Pick-Your-Own Apples: Instructions and Tips (Picking Hours 10:00AM-5:00PM when available)

Check In at the Apple Barn

When you arrive at the orchard, purchase a special Pick Your Own bag inside the Apple Barn or at the designated tent outside. We will direct you to the trees that are ready for picking. Please do not pick apples in other areas. Hours for picking are 10:00AM-5:00PM when available.

Use the Right Technique

Cup the apple in the palm of your hand. Twist the apple up and over the branch. This method ensures that next year’s bud is undamaged and ready to produce another apple next season. Pick apples from the tree branches, never off the ground.

Respect the Trees (and Fellow Visitors)

Climbing the apple trees can damage them, so please don’t. It’s tempting, but please refrain from eating apples while you’re still in the orchard. And—it should go without saying—no throwing apples!
