Where to Pick Your Own Apples and Pumpkins in the Hudson Valley

New York is the second-largest apple producing state in the country, and four of our hometown counties — Ulster, Columbia, Orange, and Dutchess — fall within the top 10 apple growing counties in the state. This fruitful economic driver employs more than 10,000 people throughout the state.

Right now it’s prime apple picking time in the Hudson Valley, and just as fun as getting out wth the family is trying different varieties of apples: from Honeycrisp's recent resurgence in popularity to SnapDragon's science-backed crunch. Each orchard offers a unique selection, so be sure to do your homework if you have a favorite variety.

Peaches and strawberries tend to disappear from the farm in summer, but there are still some early fall fruit harvests to be had in the following pages. And of course, what would a U-pick guide be without the pumpkin patch?

Keep an eye out for orchards marked IPM: These farms employ Integrated Pest Management, a holistic form of pest control that attacks the problem with a four-pronged approach of preventive and corrective measures. IPM lowers a grower's economic investment in pest control while simultaneously using more sustainable, environmentally friendly techniques.

Check our U-pick listings, double-check the farms’ websites for schedules, and pack up the family. See you at the farm!
