It’s Apple Pickin’ time!

It’s Apple Pickin’ time!

We are now open for our Fall season!  U-pick apples available 7 days a week.  The 2016 apple harvest is about a week ahead of schedule.  Please see below for estimated harvest dates, but note that these are only estimates, always best to call the barn or check out Facebook to ensure your variety of choice is ready to be picked!  Friday, September 9th is the season opener for our annual corn maze!  This year we are channeling our love for Star Wars with our farmers twist, May the Farm Be with You!  For the next eight weekends, test your navigational skills in our 5 acre maze using your trivia knowledge to guide your way through the thick of it!  For more information or to set up a group outing, please check out the corn maze page or shoot us an email.  We also have some great events coming up to get you in the spirit of Fall.   Hopefully, you can pick a weekend to spend with us on the farm picking apples, checking out the corn maze, taste testing some donuts and fresh pressed cider!
