Picking your own fruit at Branstool Orchards

Please observe all rules for the benefit of all of our customers and our orchard.

Pick your own hours are Monday-Saturday 9-5 and Sunday 10-4. You must enter the orchard to pick at least one hour before we close to ensure you have enough time to pick and return to make your purchase.

Always check in at the market, get instructions from an employee, and get a picking peck box or bag before heading into the orchard. 

Please pick only in designated areas, which are carefully selected based on the ripening schedule of our fruit.

We provide peck boxes for picking peaches and they hold 10-15 pounds of fruit. We provide bags for apples that hold about 10 pounds and another that holds about 20 pounds. Peaches, apples & pears  are $1.75 per pound  and you must purchase at least $10 worth to pick your own or be charged the difference.  

Wear appropriate clothing for the weather, don’t forget hats, sunscreen, and a bottle of water!

We recommend wearing close-toed shoes good for walking on uneven ground, as bees, hornets and yellow jackets may be present on fallen fruit.

If you drop any fruit on the ground, we ask that you please make every effort to pick it up and purchase it so that no fruit is wasted. Many labor-intensive hours go into the care of our fruit trees.

Children must be accompanied by an adult and stay very close by at all times.

Please dispose of trash in proper containers.

Please be considerate of all of our customers.

Please do not drive into the orchard as it is a fragile growing environment.

Dogs are permitted if on a leash and not aggressive.
