What an amazing orchard. I have never seen so many big, beautiful apples particularly in the last weekend of the NYS apple picking season. More importantly they are the best tasting apples as well. Huge variety and we couldn't decide which ones we liked best however the gold rush were out of this world. The grapes we picked were delicious as well. Cider donuts were hot and fresh and the cider is amazing. We picked enormous pumpkins to finish up our fall fun. Not over crowded, well organized parking and very helpful staff. This is our new family apple picking tradition. Much nicer than any of the places upstate or in Putnam/westchester county.

Just got back from a fantastic Mid Hudson weekend. Our first farm stop was Dubois Farms. The girl at the booth by the parking lot suggested we take a wagon and explained it was only a $5 deposit.........when we returned it an hour later we got $3 back. That's not a "deposit!" Also bring your own bags if you don't want to pay 50 cents for their bags. The orchard itself was nothing special.......crude map.....poorly signed. Prices for apples were average......pumpkins at 69 cents/lb was high......cider was nothing special.

Second stop was Hurds Family Farm in Modena......100% better! Lots for kids.....well signed.......professional brochure and map.......very friendly and helpful staff......best cider we've tasted......organized. You can pick your own apples or fill up your bag with any variety right in the barn.

Went here with my wife for the first time and discovered a very nice place to pick your own fruit. We picked golden suprime apples and plums. We enjoyed it so much we came back five days later and picked more plums. This orchid is very clean, well taken care of and the prices are reasonable. If you enjoy picking your own fruit, Dubois Farms is the place to go. It is free to visit and you pay for what you pick...Enjoy

Just got back from apple picking at Dubois Farms. What a great place. The kids loved it. This is our 2nd season going and we are never disappointed. There is so much to do. Face painting, sand art, a tiny town for the kids to play in. Tractor rides, petting zoo. You can easily spend an afternoon there. There is no admission charge, however activities such as the face painting and sand art charge a small fee. They have a great assortment of mums and pumpkins also... Love Dubois Farms
