The 2014 Strawberry Season has ended and we
look forward to next year!

There will be NO peaches this year. Unfortunately, our entire crop was affected by the harsh winter. Our next fruit season is apples, so check back often for updates!

Apple Season is coming soon!!!

 


Apple Barn Orchard and Winery features an open orchard and a farm where you can pick your own strawberries, apples, and pumpkins when they are in season. To clarify, during our strawberry picking season, we offer pick your own or pre-picked strawberries based on picking conditions. The strawberry season is a 3-week season about mid June to early July. There may be days when you might want to come and pick strawberries and we have been "picked out". As with any harvest season it is always BEST to call ahead to confirm picking conditions!

During apple season we ONLY offer pick your own apples on the weekends. You will want to check the Harvest schedule to check what is in season for picking apples during the fall! We usually start the pick your own apple season at the end of September which is our Annual Apple Fest Weekend! Due to customers taking advantage of picking, wasting of apples,filling strollers or purses, children or parents throwing apples at each other and many other numerous situations we have chosen to ONLY allow picking apples on the weekends This also means that we do not allow any walking through the orchard except for when you are going to purchase a bag to pick your own apples. We are sorry we have come to this decision. We kindly ask that you respect what we do to harvest our crop on our farm.

They grow and sell 12 popular varieties of apples such as Honey Crisp and Cortland. The Apple Barn also makes all of their own apple cider and fresh cider donuts.

The farm is situated on land that has been in the Jacobson family since 1848. The operation is owned by Steve and Judy Jacobson. The orchard consists of approximately 40 acres being planted since 1976.

The strawberry season begins in mid-June until mid-July.

The winery is a new addition that specializes in a variety of fruit wines. All of the wines are made in small batches to ensure richness and quality. The winery offers delicious fruit wines such as apple, blackberry, and mulberry. Colorful variations include pear, cranberry, blueberry and rhubarb. Red varieties, so perfect for the holidays and gift giving include cherry and strawberry. Each flavor is created with the savory taste of homegrown fruits. The winery also offers wine tasting at scheduled times. Select a bottle for yourself, or share one with friends and family.
