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.
