U-Pick Organic Apples at our Good Life Farm

'Liberty' available for U-Pick starting Friday, September 22nd at NOON!

We have a bumper crop of organic 'Liberty' apples on our trees- and this deep maroon variety is perfect for fresh eating and applesauce!  It gave our cider 'Workhorse' its reddish tint, and will bring a sweet pink to your sauces, crisps and crumbles.  In order to stock you up, we're offering U-Pick until they are gone!

Picking Organic Apples at Good Life Farm: A Guide

 

  • Check-in with the friendly staff inside the Cider House

  • Grab your map and your picking bags from the Cider House.. We’ll highlight the rows that are ready on your map.  Feel free to bring your own bags.

  • Wander out to the orchard with leisure and grace.

  • Look for the Orange Road Cone and the “Picking Here Now” sign- that’s where you should pick!

  • Pick only the apples you can reach from the ground.

  • USE TWO HANDS to pick the apples. Put one hand on the fruit and the other on the stem, then twist gently. A ripe apple should come off easily. Take care not to let others drop in the process.

  • Please take home all the fruit you pick. It’s delicious and nutritious! If it’s not quite ripe, just wait a few days.

  • Take your harvest to the friendly staff inside the Cider House and check-out.

  • Eat the fruit and enjoy!
