Opening for Pick-Your-Own Apples Saturday September 10, 2022

Greetings from the orchard! It has been a busy summer here at Rinker Orchards. We have been trimming trees, taking out some older trees and planting something new, cleaning and painting, and
getting ready for the 2022 harvest.

The apples are growing and adding their sugar and we will be ready for picking beginning on Saturday September 10th. The Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Fuji, and Ida Red apples will be ready on this date.

Our hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00am to 5:00pm beginning Saturday September 10 th through Columbus Day, October 10, 2021.

Rinker’s Apple Cider will be available in gallons and ½ gallons. The Stephens City Lions Club will be here with their apple butter for sale and will be manning their copper kettles on September 10th, 24th, and October 8th. They will have apple butter for sale on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season.

Our friends from the Shenandoah Valley Beekeepers will be with us again with their local honey and honey products.

Other friends of Rinker Orchards will be joining us throughout the season so be sure to check your emails for our weekly newsletter to see what is going on in the orchard and in the community.

We are looking forward to seeing all our old friends and making new ones this season, it’s your smiles that keep us going.

You are welcome to bring a blanket and picnic lunch and spend a relaxing day in the orchard with us—we are looking forward to seeing you!
