Visitor Guidelines

We’re glad you are visiting us here at Apple Holler! Here are some tips to help you make the most of your visit.

  1. Our orchards are non-smoking, no tobacco facilities. This includes electronic/vapor cigarettes and chewing tobacco. Smoking is not permitted ANYWHERE on our property. Yes, this includes parking lots and all outdoor areas!
  2. The use of drugs is not permitted on our property.
  3. No outside alcohol is permitted on our property. You may purchase wine and beer to consume at Apple Holler from the Gift Shop or other kiosks on our property.
  4. The orchard is private property; all grounds, buildings, and roads are open to the public only during our posted hours.
  5. Dress properly! Apple Holler is a working farm, and the ground can be uneven. Depending on the weather, it may be dusty, muddy, slick, etc. Proper footwear is important, close-toed shoes are recommended.
  6. Sunscreen is always a good idea.
  7. Help us keep our orchards clean and safe. Trash cans are provided; please put litter in its proper place.
  8. We love dogs too, but we recommend leaving your pets at home. We often have large crowds; some pets don’t do well around strangers and keep in mind that while many people love pets, many also do not.  Do not leave your pet in the car. Keeping in mind the safety and well-being of your pet, it’s best to leave him/her at home because we do not allow them here at Apple Holler.
  9. You are responsible for paying for everything you pick—please watch your children!
  10. Please respect our private property, and only pick in areas that are open. Not all fruit is ripe at the same time!
  11. All fruit and merchandise must be paid for PRIOR to putting it in your car. Please keep your receipt handy—we reserve the right to check them in the parking lots. We will prosecute any and all thefts.
  12. For safety, climbing of trees is not permitted.
  13. Do not throw fruit, or put any on the ground. If you pick it, it must go in your bag, and you must pay for it.
  14. Please stay clear of tractors, farm equipment, or any other moving vehicles.
  15. Using one hand to hold the branch, use your forefinger and thumb to gently turn fruit upward till it releases. (Pulling will cause other fruit to fall and destroy flower buds for next year’s crop)
