Protect Yourself + Others



New York State Law requires visitors to WEAR A MASK at all times.


 MAINTAIN 6 FEET SOCIAL DISTANCING.  Parents must keep their children with them at all times.


 NO DOGS are allowed in our orchards, playground area or farm market. Only leashed dogs are allowed on our outside patio and parking lot area.


 NO CARS allowed at any time. Guests with special needs must make a reservation in advance--and we suggest mid-week visits.


 LARGE GROUPS  must make a reservation in advance


 WASH YOUR HANDS before and after picking fruit.


 STAY HYDRATED AND WEAR APPROPRIATE CLOTHING.  It's very hot in the fields. Have safe.


 PLEASE DO NOT EAT WITHOUT PAYING FOR FRUIT.  It's dishonest and unhealthy since our fruit it sprayed.

Protect Our Farm


DO NOT PICK UNRIPE FRUIT...IT HARMS THE TREE.  An apple is ripe when you twist it and it easily comes off the branch. 


ONLY PICK IN DESIGNATED AREAS. Only pick what is readily available.
