Peacefield Orchard, under new owner Ken Browning, is home to 200+ thriving apple trees bearing reds, goldens and Granny Smith. Situated on 2 1/2 acres, many of our apples are from the original dry-farmed planting. Reputed to be the oldest apple tree in Julian, Granny Gravenstein lives on at Peacefield.
Ken reports that due to fresh pruning and watering,
“This year the apples from Gravenstein came on like gangbusters (earliest maturing) and then Jonathans, Jonagolds, Golden and Red Delicious followed, we're now finishing up with Granny Smith, tart and good for pies.”
The farm stand will reopen on August 28th for the 2021 Apple Season. Visit on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. until 2 p.m.
U-Pick Guidelines, Pricing & Parking
The 2021 apple season is almost here!
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.
Apples are $16 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. Entrance fees will be charged on days with musical performers.
There is parking available for a maximum of 12 vehicles. When your group arrives, please be patient while we help you to park. Thank you in advance!
