You-pick availability

TIP: Make sure to come early to guarantee yourself the best pick! Also, make sure you subscribe for all the in-cider info!


APPLES: There are three different ways to make sure you are picking in the right area!

*Please notes that this changes daily, so if you're headed to the orchard, check to see what's pickin' today!

1. Look for the signs! The signs will let you know which variety is available in that area!

2. Next to the picking variety, you will find row numbers that match the row numbers in our orchard!


3. Listed next to the row numbers, you will find ribbon colors that match the ribbons tied on trees in the proper picking areas in our orchard! 




  • Please ONLY pick in the assigned rows and where there are signs & ribbons on trees.

  • We CANNOT accept returns of U-Pick Produce. It can't be unpicked, & we cannot resell it! Please only pick what you intend to keep!

  • No backpacks,  bags, coolers, or containers from home are allowed in u-pick area, (diaper bags for little ones are allowed, but we ask that you keep these contained to a stroller or wagon & out of the picking fields). 

  • No Picnics in U-Pick area!! We have picnic tables available in our covered pavilion for you to use. 

  • All Groups entering U-Pick area must purchase a picking container

  •  For apples: Groups of 6 or more People must buy at least a 1/2 Bushel bag.

  • Please DO NOT shake/break branches, throw, dump, damage, or waste the fruit we work hard year round to grow.

  • Please. do not enter barns, houses, animal pens, or sheds. If there's a gate or a fence those areas are OFF LIMITS! 

  • Please, no alcohol anywhere on our property, including the parking lot. 

  • We love your four legged family & they are always allowed at Bowman Orchards but... please keep all pets on a leash at all times, out of the wagons & berry fields, keep pets out of play area as some small children are afraid of animals, and please pickup after them (there are pet waste stations throughout the property). Any guests with a pet left in a hot vehicle will be asked to leave. 

  • Please keep all strollers out of the berry rows. 

  • The safety of our guests is very important to us. Therefore, please only allow a responsible adult to use the ladders. If you need assistance, we are here (& love) to help!

  • Due to Produce safety Standards we cannot allow any eating in our fields, including sampling of produce while picking. We know this is especially hard for kids, but it is for the safety of everyone who visits, so please keep an eye on your little ones.

  • Please only handle produce with love, care & clean hands.

  • Please keep our fields clean of any trash. For your convenience we have garbage containers throughout the orchard
