We are now open Thursday through Monday (Closed Tuesday and Wednesday)

We have a great apple crop! We are currently picking the following apple varieties: Gala, Golden Supreme, McIntosh, Lura Red, Jonathan, Golden Delicious, Calville Blanc.  Haralson apples will open Saturday Sept 22, along with most of the rest of the orchard.  Lots of apples for at least a couple more weekends!

Apples are "loose" this year due to the drought, they fall very easily.  Remember to set your basket down and use two hands to pick, one to steady the branch and one to pick the apple. 

The pumpkin patch is now open!

Sale on West Slope Peaches! 

Dolgo and Wickson Crab apples for jelly now available in the store.

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

 Jenkins Farms Apple Valley Orchard at 448 K Street just a few blocks from our farm. 

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

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.
