Weekday U-Pick: Sunflowers, Peaches & Concord Grapes

Monday, August 19th-Friday, August 23rd | no admission/u-pick fee on weekdays

Peach Pricing: $2.75/lb | $25 - peck (11 lbs) | $39 - 1/2 bushel (22 lbs) | $65 - bushel (44 lbs)

Grape Pricing: $2.95/lbs (BOGO u-pick)

Sunflower Pricing: $1.50-$4/stem

Nothing says summer like fresh peaches, concord grapes, and sunflowers. Our peaches are holding strong for at least this week, so take advantage of our Coral Star peaches - a beautiful freestone yellow peach that stores well and is wonderful for canning and great for eating. Our concord grapes are also plentiful and beautiful, so our BOGO u-pick concord grape sale continues all week. While you’re loading up on fruit, pick a gorgeous bouquet of sunflowers to brighten up any room. Bring your family out for lots of great picking adventures with a whole lot of orchard summer fun.

Walking is allowed on weekdays for u-pick sunflowers and concord grapes. The only way to access the peach orchard is through our hayride. There is no charge for the hayride during the week, and the hayride will go out to the peaches on the half hour every hour (9:30am, 10:30am, 11:30am, etc.).

Apple Barn Produce

The Apple Barn is stocked with the freshest produce and this week, we have a variety that’s perfect for your table and bellies:

concord grapes (upon special order), peaches (2nds available as well), bell peppers, corn, and squash.
