Opening Friday, August 30, 2019

Important Update.  We will open for Pick Your Own apples on Friday, August 30.  We have had a good year for water with lots of rain, but also some hail, so there are some apples that shows cosmetic marks and small dents.  We like to remind people that the experience of picking your own apples is more important than how "pretty" the apples are, and they still have that fresh Penrose apple taste!  The pumpkin patch is growing very nicely and will be open about September 15.







While you are in Penrose, you may also want to visit:

Degenhart Orchard at 955 3rd Street, next door to Third Street Apples, sells apples in boxes and bags from their tent on the roadside.  Same great Penrose apples as grown in our orchard.

 Also, Happy Apple Farm nearby at 1st and K Street has apples, cider and a pumpkin patch.  www.happyapplefarm.com

For lunch try the Gooseberry Patch or the Coyote Coffee Den and Michelle's, all on Highway 115 in Penrose.




For Your Safety and Enjoyment

Please remember that you are visiting a working farm with some inherent  hazards and risks. Prepare you and your children for an outdoor experience.  You may not want to wear open-toed sandals or flip-flops since the ground is uneven and there may be insects and bees and even thorny plants. Sunscreen may be useful.  If you or your children have allergies (such as to bees and wasps) come prepared.  Be aware that there are many small irrigation ditches, irrigation pipe, hoses and irrigation tubing to avoid falls.  Pay close attention overhead while you are picking apples as it is easy to bump your head on a branch or poke yourself on a twig. Do not climb trees or allow your children to climb trees. Stay away from idle farm machinery at the back of the orchard.  Be cautious near the road and parking areas since some drivers might be thinking about....apples!  Be safe and have fun.
