Pick-your-own apple harvest
We love it when the nights begin to cool and it starts to feel like fall! Fall is a special time, from the changing colors of nature to the start of the new school year, it brings back so many fun, nostalgic feelings. On the farm, fall is when all the hard work that goes into our orchards throughout the year begins to show the literal fruits of our labor, and with it, fresh, straight-from-the-tree apples. We want to invite you all back to our farm to experience what it is like to harvest your own fruit off of the trees. If you have ever picked an apple and eaten it in the orchard, then you know that apples always, ALWAYS taste better picked straight from the tree.
When to Come
The year we will start our pick-your-own apple harvest on September 3. We will continue the harvest every Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 7 pm through September. Apple varieties will change as they ripen and the harvest season progresses.
Come and park at Rowley’s Red Barn. Grab your camera and walk to the large tent on the west side of the road…you can’t miss it! Here you will learn a little about harvesting fruit so that you don’t damage the fruit or the trees as you pick. We will provide boxes and bags.
We will have our large jump pad out in the orchard for the kids to play on while you pick, or after, while you relax in the orchard.
All of our fall treats, including our famous, freshly made apple cider donuts, award-winning ice cream, and fresh apple cider slushies will be available at the barn!
To ensure your visit is enjoyable and successful we suggest you do the following:
- Dress for the weather. Temperatures can vary greatly in the early fall months, be prepared with jackets/coats and water.
- Bring your photography equipment. Don’t forget to tag us in your posts!
- Respect the orchards. Please don’t climb the trees, throw fruit, damage irrigation systems or in any other way mistreat our beautiful apple orchards. Remember that this is our livelihood!
