Frequently Asked Questions
Is your orchard organic?
We are not a certified organic orchard. However we do work closely with UVM to develop the best Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices to keep the use of pesticides to a minimum.
Can I just pick any apple I see?
Not all apple varieties are ripe at the same time. We carefully monitor the orchards and only open for picking the areas that have ripe fruit. Our staff will direct you to the current picking areas – please respect our property and stay in these areas.
What should we wear to come picking?
We are a working orchard, and the ground can be uneven. Depending on the weather, it may be dusty, muddy, slick, etc. Proper footwear is important.
Do I need to bring a basket or bags for our apples?
We will provide your picking bag.
How should I store my apples?
It is best to keep apples cold in the refrigerator. That will help the apple keep much longer than if they were kept at room temperature.
Do you accept credit cards?
We accept all major credit cards as well as cash and checks
