Each variety of apple is available for fresh picking for about two weeks. Any fresh apple is great to eat and every variety has its own unique flavor and texture. Pick one right off the tree and taste what makes each apple distinct. Pick your own and you will clearly taste the difference!

When you plan your outing to our orchard, take advantage of our front-yard quality grassy areas. All apple trees are dwarf trees so no sticks or poles needed! Bring a picnic basket, bug spray and flat shoes.You may also want a suncreen or sunhat. This is an on-farm experience.

Stop in our garden gift shop for other culinary treats, gifts and more. We have crisp mix, soup mixes, jellies, jams salsas and seasonal beers. We carry local honey also. Our gift shop also offers Nebraska-made pies, wines and Vodka. And we will have handmade caramel apples in September! Make your selections to take with you or enjoy them while you pick fruit in the orchard!

For guided tours, please call us to schedule a time and date.

Fall is also a great time to finish your last-minute hardscaping project. We carry many different types and sizes of decorative rock, flagstone, boulders, stepping stones and edging.

You can also plant many different trees, shrubs and perennials in the Fall. Stop in and view our selection and talk with one of our staff to plan your Fall garden!

Around Labor Day, we’ll be getting our bulbs and Mums in.
