ATTENTION: We are now fully booked until the end of the year. Sorry. Please check back next year.
This year due to Covid-19 we will not be doing apple cider making due to the inability to social distance. We are open daily for groups that are together. We will only do a group a week. We do not do individuals or small families, sorry. We wil be requiring people to wear a mask and maintain social distancing while in the orchard.
This year we will have our own small cookbook available for sale for only $5 each. Inside are our own recipes including the first place apple days pie recipe from 2015 and second place from 2009. Don't forget to bring cash to buy one for yourself!
It is CASH ONLY!
Apples and Art Orchards- for groups that pick 20 or more bags only
is a U-Pick apple orchard where for only $12 you can pick a "half peck of apples" which is about 5 pounds and spend a fabulous afternoon in our beautiful mountain orchard and charming gold-rush era town - Julian, California. Our apples are pesticide free and all natural - they have never been sprayed. Our soil has not been contaminated with pesticides or weed killers either.
The apples are not perfect like store apples - ours are pesticide free and have never been sprayed, so there may be spots or tiny holes.
In addition to taking home your apples, you get apple facts, a tour of the orchard, and your own free apple cider making and tasting experience for groups of 20 or more bags picked.
A deposit of $60 is required up front to hold the reservation two weeks before the date.
