What to Expect:
- As we use organic methods to grow our fruit, you will often need to prepare for a bit more time to find that perfect bite.
- We encourage all u-pickers to wear close toed shoes and long pants.
- Bring a sun hat and water. Even though we are at a beautiful 5,000+ foot elevation, even here we can experience warmer days over the Summer and early fall.
- We provide necessary picking implements and bags.
- Apple picking is paid for by the pound and instructions will be provided upon your arrival
- Many of our apple tress are more than 80 years old. Careful care and attention is given to each one to ensure their longevity. We ask that all u-pickers be mindful of this as they enter the orchard.
