This year, we're following social distancing guidelines for picking, in order to keep all of our customers and staff as safe as possible. That is our top priority. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through these changes this season.

COVID-19 Regulations

  • Please do not come to our farm if you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or any contagious illness (e.g., fever, vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, fatigue, body aches), or have come in contact with someone who has.

  • Every customer is required to wear a face mask during his or her visit whenever 6 ft distance from others is not possible, especially at checkout.

  • We cannot allow reusable containers for picking this year. We have baskets and bags available for purchase when you check-in.

  • Everyone must WASH HANDS before picking. There are restrooms available for hand washing inside our farm store before or after check-in, and upon checkout.

  • Hand sanitizing stations are available in the orchard and labeled on the orchard map.

  • Absolutely NO PETS allowed on our farm or in the farm store.

  • Please be mindful of your distance from others and maintain a minimum of 6 feet from anyone that is not in your group.

  • As always, we cannot allow any eating or drinking in our fields, including sampling of produce while picking. We know this is especially hard for kids, but it is for the safety of everyone who visits, so please keep an eye on your little ones.

we cannot accommodate any groups larger than 8 people.

 

No buses, RVs,

or other large vehicles are allowed at our farm.

How it Works

ARRIVAL: Upon entering the farm, you'll first stop at the farm store window to pick up a harvest map, pay the entry fee, and either purchase containers or have your own weighed. The map tells you what's ready for picking, prices, rules and where to find everything. If you arrive with any produce from another farm inside your vehicle, please inform us before entering our orchard. We will hold it for you in store while you pick, in order to avoid charging you for it upon checkout.

 

CONTAINERS: Due to COVID-19 restrictions this year, we cannot allow you to bring your own containers. We have several sizes of containers available for purchase at the check-in window.

 

DRIVING: You will drive your own vehicle into the orchard, but the roads can be bumpy, muddy and uneven. Park near your desired picking area and walk into fields. Please use common sense to avoid driving and walking over living plants. We have signs throughout the orchard pointing you in the right direction for each item currently available for picking, as well as exit signs. Speed limit is 10 mph. Farm vehicles and pedestrians always have the right of way.

PICKING: Our harvest map lists all currently available produce w/ prices per pound. We ask that you please only pick what you intend to pay for, and please do not pick anything NOT listed on the map, as those items still need time to grow. Anything picked that is not listed will be charged up to $10/lb.

 

CHECK OUT: You'll stop at the farm store before exiting the farm to pay for what you've picked. Pickings will be weighed by a cashier and paid for inside the farm store. You'll find additional produce and farm treats for sale in our store, including homemade hard ice cream and apple cider donuts! All cars will be manually inspected before leaving

PAYMENT: We gladly accept cash and all major credit cards. We do not accept checks.

 

The entrance to PYO closes at 4:00pm.

All fields must be cleared and guests checked out by 5pm.

 

All PYO produce is priced per pound. Prices may fluctuate throughout the season.

Stay hydrated! We recommend bringing water, or you can purchase it in our store, as well as homemade apple cider and other beverages.

All bags will be searched & all vehicles will be inspected upon checkout. (This is why). Unfortunately, produce theft is a major issue.

You will be charged up to $10/lb for any produce you pick that is not listed as available on the harvest map OR produce that is not brought out of your vehicle to be weighed.

You Should Know

Frequently Asked Questions

Is your farm organic?


No, it's not organic. We have a small area outside of our PYO farm where we're trying out organic apple trees, but for the majority of our farm we follow low-spray & IPM* practices. *Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the management of agricultural and horticultural pests that minimizes the use of chemicals and emphasizes natural and low-toxicity methods (such as the use of crop rotation and beneficial predatory insects). The goal of IPM is not necessarily to eradicate or eliminate pests, but to strengthen and stabilize the landscape (ecosystem) so that conditions are favorable for plants but unfavorable for pests.




Should I wash my produce before I eat it?


Yes. This is always a good practice, no matter where you get your produce from! Please remember you must also pay for all produce before eating it.




Are you pet-friendly?


Unfortunately, no. We love our furry friends and yours, but it is against FEDERAL regulation to allow any pets on our farm, especially near picking fields where they can contaminate our produce that we work very hard to grow. Therefore, please leave your pets at home or we won't be able to let you in.
