2018 Apple Harvest Season

Farmer Guided Apple Orchard and Garden Tours: 

$15 per person, $7 ages 3 and younger, and infants are free of charge.

Tours are by Advanced Reservation Only.

Due to our liability insurance policy, because we are a Working Farm, every person that comes onto the property is required to purchase a Guided Tour Ticket.

The Guided Tour takes approximately 15-45 minutes depending on interest.

You will observe and learn fun facts about how our delicious apples grow, learn about natural soil enrichment, see interesting beneficial bugs and numerous examples of sustainable agriculture in action. 

We cover safety and farm policy at first and then you are welcome to explore on your own.

The Garden Tour is included and available for interested parties in groups of three to four at a time.

Our tours are customized to each groups needs and our tour guide’s loves to talk and answer questions!

Children must be closely attended to at all times on property.

Our chemical-free apples are 'all-you-can-eat' for the length of your visit with us- this way you only take home your favorites!
Apple Bags: are $15 each and the 1/2 Peck Apple Bag holds 5-7lbs of apples (between 10-20 individual apples) and many families choose to share bags. We recommend only one bag per family of four. 
Please make sure that each guest has sturdy closed-toed shoes, sunscreen, hats, water, etc. This a working farm. 

It is hot, we have hoses and drip lines on the ground, squirrel holes and there is always the potential for ants, snakes and wasps.
