We are winding down our apple picking for this season. It has been a great year, and we’ve seen hundreds of people pick here so far. At the moment we have a few Golden Delicious, a few Cortland and a few Mutsu left.
We’ve picked apples ourselves, of course, and you can always buy already picked apples at our store and at the Charles Town and Sehpherdstown Farmers Markets.
At Ridgefield Farm our apple trees are grafted on dwarf root stock and trained on trellises in rows, which makes apples easy to pick for visitors young and old, short and tall. Each year we even have folks picking from their wheelchairs.
Whether you are a returning customer or new to the experience, the fun of picking your own fresh apples is not to be missed.
