The Buzz
  • FACE MASKS MANDATORY ON THE FARM
  • CHILDREN MUST BE DIRECTLY WITH OR NEXT TO AN ADULT AT ALL TIMES
Apple picking now open!

Please be patient with us as we adapt to the restrictions of this unprecedented time and work to keep all visitors and staff safe. No reservations are necessary, just your mask and willingness to wear it! 
The major changes this year are as follows: 
  • Masks required at all times on farm property.
  • Limited access to store - please keep your numbers down.
There will be changes along the way - hopefully only for the better! Apples are picked fresh for the store every day. If you are planning to go out picking, please read below and here for important info about Pick-Your-Own with the new state regulations. 

MANDATORY PYO RULES:

MASKS ARE REQUIRED; always wear your mask  while in the harvest area. Do not remove unless in an emergency.

EATING/SNACKING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED; do not put food into your mouth when anywhere near the vicinity of the harvest area. Take your produce home to enjoy it.

CHILDREN MUST BE WITHIN ARM’S REACH AT ALL TIMES. Parents: do not bring more children to the harvest area than you can reasonably supervise. We know kids have been cooped up and they just want to run and play, but a food harvest area is not the place to let them run amok. Plan accordingly so all children in your group are with an adult.

FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THESE RULES WILL RESULT IN YOUR BEING ASKED TO LEAVE. We know these are strict regulations but unfortunately, they are necessary for the safety and continued well-being of all who work at or visit the farm.


  • Senior hour in the store: 8:30-9:30 AM.
  • In-store physical barriers and six-foot separations delineated throughout the retail space.
  • Limited number of people inside the store at one time.
  • Picnic tables and benches have been removed. Please no picnics, blankets, or chairs. 
  • Access to animal enclosures is limited.
