U-Pick

U-Pick
We?re looking forward to a successful U-Pick (pick your own) season at the orchard this year. This years blueberry U-Pick crop was great and very successful.
Mother Nature was not kind with our Springtime weather! We (like most of the northeast) lost our entire stone fruit crop! No Peaches, Nectarines, or Plums! Apples will fair well enough for cider and the U-Pick season. We will be announcing U-Pick news here on the website and also on our Facebook Business Page.


We always offer a wide variety of apples in the New store. The Apple Barn has gone through an extensive remodeling, and we are open now beginning a full schedule. We have a new ice cream parlor and are scooping our neighbors from MA: GranVal Scoops Ice Cream! We have also added a soft serve machine. You can get cones, sundaes, razzles, and 8 other flavors added to vanilla soft serve. Please stop in and see what else we are offering.

A note about Educational Groups; we will be accommodating Educational Groups that want to come to the orchard and learn how the farm operates and take a wagon ride through the trees. As usual, donuts and cider will be offered.

We are looking forward to a great 2016 season! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call.

We appreciate your support.

How it Works

How it Works
Picking your own produce is a fun and economical activity for the whole family. Not only do you have the reassurance of knowing where your food was produced and how it was handled, but also the ability to enjoy nature at a relaxing pace. And, in this age of fast food and supermarkets, the experience provides a unique educational opportunity for your children – they learn a bit about life on a farm and gain a personal connection with their food supply.At BushyHill, there are 17 varieties of apples which may be picked in season. We make your visit as easy as possible. Our apple trees are dwarf and trained to a four-wire trellis. This ensures that all the fruit hangs between 1 foot and 6 feet above the ground – so anyone, of any height, can pick with ease.

We provide mesh bags (for apple picking) and comfortable, tractor-driven wagons to carry you and your produce to and from the fields. We hope you will understand that we must limit the number of persons who can pick with one sack. Of course, you may purchase additional bags!
