Directions for U-Pick and Wagon Ride to the Apple Orchard
Come to the hayfield below to park. Once you pay at the hayfield shed, you will receive a U-PICK sticker. After you get your sticker, load on the trailer to head to the orchard. The ride is approximately 10 minutes. When you get back from the orchard, take the new walkway up the hill to get your apple cider and apple cider doughnut.
Walking to the orchard. You are welcome to walk to the orchard but will still need to pay and get your U-Pick sticker.
What to wear apple picking. You will be primarily on mountain sides so closed-toe shoes are recommended. Dress as you would for walking/hiking outdoors.
School Field Trips and Group Tours. School groups or field trips of 15 or more can book Farm Tours weekdays by calling ahead. Tour bus groups that want to pick, please call ahead. Please call for group rates.
Pet Policy. You are welcome to bring small to medium size dogs on a leash or that you can carry. They are permitted in the farm and orchard area. Please make sure to take them to the woods to use the bathroom or clean up after them with your own waste bag.
The Pumpkin Patch opens in October. There are small, mid-size and big pumpkins planted. We have planted traditional pumpkins, cinderella, ghost(white) and MONSTER sized pumpkins.
Have Fun! You can play Cornhole, Horse shoes, play games, enjoy the covered bridge, have a picnic, pick flowers, play in the field and take a walk in the hayfield. Come out and enjoy the farm and have a great time!
