Pick-Your-Own Apples at Greig Farm | Kids Out and About Hudson Valley

Pick-Your-Own Apples at Greig Farm

Bring your friends and family together to spend an afternoon picking apples on our Hudson Valley farm. Whether you’re picking apples to make sauce, bake a pie, or just eat straight off of the tree, our orchard has a variety for you! While you visit our farm in Red Hook, NY, stop by the farm market for some fresh apple cider donuts! Apple picking begins in late August and continues through late October.

How to Pick Apples

A common mistake is to pull apples off the tree. The problem with this approach is that when the tree finally releases your apple, the branch snaps back and shakes several other apples off of the tree. To pick an apple without disturbing the others, grab the apple and rotate your wrist forward. This will curl the apple against the stem and eventually break free.


There is no entry fee. You only pay for what you pick, by the pound.
