No reservations needed.
No addmission fees.
Come down and "Pick your own Fruit"!
We offer pick your own apples, as well as prepackaged apples.
We have cold drinks and snacks available for your convenience. We have restroom facilities on site as well.
If you are planning on coming down, please remember that you will be around an active farm environment that contains small irrigation ditches, uneven ground, etc. We recommend wearing appropriate clothing and foot wear so you will get the most enjoyment possible from this great experience. Also, parents
please keep a close eye on your children to keep them safe.
We currently welcome pets, BUT ALL DOGS ARE REQUIRED TO BE ON A LEASH AT ALL TIMES and if they are causing problems, we will ask that you remove them
from the area.

We will open for the season on September 5th. At that time the Galas, McIntosh and Cortlands will be ready. The jonathons are right behind them and already starting to ripen. Things are ripening up ahead of the normal schedule this year, so keep your eye on the website for updates as to what is ready.
Cider will not be available for at least the first part of the season. We like to use our apples for our you pick customers, and our normal suppliers of cider apples in Hotchkiss have had a tough year, so we will start making cider as soon as apples become available.
For our Plum lovers, we have some bad news... Last November Colorado experienced a freezing event that changed the temperature from around 70 F, to -14F in a 24 hour period. This freeze killed all but 3 of our plum trees. It also completely wiped out our Granny Smith's, some Fuji and a lot of the Gala's. We have left the trees standing to show the impact that mother nature can have.
Fall is just around the corner. We will be opening a bit later this season, probably in early September. Check back for updates.
