BAG-YOUR-OWN

We've been growing apples for years and change varieties regularly to satisfy the demands of our customers.  We listened when we heard our customers would like to bag-their-own apples.  1/2 peck, peck, 1/2 bushel, or bushel we've got it all! 

 

*The apples are already picked from the tree, but you can pick them from a bin!
