The Honeycrisp has become our customer favorite. We start to pick in mid-September and then we pick it three more times as the fruit ripens.

There is usually a limited supply of Honeycrisp so stop out as soon as they are ready.  SweeTangos now available

For fall fun, come and enjoy the experience of U-Pick Apples. We also have donuts, pies, caramel apples and cider.
