What’s Picking

Apple picking has ended for the 2017 season. Thank you to all who picked us and made this another successful year!

Keep an eye out for updates regarding strawberry season which starts mid-late June 2018!

When available, there’s no better way to enjoy a beautiful weekend with your family, friends, or loved ones than embarking upon a journey out of the city, away from reality, and into the fresh country air to pick your own fresh apples, strawberries, or pumpkins!  Strawberry season generally begins mid-late June; apple season mid-late September; and pumpkin season in late September. Stay up to the minute by liking us on Facebook™ or following us on Instagram™ to be automatically connected to the latest news, information, updates and pictures.

GINGER GOLDSOLD OUTThe Ginger Gold is the earliest, local fresh apple available in the fall. It's perfect for fulfilling that first fall flavor craving! A wonderful apple with a hint of spice and rich taste! A cross between the Golden Delicious and Albemarle Pippin. The Ginger Gold maintains crisp, white flesh when cut and is great as a snack, eaten out of hand! The Ginger Gold also holds its shape when cooked.
PAULA REDSOLD OUTGreat for eating or baking. Mild flavor, light flesh. Similar to McIntosh. More of a softer, mellow apple. One of the first apples picked. Makes a smoother sauce. Bakes like McIntosh

Described by the University of Minnesota as a sweet-tart taste with a hint of brown sugar. Good for eating and baking. New apple at the Apple Barn!
