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
THERE ARE NO FIRES OR SMOKE ANYWHERE NEAR OUR FARM.  THE ROADS ARE ALL CLEAR.  IT IS SUNNY & BEAUTIFUL & 10 TO 15 DEGREES COOLER THAN IT IS IN THE VALLEY.  Open Tues - Thurs from 10am to 2:30pm for apple picking and country store only.  Same on Fridays, but
we stay open until 3:30 pm.

Saturdays and Sundays - 10am to 4pm - must check in for apple picking before 3:30 pm.  Cider press shuts down by 3pm or sometimes sooner.    Apples are $3.25 per pound.  Limited quantities of berry picking on Friday and Saturday, until they are picked out.  Berries are $5.25 per pint.  Weekend activities:  archery, tomahawk, and knife throw - $2 each activity for several tries.  Cider pressing is $20 per gallon.  Cider shuts down at three.  It develops a waiting list rather quickly, so if you'd like to make cider, please arrive early & buy your ticket right away in our store.  There is no entrance fee.  No appointment necessary.

Current apple varieties are Early Red Fuji (weekdays only), Fuji, Spartan, and McIntosh.  Varieties subject to change without notice if we get picked out of a variety or a new one becomes ready to pick.  We try to keep this info current, but we do get rather swamped - info is current as of 9/7/16 as far as the apple types go.

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.

Hope to see you on the farm very soon!
