2016 PYO Apple Season is Over

Last Day for Picking Saturday October 15th  —  No Apple Picking Sunday

We will have Extremely Limited Picking of Apples which may included Baldwin  Granny Smith, Golden Russet,  Golden Delicious,  Roxbury Russetts and limited others.   Because of the drought, many are small but if you have the patience there are still apples to pick at least at the start of the day.

For people that want easy picking or have high expectations we strongly recommend one of the orchards listed below.

Consider picking apples this weekend at Nicewitz Family Farm located at 116 Sawyer Road, Bolton, MA just 2 miles past the winery. It is the 3rd road on the left.  Click here for more information about Nicewicz Family Farm

Another local Farm for picking apples this weekend at Bolton Spring Farms located at 159 Main Street (Route 117), Bolton, MA Bolton Spring Farm is located 1.5 miles past the Route 495 access ramps, east(heading towards Stow) on Route 117. They are cash only but also have a great country store.  Click here for more information about Bolton Spring Farm

For pre-picked fresh local apples, fresh local apple cider, sandwiches and more visit the great family owned farm stand of Bolton Orchards.    Click here for more information about Bolton Orchards

For great fun, consider a visit to Schartner Farm located 279 West Berlin Road, Bolton MA.  Click here for more information about  Schartner Family Farm While the Schartner Farm is out of apples, they have a great Maze and Hay Rides. Located just 2 miles from the winery, take the second right after the winery onto West Berlin Road and travel about 1.5 miles to Schartner Farm.

Availability – Check the website and save time

During the harvest season, July through October, our website is updated daily and often hourly to post the fruit and the varieties that we will be picking that day. The fruit that we are picking are monitored by our orchard manager and he also is responsible for keeping our website up to date with the most accurate conditions on each type of fruit to be picked.

Since weather conditions differ dramatically from year to year; predictions or estimates are often inaccurate so we refrain from predicting ripening dates.  We all know that we are unable to predict weather so I have also learned over the years that I cannot predict the date fruit will be available.

Additionally, we do not project how long we will be picking a particular variety because, like the weather, I have no way of knowing how many people will come out to pick at any given time and therefore cannot predict how long we will have a variety available for picing.  I hope that everyone can appreciate that farming is not manufacturing and we are subject to many variables over which we have no control .

When a new variety is opened up, usually they last for at least a few days and often a week.    If you want farm fresh products you have to understand that it takes a little effort to get the best fruit money can buy.

If you look at our web-site prior to you visit,  you will not be disappointed. The information on our web-site is as accurate as it gets and is much more accurate than any information you may receive over the phone.  When conditions change, the first thing done is to update information on the website as it is not usually possible to broadcast the information to all staff members during busy season. In fact, we always advise our staff to look at the web-site before answering any questions about current picking conditions.

Picking conditions will be updated Daily at 9:30 am for the current day’s picking conditions. We open at 11:00 am. Please do not call before 9:30 am as our staff does not have any information which is not posted on this site. Thanks

Please do not email us requesting information about the availability of fruit tomorrow or in the future as we do not have the ability to predict how many people will pick fruit today and therefore cannot accurately assess the availability of fruit tomorrow. Conditions change quickly, so please use our website as the most accurate assessment of picking conditions.
