkin barrows after you return them to a designated area. Trash baskets will be available for white slips and instruction papers. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

Throughout the apple season we often have school groups tour the orchard.

The dwarf apple trees were purchased from Adams County Pennsylvania and Central Michigan. The trees are planted approximately 6 to 8 feet apart and rigidly fastened to horizontal wires. These wires prevent the trees from falling over, when the trees are loaded with ripe apples. All apples are tree ripened prior to picking. An irrigation system has been installed for use during dry weather. A spraying schedule is in accordance with current Penn State Guidance. Peaches are available in September only.
