Farm Manners

Please note our new policies effective for 2020 season.

  • No one is allowed on the property when we are closed. Only visit during business hours.

  • No dogs or pets allowed. While we love dogs, we do not allow pets to visit the farm in order to maintain our produce safety and good agricultural practices. ADA designated service animals are allowed; emotional support animals are not ADA compliant and are not allowed. Thank you for your help! 

  • No smoking please. While visiting, please refrain from smoking or vaping. 

  • No alcohol or drugs are permitted. Help maintain a family-friendly environment.

  • No grilling, fires, or open flames allowed.

  • There are no electrical outlets or access available.

  • Interested in Professional Photography? Visit our Photography Policy. 

  • For everyone's safety, please monitor children closely; we are a working farm with farm equipment.

Pick Your Own Policies

Please note our new policies effective for 2020 season.

  • Are you curious about what's available for U-pick? Check out our Apple Availability page to see what apple varieties are in our store and what is open for picking. 

  • Check in before going into the orchard to pick apples. During the week, stop in the Farm Market to check in; on Saturdays, follow the signs to our Apple Pickin' Shed. 

  • When you arrive at U-Pick check-in, you will purchase picking bags. To maintain social distancing, there will be no need to return to check-out after picking your apples. 

  • Only pick what you wish to purchase. You are responsible for everything you and members of your group pick. Please help us prevent waste and be responsible with the fruits we grow.  

  • Treat our trees and their fruit gently. Do not climb trees, break branches, shake trees, or throw fruit.

  • We provide wagons for hauling fruit. Please do not ride in wagons. Only one wagon allowed per group. Return the wagons to the Apple House. You are welcome to bring your own wagons.

  • Only enter the orchard if you are steady on your feet and have proper footwear. The orchard contains sloping and steep areas that can be difficult to traverse.

  • Do not take personal bags or containers into the orchard for picking. Picking bags will be provided when you check in.
