There is a terrific selection of pick your own apples here. Really incredible variety! And if you want to learn more about apples, just ask. The owner is incredibly educated about apples, varieties, how to grow and care for them, etc. You'll learn so much. Didn't have the grapes but the smell of them was divine!

My sister lives in the Catskills and brings my mother and me here every year in the fall to stock up on apples and get our fill of New York grapes. These are not just any apples. The Wightmans are growing different varieties of apples, many of which are impossible to find in your average grocery store, and, if you... More

Apples, grapes, berries...John and Lori Wightman have a gorgeous hidden gem. Learn all about apple farming and have an experience of picking apples in the orchard. This is a quaint farm that has been in the family for many years. It is not an amusement park but a real, operating farm. Beautiful area.

It is great to have an apple farm nearby in our community, and the price they charge is less than I expected. I have gone back each Fall for the last 4 years, since I discovered them. If you live in the area, or are visiting, please come in and pick your own delicious apples.

What an experience? Drive up to a farm house and get to walk up to pick apples with the guidance of an apple specialist who tells you the history of apples, if you are interested. It is a fun educational field trip for the whole family. The owner, John, is an apple specialist, educated at Texas A & M. He... More

Honestly, I'd rather not tell you how great it this farm is!!! It's my best kept secret. And it is totally worth the 3 hour drive we make there from Long Island. Always uncrowded,with none of the bells and whistles, such as farm stands and bouncy castle, this place is almost a romantic getaway with beautiful views of the mountains... More

This was the second time my husband and I were at the orchard. John,the owner took time to explain the history of the property,and told us which apples were best to pick! The orchard is secluded and so peaceful! WE love it there so much! Go check it out if you are in the Kerhonkson area!!!!
