U-Pick Apples

Apple Picking in Petaluma

Enjoy a day of family apple picking in our orchard with organically grown varieties such as Orin, Pinova, Candy Crisp, and Jonagold. We are open for u-pick on Sundays only, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, during August, September and sometimes October. 

The 2018 u-pick season has ended. We’ll open for 2019 in mid-August.

Join our email list (in the lower right corner of this page) or like our Facebook page to be informed about the season.

Entry time slots are available every hour, to help spread guests throughout the day, which creates a better experience for everyone. Admission is $8 per family if pre-booked online or $12 per family if you do not pre-book. Each family must have their own reservation to get the discounted price.

Throughout the day, we offer farm tours so you can see our cows, chickens, and sheep up close (the last tour is at 1:15 pm). 

Prices: Apples $2/lb. Grass-fed ground beef $8/lb. (Prices subject to change.) We often have other wonderful items for sale from our farm or our neighbors, such as free-range eggs, Nicasio Valley Cheese company cheeses, Chileno Valley Olive Oil, and apple juice by the cup. (All items subject to availability.) Payment: cash, local checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.  

To help plan your visit, check our frequently asked questions and recipes pages.

Slow Food Russian River runs a free apple press in Sebastopol, by reservation. Pick apples at Chileno Valley Ranch and press them into delicious juice!

Our opening and closing dates vary from year to year depending on the climate, crop size, etc. Occasionally, we don’t open on a particular Sunday in-season because there aren’t enough ripe apples. Be sure to check this site and confirm that we are open before you come.

No dogs, please.

We had a great time picking apples and meeting the animals on the farm. They offer a variety of organic apples and asian pears, as well as a few vegetables, eggs and grass-fed beef. – Alexandra
