       Our own orchard-fresh apples are available two ways:

 1.Pick your own -  This is a limited u-pick year due to the harsh winter. As of 10/13 we have no more pick your own apples left.

 2. Bag your own - Great selection of apples from our own farm available in our APPLEMARKET for the same price as u-pick.  The Applemarket is Open daily August through early Nov.

   Our spacious AppleMarket features our fresh-picked apples!  Come and bag-your-own or pick up pre-filled bag. There are always good buys available for those of you who like to bake, can or freeze.
