“Apples! Apples!”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 via mobile

We came here in Sept--so it was apple season. We were able to pick our own apples and taste cider! There is a small petting zoo so they enjoyed it. (Alpacas, goats, ducks, chickens, and geese). We were able to pick pumpkins as well. A very nice affordable orchard experience!

“Pick your own fruit! Terrific sour cherries!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

I visited in mid-July to pick sour cherries. The orchards are well-kept, with good diverse plant cover, but it's mowed enough to walk around. The trees were groaning under the weight of all those gorgeous cherries!

They supply the pails and bags - all you have to do is fill them. It took me about an hour and a half to fill two pails, but I took my time because it was such a beautiful day. The fruit is in great shape. For 30 cents more per pound, they will pit the cherries for you too, but allow extra time. I was one of the last to start and last to finish, so I had to wait an hour. They have bottled water sale if you forget yours, and fruit rollups if the kids are desperate. There are porta-johns on site. They had some of the first peaches of the season. They also have a small fruit stand in the main building. Yesterday they carried blueberries, raspberries, peaches, sweet cherries, and a few sour cherries. There were also some vegetables available.

This would make a great outing for families. Even young kids can pick - or run up and down the rows when they get tired of picking. The price per pound is very reasonable, $1.05 per pound, pitted (75 cents per pound if you pit your own). Bring a cooler and your own water, and bring some Wet Wipes for your hands and arms when you're done!
