2022 Apple Season

The 2022 apple season will begin on September 10, a Saturday and close on a Sunday November 6th. The hours will be the same as last year, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.

The apple quantity this year is very good. The trees are loaded. However, some trees will have smaller apples this year because of the increased loading on the tree. There is no scab or insect damage to the apples.

What will mostly be ripe on Sept 10 through October 1st are Honey Crisp, Macintosh, Sweet Sixteen and Paula Red.

After October 1st, the mainline varieties will start coming in, such as Holiday, Empire, Jonathan, Cortland, Gala, Liberty, Ida Red and many others. I am something of an apple variety collector and so have upwards of 100 varieties on the property. The picking of main line and historic varieties of course, are limited to the individual times they become ripe.

Please keep in mind that this is a “pick your own” orchard. Identifications tags with suggested picking dates will be stapled to the trees. If it does not have a tag, it may not be ripe!

All apples are weighed at check out. Honey Crisp and Ginger Gold are $1.75 pound and all other varieties are $1.20 pound.

We do not charge an entrance fee, which appears to be the new thing in pick your own apple orchards. The only things we charge for are the products your buy.
Dogs and cats are welcome. We had one cat last year. This is understandable because cats just do not like to be off territory.

Please keep in mind that there are three independent venders under one roof at the orchard. They are Mark the Bee guy, Lori the Master Gardener and myself, the apple guy. New this year, Danny, Lori’s daughter is selling freeze dry skittles and apples. Please try to pay these individual venders for their products. But, if one is not available we have a new POS (Point of Sale) and card swipe application that can keep the sales separate.

Hope to see you during the 202 apple season.
