Most fruit is only available u-pick.  Picked fruit is only available occasionally (except for plums and apples which are picked when ripe).  Fruit trees can be picked from the ground.  We have boxes available or you can use your own containers.  We accept cash, Checks & Credit cards (new in 2016).

Unlike most  big commercial orchards, we pick our Apples when they are ripe to maximize flavor not storage life. 

We pick when necessary to prevent major crop loss.

Sorry we do not sell cider or fruit trees

 Updates

Fruit is ripening about one to one  and a half weeks early this year!!

March 15, 2016 Update

Most Nectarines are in full bloom and peaches are starting to pop open.  This is early and we anticipate the season will be 1 to 1.5 weeks early this year (about a week later than last year).  Please start calling us  about the 5th of July for early plums or about the 10th to find out when peaches and early nectarines will be available or watch this page for further updates on when varieties will probably be ripe.
