Apple Picking Tips

Pick the Perfect Apple

Apple picking is a fun activity that people of all ages can participate in. If this is your first time picking apples at Apple Holler, or even if you are a regular visitor who just needs to brush up on how to select the perfect apples, then read on as we share some of our favorite apple-picking tips with you.

Apple Holler is a working farm, so be sure to wear comfortable clothing. We also recommend wearing closed-toed shoes. Make sure to keep an eye on the weather report for Sturtevant, WI, and dress appropriately for the temperature. 

When you arrive at Apple Holler, purchase your apple-picking bag first. With your bag in hand, head over to our wagon ride station to take the next wagon ride out to the orchard where you will find over 30,000 dwarf fruit trees. Dwarf trees make it easier for anyone to pick apples at Apple Holler, with many branches close to the ground. Even young children can get in on the adventure!

Once in the orchard, a guide will direct you to what’s available for picking. Make sure you only pick apples in designated rows because you don’t want to pick unripe apples mistakenly. 

While in the orchard, we invite you to taste and eat as many apples as you like.
