A few words about u-picking: Specifically, we ask that folks learn how to pick without breaking off the blossom spurs; picking up those apples that fall when others are picked; and only picking from those apple trees that have been ribboned to indicate they are ripe. We will supply bags and picking poles. Also, please -- no eating while you pick!  We will gladly give you samples of our apples in the store.

But most important!  . . . You may not pick the fruit for the wonderful experience and then leave your bag.  You must return all picked fruit to the barn to be weighed and paid for.  Some people think we can sell the fruit they have picked  - but it doesn't work that way.  We can't glue them back on the tree!  So we have had to advise by signage and also verbally that not paying for all the apples you have picked is going to be considered theft. This doesn't happen very often and usually is the result of people who have eyes that are bigger than their wallet.  We can't afford to lose income this way, and it is discourteous to others who would like to pick and purchase those apples.  So, pick only what you want and pay for what you pick.  'Nuff said.

Riley's Apple Farm
Raspberries are ready for you to pick!  Blackberries, too!

Closed early due to excessive heat on 7/23/16.  We will reopen on Friday from 10am to appx 3pm.

We'll also be picking limited quantities of Gravenstein apples
this weekend!  Gravenstein is a farm favorite, and more will ripen on a daily basis.  Considered one of the best all-around apples, the Gravenstein has a crisp, slightly acidy, tart-sweet flavor and is juicy with a full apple aroma. The Gravenstein—which has been in cultivation for at least 350 years—just might be the perfect embodiment of a delicious “old-fashioned” apple.

The Gravenstein is not only tasty for eating out of hand but is excellent for baking and cooking. Use the Gravenstein to make the season’s first apple pies, sauce, and cider.

In the kitchen, the flavor of the Gravenstein actually intensifies when cooked. After you bake or cook a Gravenstein, you will still taste the Gravenstein flavor.

Blackberries will be ready soon, too!  Apples will be ready approximately the end of July or the beginning of August.  We'll post actual dates as soon as we know.

Remember, we are different from Riley's Farm, which is a completely separate business.  We are Riley's Apple Farm, located at 12201 S. Oak Glen Road, Yucaipa, CA, 92399.  Our phone number is 909-797-4061 or toll free 866-585-6407.

We are located 2 driveways north of Riley's Farm.  There is a red apple cutout that sits on top of our farm sign.  The apple has a #1 on it.  That's a great landmark to use.

Raspberries are $5.00 per pint.  Apples are $3 per pound.  Hope to see you on the farm very soon!
