Pick Your Own Apples at Apple Castle!
Start a family tradition at Apple Castle with Pick Your Own Apples! Experience the joy of apple picking from start to finish: start with the scent of apples in the air, and scan the panorama of color in the trees. Then experience the thrill of the snap of a stem popping off the branch, the weight of the apple in your hand and the exhilaration of biting into a sweet bundle of juiciness right off the tree.
Pick Your Own is offered on Saturdays from the second Saturday of September through the third Saturday of October, as well as Labor Day and Columbus Day at the Apple Castle from 10 am to 3 pm. Dates for 2017 are September 4, 9, 16, 23, and 30, and October 7, 9, 14, and 21.
