Cherries Pick-Your-Own Apples 2013

Live hAPPLEy
Harvest Time has gone through a huge transformation in the past few years! We have planted over 1500 new apple trees. It takes several years for the new trees to begin producing apples. 2010 was the first year we offered pick-your-own apples with our young trees. Check our facebook page for current information on apple picking and other activities at Harvest Time!

SadThe Pick-Your-Own Apple Orchard is CLOSED for the 2013 season!

For the 2013 season, we are planning to be open on Saturdays and Sundays ONLY (9:00 am to 5:30 pm). The opening day for picking is set for September 7, 2013. We will post dates here as they become available or you can sign up for our email list to have the picking information emailed directly to you. Check back often -- Picking dates will be determined based on weather conditions! (Be sure to refresh your browser so the latest information is shown)
