Nothing tastes better than fresh picked fruit
and there is no better way to get the real fresh picked taste
than to get it right from the orchard.

Our farm has been welcoming generations of
both "local pickers" and "city pickers"
with the delightful experience of enjoying fresh fruit
directly from the actual sources - our wide variety of apple trees.

No Dogs Please -
We Have Two Puppies and Blind Dog at the
Orchard who love people but not other dogs.

Meet Our Orchards


Every single apple is picked by hand. Sorted the same way. The fruit is also beautiful.
