Ripening dates can vary depending on the growing season so it’s best to call ahead for availability.
If you’re short on time or prefer to buy your apples already picked, we have several varieties available in our retail store. They can be purchased pre-bagged or you can bag your own from our bins of fresh picked apples.
We typically have over ten different varieties to choose from throughout the apple season. You can “try before you buy” at our sample table. We offer many new varieties, along with the old favorites you grew up with, so you are sure to find just what you are looking for.
While in the store, be sure to pick up some of our homemade caramel apples, made fresh daily with Ecker’s Gourmet Caramel.
Choose from caramel, peanut, M&M, toffee or sprinkles. We use McIntosh, Cortland, Honeycrisp, Sweet 16, and Fireside throughout the season.
Gift Idea: Ask about a Rock Ridge Orchard gift certificate. What a perfect way to let somebody experience a day on the farm or pick something yummy from the store.
