Frequently Asked Questions
Q:Should I bring my own bag?
A: If you prefer to bring your own thats ok. We provide picking bags for you if you don't have one or you want an extra to pick more apples
Q:Do I need to keep the different varieties separate?
A: Only if you are picking Honeycrisp. That is the only higher priced pick-your-own apple. All we ask that you do your best to keep it separate, Otherwise the other varieties can be mixed and matched.
Q: How will I know where to pick?
A: We place variety signs at the end of every row. Not every row is marked and sometimes there is an odd tree in the row that does not match the rest. If you are looking for something specific, please ask someone at the main building and we'll direct you as best we can.
Q:How will i know what is ripe/ ready to pick?
A: We keep a list of what is ready on a white board in the main store when you walk in or right here on the homepage of this website. The list however, is more of a suggestion. If you are picking your own, feel free to sample apples while you are out there. You may find your new favorite apple that way.
Q:Can I take my car out into the orchard
A: Yes. Please leave enough for other vehicles to get by including the Wagon Tractor. You are also welcome to walk out to the orchard or take the free wagon rides which are available starting in September.
