We do request that our visitors follow our picking rules to help retain as many apples on the trees for all pickers to enjoy.
Please respect the trees: No climbing, no pulling or shaking branches.
No throwing apples.
Children must be supervised at all times.
Picking an apple form a tree is easy! Roll the apple up and off the branch and give a little twist. Don’t pull straight from the tree! If two apples are joined together at the top, both will come away at the same time. Don’t shake the trees or branches. If the apple you are trying to pick drops, or others on the tree, go ahead and pick them up! They are perfectly fine! But do wash them before you eat them. Once picked – don’t throw apples into the baskets, place them gently. Don’t wash your apples until you are ready to use them, to prevent spoilage. Keeping apples cool after picking increases their shelf life
