Planning a Visit

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: We recommend bringing your own containers and/or bags for picking, but we have several sizes of containers and reusable bags available for purchase at the check-in window. When checking in, please have the cashier weigh your containers so we can subtract the weight from what you pick at the end. 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 the 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 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 vehicles & bags will be manually inspected before leaving. PAYMENT: We gladly accept cash and all major credit cards. We do not accept checks.




Important things to know before visiting


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




PYO Rules


  • No dogs or other pets allowed in the orchard. Any guest with a pet in vehicle will be denied entry. We love animals, but it's a federal regulation!
  • This is a working farm with machinery in use. By entering, you agree to pick at your own risk.
  • You're required to pay for all produce in your vehicle, whether you found it on the ground or it was picked by anyone in your party, including kids.
  • All produce must be paid for before eating it.
  • No alcohol or smoking anywhere on property, including the parking lot.
  • No BBQs, picnics, cooking, or fire of any kind. There are picnic tables available outside our farm store once you've paid for your pickings.
  • Do not enter barns, greenhouses, houses or sheds.
  • We cannot accept returns or refunds for PYO produce. It can't be un-picked, and we can't resell it. Please only pick what you intend to pay for.
  • No climbing on ladders, trees or farm vehicles.
  • Do not shake or brake branches, or throw, dump, damage, or waste any produce. We work hard to grow it!
  • PLEASE, no littering. Trash bins are located throughout the orchard.
  • Anyone unwilling to follow the above rules will be asked to leave immediately.




COVID


  • Our farm store staff members wear face masks.
  • We recommend wearing a face mask inside our store if you are not vaccinated.
  • Please stay home if you don't feel well.





Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is your farm organic?

A: No, it's not organic. We have a small area outside of our PYO farm where we're growing 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.

Q: Should I wash my produce before I eat it?

A: 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.
 

Q: Can I bring my dog?

A: Due to health & safety regulations, no pets are allowed to enter our farm.
 

Q: Can we have a picnic there?

A: Again due to health & safety regulations, eating is also not allowed on our farm. Therefore, picnics are not permitted. Once you checkout and pay for your produce, you're welcome to park and use our picnic tables near the farm store.

Q: Do you have bathrooms?

A: Yes. We have two bathrooms available inside our farm store, as well as several port-a-potties throughout the orchard.

Q: Do you offer hay rides?

A: No, we do not offer hay rides at this time.
