Our Story

3803 Wynola Road - Old Peacefield Orchard, under the ownership of  Ken Browning, is home to 200+ thriving apple trees bearing Reds, Goldens and Granny Smiths. Situated on 2 1/2 acres, many of our apples are from the original dry-farmed planting.

Renowned as the oldest apple tree in Julian, Granny Gravenstein lives on!


Ken reports that due to fresh pruning, thinning, feeding and watering 

“This year the apples from Gravenstein were very few (earliest maturing) and then Jonathans, Jonagolds, Golden and Red Delicious followed, finishing up now til October with Granny Smith, tart and good for pies.”

Orchard gates open 2022 for the Apple Season. Visit on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am until 2 pm

U-Pick Guidelines, Pricing & Parking

Update 09/06/2022

Our 2022 apple season is now open for U-Pick until picked out. Sign up for the newsletter and we'll let you know about special orchard events throughout the other seasons!

Thank you for your patronage!

 

Guidelines

Pickers will be instructed on proper picking technique and will carefully pick only ripe fruit. In other words, no discarding fruit after picking. If one is uncertain which fruit is ripe or acceptable, they will decide before they pick. Once picked, that fruit is part of their bag(s), and the Picker is responsible for paying the agreed-upon pricing.

 

Pricing

Apples are $20 per 1/2 peck size bag which will contain 8-10 apples depending on their individual size. Cold water is available for $1 a pint.
 

Parking

There is parking available for 1-2, 3-4, and 2 lanes accommodating a maximum of 12 vehicles. When your group arrives, please be patient while we help you to park. Thank you in advance!
