I was wondering when your 2022 season will begin for Apple picking this year?
We open Sept 23rd this year
Once the season begins, do you require reservations for individuals to come pick?
How many students/ chaperones are considered a field trip? (Homeschooled families)
Thanks for the info!
Sorry for the delayed response. No reservations required to come and pick apples. I’ll get back to you on the field trip questions. We are still working out logistics if we are going to offer field trips this year. Depends on size of crop. We will know more in the beginning of Sept.
We hope you are able to visit us this year!
Please call 661-822-4142 and speak with my Mom, Alice, in regards to field trip.
Hi, are u open tomorrow? Need to make a reservation
The apples are not ready til the end of September. I will post on website when I have an exact date and days we will be open.
Hope to see you then
Is there an actual ‘Tehachapi’ apple variety? When I was a kid in the 60s my family would drive to the Tehachapi area to gather apples and was told of an actual variety native to the area. Was I being told a hogwash story?
to the best of our knowledge there is no Tehachapi variety. Back in the day we had a lot of orchards that featured the Red Delicious Apple, your parents might have associated that with being a Tehachapi variety.

Hi I was wondering when the last day is for Apple picking and how much is it for the apples? ?
Opening day is Sept 17th. We close when we run out of apples, best guess at this point is 4 weeks from opening day.
Cost varies on quantity picked. Best price is $1.25lb
First timers. Usually go to Oakglenn but we were told you pick in Teha hapi. We’re in Lake Isabella. What do you charge per pound?. My husband is from MO and they picked everything there, so he’s ready. Blessings to you all. Sandy
Cost varies on quantity picked. Best price is $1.25lb. Hope to see your family this year.

Hi, are we able to use a stroller for my 18 month old granddaughter? Thanks Grandma Pat
Do you have a link to pricing? I’ve only seen field trip pricing, but we’re unable to go with the group. We’d love to come down/up this Saturday. TIA!
$1.00 per pound you pick. However, we have closed the orchard for you pick today, as it was a small crop due to Mother Nature’s rules.
How long does the apple season go? thanks!
This year will be a short season. Sadly, between 2 and 3 weeks.
We start Sept 19th this year.
Hope you can make it.
hi, my friends and our families are planning to have some apple picking but we’re just wondering when is the best time to be there..
Apple season starts towards the end of Sept. Stay tuned, we will update the main page when a date is set.
Hello, I was just curious if you sold pumpkins as well. Thank you
No we do not sell pumpkins. It was in our plans to do so this year, but my mother broke her hip. We are thinking about it again for the 2013 harvest season.
Have been picking apples here with grandsons for several years. They are already asking when are the apples going to be ready. See you soon, Dotsy
