Pick your own apples

Apple_picking.jpg

You may have to reach a little.

2011 Update: We've put together a much more extensive listing and map of pick-your-own apple orchards in the Capital Region.

Apples are here!!! McIntosh and all your other favs. If picking your own is your thing, here's where to go.

(If you're lazy, like us, they'll also sell you the already-picked variety.)

Can't wait to apple picking!! One of my favorite things about this time of the year.

I'm all for Goold's, but people are trying to sway me to go to Beaumont Orchards (sp?) this year ... Suggestions?

I have to say, I am super excited about going to Goold's this year!

Schoharie County orchards did not make the list:

Sharon Orchards in Sharon Springs off of Rt 20.

Schilde's in Sharon Springs (heading toward Canajoharie) Rt 145.

Boeringer's in Middleburgh Rt 30.

Barber's Middleburgh Rt 30.

Cobleskill has a great farmer's market "downtown" at Main and Union on Saturday mornings.

Also the former Carrot Barn in Schoharie, Main St.

Thank you AOA for this awesome list!

Anyone know where/when I can pick Gala apples. They're the only ones I really like but I've never arrived when they are the ones being picked.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
