Ready for the ride into the orchard at Milburn OrchardFor many families throughout the region, a trip to the orchard has become a family tradition!

Your family adventure begins with a free wagon ride into the orchards, and each family is given as many picking bags as you need. All our apple trees are dwarf trees and grown so that the fruit is reachable from the ground, otherwise known as a “pedestrian orchard”. We have many varieties of apples throughout the season…check the chart below for the approximate dates that your favorites usually become available.

Be sure you bring your camera for some photo memories you will long treasure!
