that here at Shelburne Orchards, you can pick your own (PYO) fruit – apples, sour cherries, peaches, and table grapes.
As you can imagine, they all ripen at different times so we’ll keep you posted as they are ready for picking.
PYO apple prices are as follows:
* $2.00/lb for Ginger Gold, Mcoun, Mutzu, * $2.50/lb for Honey Crisp, Norther Spy, Russets and Pippins. * $1.50/lb. for all other apples. * PYO sour cherries are $6/lb and you’ll need to bring your own containers (baskets or buckets are best so that they don’t get mushy).
* PYO peaches are $3/lb.
* PYO Marsette table grapes are $6/lb.

We have a limited number of heirloom varieties so please feel free to stop by and see what’s ripe. Heirlooms tend to ripen mid to late October.
Feel free to sit at a picnic table as you gaze out over the lake, purchase a cider doughnut from our Cider House Farm Market, or take the kids down to our Tractor Petting Zoo!
We’re typically open from late August until late October, but that may change so please check first. We’d hate to have you disappointed.
