There are NO CARS allowed in the orchard as we strive to offer a fun and safe environment for all our guests. Please do not trespass on unmarked property, farm equipment and do NOT pick in non-designated areas.
Our fruit is sprayed, so please do not eat from the fields and pay for what you've picked!!
