If you’ve never been here before, here’s a quick overview:

While Apples are our passion, we enjoy sharing our scenic grounds with anyone looking for a great time – whether it be a day out with your family, a party with your co-workers, a tour with your school mates, a birthday party with all your friends, or your very special wedding day!

We can help you with any and all details of your event, and show you the best picking spots when the apples are ready.

We are a PET FRIENDLY Orchard (please have all dogs on a leash), offer many things for kids to do while they’re here, and have some of the best tasting apples on the trees and also available in our retail barn during the growing season.  You will also find a great selection of Gourds, Cinderella Pumpkins and Squash in the retail barn too!

We accept cash, checks and all major credit cards.
