Please note: We've listed as much information here as we can find on hours and prices. But it's always a good idea to check with the farm before heading out, as many pick-your-own apple farms have sometimes unpredictable crop yields and changes to their schedule! It's also a good idea to take cash, as some farms don't accept credit cards.
