MR APPLES ORCHARD // HIGH FALLS

A low spray & organic style orchard.  This means very little chemical are used which results in a more natural flavor.

Pick your own apples and get away for a quiet day in the Country in Highfalls.  Since the apples are low spray they aren't as pretty as pesticide induced orchards.  These apples however are much healthier and taste better than most other apples!  Mr Apples only charges $20 for an all you can fill large bag, and 12$ for small size bag.  No hour limit so you can spend all day picking for the perfect apples (Granny's Smith, Gold and Delicious etc...)

You can pick apples from August until November. Macintosh varieties start in early September. Cortlands have a juicy flavor that is crunchingly refreshing. Pears are finished by mid-September. September is a popular apple picking month through October.

October is the perfect month for Red Delicious &  their famous "Russet" Golden Delicious.

Their farm is located in Highland, NY and is open all weekends in September and October 10am-6pm (during the week by appointment).

Billiam was voted,
