When & Where:
We opened the orchards for Pick Your Own starting in the summer of 2015. Both the apple and peach orchard are located at 7786 Steinsburg Road in Coopersburg.
Pick Your Own occurs from August through October from 9:00am-4:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays. We are currently closed for the season.
Pick Your Own Peaches:
This past year, we started the weekend of August 6th with Blazingstar yellow peaches, Red Haven yellow peaches and White Lady white peaches. We had yellow peaches all through August, with a few varieties of white peaches and nectarines available at times. Our latest variety of peaches ripened in early September, so we still had some peaches when the apples came in.
Pick Your Own Apples:
Our apples start ripen around the last week in August or first week in September. Gala is the earliest variety to ripen, but all 14 varieties will ripen within the months of September and October. We will post on the home page what is ready to be picked each week. When the fall weather is not cooperating for Pick Your Own, we open up the pack house, also located at 7786 Steinsburg Road, so you can pick your own out of the bins that we have already picked (or if you are brave, you are still welcome to bear the elements and pick yourself).
We also use some of our delicious apples to make excellent cider! We press and bottle it into half gallons and full gallons available for sale at a reasonable price at Pick Your Own.
Peaches, nectarines and apples are sold by the pound at an excellent price. You are welcome to bring your own container, just be sure to get it weighed before you start picking. Reusable containers are also available for purchase.
We’ll see you in 2017!
