The Taste of Autumn

In Lewis County, NY


There will be NO U-PICK this Fall due to a highly contagious bacterial disease (only contagious to apple trees, not humans) called fire blight; we are preventing the spread by not letting customers walk through the orchard.  

Additionally, supplies will be limited due to a late Spring frost that killed off a large portion of apples. 

Due to these circumstances, we will ONLY be opening the Apple Shack and Cider Press and offering pre-picked apples. 

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope to see you at the Apple Shack this Fall! 


Apple Shack – Pre-Picked Apples – Open Thursday – Sunday, 10am-4pm. 

Bushels of apples MUST be pre-ordered.  Please call Patsy 315-771-4354 to pre-order. 

Self-Serve Shelf @ the Apple Shack – open 24/7 while supplies last. 

There will be no U-PICK or playground this Fall!

Follow us on Facebook for up to date information on what varieties are currently available!


We added a Cider Shack onto the Apple Shack!  Purchase your bushel of apples in the Apple Shack and press your own cider! 

Cider Shack will tentatively open mid-September, depending on supply availability.  Reserve the press from Thursday – Sunday, 10am – 4pm, in 1-hour increments.  The cost to reserve the Cider Press is $10.00 (online payment only through registration).

Follow our facebook page for information on when the cider press will be open!  

Denmark Gardens Apple Orchard was established in 2010 by Patsy & Max Makuch. We took a portion of the family farm, and the orchard is a result of a retirement hobby! We have now planted 745 trees to date.

Applelishous Facts

  • apple
    One half cup of apples is only 42 calories
  • Apples contain no cholesterol or fat.
  • Apples are high in fiber, Vitamin A and niacin.
  • Apples contain iron and other trace minerals and are a fair source of Vitamin C
  • Apples are ranked No. 1 in antioxidant activity, compared with other fruits.
  • When you slice an apple, the cut cells of the apple are exposed to oxygen in the air, enzyems called polyphenol oxidase react to this injury and create the browning compounds. This is why apples turn brown when cut!
  • To prevent browning, dip the apple slices in a bowl of water mixed with lemon juice (2 quarts water / ½ cup lemon juice)
