The apple orchard was really pretty d well maintain I go very late in apple picking season, so a lot of trees were already bare from fruit BUT there were plenty to pick from, you just had to walk a little bit! I get great selection of really delicious apples! The store was disappointing. Shelves were kind of bare and the restroom was terribly dirty, BUT they had out houses that were more clean. BUT overall I have to say go and check it out! I go on Monday am and it was super quiet, especially since we were late in the season. They do follow covid regulations, so it is good we were invited here by my hunny's brother and girlfriend. This was their first time using Apple picking, BUT not ours. Albeit, Apple Dave's was not our favorite orchard we still manage to have a great time. Mainly because of great company and contagious laughter spread throughout our group. Try to get here early because they were pretty packed by the time we arrived, which was around 1: 45pm. I didn't realize they close at 5pm. Also, they're only open on weekend, Saturday & Sunday from 11am-5pm. Bags are ridiculously Price for Apple picking. The small shopping bag was 17 and the large shopping bag was 32. Unlike orchards we've been to, Apple Dave's doesn't provide any maps and the orchard is not label. Unfortunately for us, the majority of apples were picked over. We really had to go further INTO orchard to find decent apples. My hunny managed to find a few decent sized apples and I ended up picking smaller ones which were within arms reach. We pick apples for about 45 mins, which works up our appetite. There's not a huge selection of food here, BUT we decided to try Tacos. Much to our surprise, they were inexpensive and tasty. We opt for a 3 for 10 deal which consists of Chicken and Beef Tacos. They offer Pico De Gallo, Onions, Cilantro, Red Sauce, and Green Sauce. We also took part in hard cider and pink moscato which were both equally delicious. The drinks were super cheap and I felt a nice buzz from the cider. This was my first time having hard cider and I must say I really want to take keg back to our place. We also purchase Apple Cider Donuts and smash Apple Pie. This is so much fun! There's winery, distillery, and orchard all in one place. We go little earlier for apples, as there was only one variety but plenty of trees to pick from. I definitely enjoy wine tasting as well. My only complaint was the cocktail; my mule wasn't too great. I wouldn't definitely be back again because it's awesome to make a day of it and have everything in one place. A nice orchard not too far from Manhattan with a bevy of activities for the whole family to enjoy!

What is Backyard Orchard Culture?

When you think of Orchard, do you envision acres of perfectly spaced apple trees and workers on ladders picking fruit with harvest colors in the background? Are you then discouraged because you realize you dont have property to produce bountiful harvest to delight your familys taste buds? No so any more! You dont need a lot of land to have fresh fruit all year long. All you need to know is BackYard Orchard Culture. This is a method for creating prolonged harvest of tree-ripen fruit while providing a solution to having a family orchard minus work associated with commercial operation. BackYard Orchard Culture allows for fresh fruit to be harvested throughout the entire growing season. Some simple tree management processes make it possible to harvest many different kinds of fruit from your yard. The first step is to design a plan for prolonged harvest by planting different varieties of the same kind of fruit trees, such as peaches, so fruit ripens at different times. At Urban Farm we have three different varieties of peaches. Desert Gold Fruit ripen in Mid May, Tropic Snow Fruit ripens at the beginning of June, and Mid Pride Fruit ripens toward the end of June. By planting these three different varieties of peaches, harvest lasts 8 to 10 weeks instead of the normal 2 to 3 weeks for a single variety, and fulfills the first approach of Urban orcharding called successive ripening. The second step is being responsible for the size of your trees. A normal-size Fruit Tree can climb to well over 30 feet in height and have a 20-foot diameter. I tell people that fruit on top of full-size Fruit Tree is bird food. In Urban orcharding keeping trees small, In many cases, bush-size accomplishes two things: short fruit trees are easier to pick. Our goal here at Urban Farm is to keep all our trees under 10 feet high, making them easily harvestable from a 6-foot ladder. There are even cases where we keep trees to height of only 6 feet, making them even easier to harvest. Smaller tree sizes allow room for more varieties in the same space. You will see that the space one full-size tree takes up is enough room to plant 10 to 12 trees, giving you plenty of possibility for different varieties. Planting multiple fruit trees in a small space is called high-density planting. This can be achieved by planting two, three or four trees in a hole that is normally meant for one or by creating a hedgerow of trees. The purpose behind planting trees close together is to restrict their vigor, or their potential to grow. Incredible results are possible by healthfully restricting resources each tree is competing for. Managing tree size is determined by three factors: pruning, irrigation and fertilization. You must determine a size limit for your trees and stick to that commitment via pruning when the tree is young.
