Gravenstein apples are still available.

Although it is late in the season, there are about 200 lbs on the trees. They are smaller than last week, but these are the sweetest Gravenstein apples I have ever eaten and will make some great applesauce.
End of season special-----50 cents/lb u-pick.

What's Ripe Now?

We are having a great apple season! The apples are bountiful and taste excellent. We have enjoyed getting to meet all the new customers that have come this year, and seeing our old friends from previous years.

It's not too late to pick Gravenstein or Akane. They are beautiful! Gravenstein is an old traditional variety, introduced in 1797. Akane is a newer variety, introduced in 1937. Akane are delicious for fresh eating. For more information, please see this website, which has an excellent description and short history of the Akane apple.
The Ida Red, Jonagold, Cox's Orange, and Melrose are ripening.

We hope to see you soon!


Thankyou for a great Honeycrisp season! As of today, we are SOLD OUT of Honeycrisp!

Apple Prices

We have kept the same price for u-pick as last year; 70 cents per lb. We pick is 90 cents per lb, unless you buy a box; then it is 85 cents per lb.
We are at the Silverton Farmer's Market every Saturday, selling Honeycrisp apples at $2/lb.
Akane and Gravenstein are sold at $1.49/lb.
This is our first year of Honeycrisp. They are a delightful apple.
The Gravenstein trees have a large crop and are a favorite for apple sauce, pie, and crisp. Akane continue to be a favorite fresh eating apple.
