Not all orchards are created equal. At Eden Acres Family Farm, we have over 30 varieties of unique and flavorful heirloom apples that are ready beginning in August and continue into November. As stewards of a carefully balanced holistic environment, we do not offer Pick-Your-Own (PYO). Instead, we offer you a tasting experience of the currently ripe and flavorful varieties at the farm store. Come taste what makes our apples different and enjoy a taste of raw organic cider while you’re here!
Seasonally, we are open Monday through Friday by appointment and Saturday & Sunday from 9 am – 5 pm.
Beginning in late August: Lodi, Williams Pride, and Paula Red
Early to Mid September: McIntosh and Cortland
Late September: Macoun
October: Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, and Baldwin
Other varieties ripening throughout the season include: Empire, Melrose, Northern Spy, Sweet Sixteen, Vartanian Lightning, Zabergau Reinette, Maiden’s Blush, Winter Blush, Belle de Boskoop, Hudson’s Golden Gem, Honeygold, Granspur, Keepsake, Red St. Lawrence, Arkansas Black, King of Tompkins County, Black Oxford, Ginger Gold, Gravenstein, and Alexander.
