Pick Your Own Apples & Pumpkins at Mead Orchards | Kids Out and About Albany

Pick Your Own Apples & Pumpkins at Mead Orchards

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 10/27/2019
Weekends in late August, September and October, you may come to the farm and pick your own juicy apples! Many varieties are available as they ripen throughout the harvest season. Starting in mid-September, we have several varieties of pumpkins.

There is no entrance fee for Pick-Your-Own. Strawberry, Blueberry, and Cherry pickers will find containers and will pay at the tents in the orchards. For Peaches and Apples, pickers will stop at our farm stand near the barn to pick up containers and get directions, and then drive up into the orchards. You'll pay for your U-Pick items at the farm stand. You may also park and walk -- just keep in mind there are some hills, and fruit can be heavy to carry.

PLEASE PICK ONLY the items we have selected to offer for Pick-Your-Own on each weekend. These are the items that are ripe and available to pick.

Our Farm Stand is open from Late JULY through OCTOBER, on WEEKENDS ONLY, DURING U-PICK HOURS. Here we have more already-picked fruit and vegetables in season: peaches, pears, plums, berries, and many varieties of apples. Plus vegetables, including  tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, greens, broccoli, cauliflower, corn, eggplant, summer and winter squashes, and pumpkins. In addition, we usually have our own honey, apple cider, tomato sauce, and homemade jams.

Because our Farm Stand / U-Pick operation is seasonal and rustic, we have no concession stand, and no running water, and our bathroom "facilities" are limited: "porta pottys" (with hand-washing). So please be prepared, and SMILE!  And, if you're thinking of bringing a large group, PLEASE call Beth Mead at 845-756-5641 or 845-756-2526 to see about making arrangements ahead of time. Thanks!
