Please note that while some of the following varieties would be considered antique, they are open to the general public and we do not charge a premium or schedule appointments to pick the apples listed on our PYO General Orchard page.
If you wish to participate in the picking of our antique apples not open to the general public, please Register to receive notifications by filling out the form at this link Antique Apple Distribution List
Each week, we will notify you of the apples that we have to pick on Saturday and Sunday between 9:00 and 10:30 am. Please bring cash ($35 per 1/2 bushel) if you wish to pick. Antique PYO shuts down at 11:00 am as we have to attend to our other customers. There is no need to make an appointment. Simply show up, park and ask for Emmett.
Over a period of approximately 9 weeks you will be receiving a weekly email informing you of the unique or antique varieties of apples that we grow that are ready to pick together with the standard varieties available a the same time. Cash Only – Sorry.
Please do not email us about varieties not designated as being ready to pick as I do not have time available to respond to all of my emails during harvest season. Additionally, like the weather, apples ripen at different times each year so I do not post dates for when a certain variety will be available.
All Apples – Standard Year Projected Picking Date
Not all trees bear fruit annually.
Some trees are not yet bearing.
Some varieties are reserved solely for our hard cider operations and are noted on the attached list.
Some trees are very unpredictable and inclined to various diseases which are why they are not always grown commercially.
If you do not get an email about a certain variety you can be assured that the tree did not bear fruit or that the quality was inferior or that the quantity of fruit did not justify noting as available. We generally only have a few trees of each variety so quantity is always limited.
