Wheelchair Access
Since we are a working farm, we cannot accommodate wheelchairs in the Pick-Your-Own orchard. However, our retail shop is handicap-accessible.

Pick-Your-Own will begin on September 9th for the 2023 season and continue weekends until all the fruit has been picked. 

Pick-Your-Own (PYO)
Call for our phone message updates or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to see the exact dates and varieties we are picking.

PYO is weather permitting from 10am-5pm WEEKENDS ONLY.


PYO IS CASH ONLY.  An ATM is available in the Farm Store for your convenience  

Please, NO BACKPACKS or LARGE BAGS or PURSES in the orchard.

Upon entering we will explain what varieties are ripe and where to find them. We charge $20 cash per 1 peck bag which holds 10-12lbs of fruit.  We ask that you only use our PYO bags.

We have about 14,000 of dwarf apple trees and several varieties in our Pick-Your-Own orchard. The trees will only grow to a maximum of 10 to 12 feet for easy picking. We offer PYO apples on weekends and sometimes Columbus Day if ripe fruit is available.

Farm Bakery

All pies are available baked except for the sugar-free pie.

Farm Bakery
You will smell the fragrance of our farm-baked pies before you even walk into the Cider Mill. They are stuffed full of fresh fruit and we bake them on the premises every day. You may also purchase our pies frozen to bake at your convenience.
