The 2017 apple picking season opens on Friday September 8, 2017.
We will be open from 10:00AM to 5:00PM on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from September 8th through Monday October 9, 2017.
Beginning on September 8th we will have Golden and Red Delicious, Ida Red, and Fuji apples on the trees for picking. Of course we will have our delicious Rinker’s Apple Cider available too! Nittany and Rome apples will be available Friday September 29th.
Our wonderful agricultural partners are back this year with the Stephens City Lions Club making their apple butter at the Orchard on September 16th, 23rd, and 30th. Their apple butter will be for sale all during the apple picking season.
The Shenandoah Beekeepers Association, Hummer's Back to Basics will also be joining us during the last of September and First of October.
We are planning some other additions this year and will keep you apprised through our weekly apple season emails.
We look forward to seeing you this season. Ya’ all are why we enjoy sharing our orchards and continue on with the "pick your own apples" tradition.
