Once Fall arrives I get very much in the mood for apple picking. Nothing like fresh apples off the tree! I researched the various picking farms in the area and found that a lot of them would come out costly. What with the entrance fee, picking fee and sometimes fees for other activities, it ends up adding up to a pretty penny. Apple Dave’s charges an entrance fee of $5 per person and then only charges for the apples you pick. Bags are sold at the entrance gate ($1 peck bag, $2 for half bushel bag). The bags can be shared with multiple people. At the end, if the bag is full, the only charge is $18 for a peck bushel bag or $34 for a half bushel bag. If the bag is not full they do not charge the full amount, they prorate it according to how much was in it.
The flat bed tractor that brings everyone out into the orchard is lots of fun to ride (included in the entrance fee). We were even able to take our stroller aboard. At Apple Dave’s they allow you to enjoy apples in the orchard while you pick. There is a great variety of types of apples to choose from Macintosh, Cortland, to Red Delicious, and many more types.
There is the Country Store and other cute shops at the farm. Picnic tables are found outdoors near the shops. You can enjoy a picnic in the beautiful outdoor area. The puppet show and other fun activities keep the children entertained.
