Above Mackey's is a 45 acre orchard where all of the magic happens! Not only are our delicious crops grown atop the mountain, but the view of the Delaware Water Gap is absolutely breathtaking. While we grow many different typs of fruit, we only offer two types of pick-your-own at this time:
CHERRIES AND APPLES!
This year the weather did not permit any cherries to pick. Apple picking USUALLY starts around in September. PLEASE BE ADVISED: different apple varieties grow at different times! Keep updated on the website and Facebook to see what we are picking and when.
As with any PYO operation, it is always advised to call in advance. PYO is weather dependent and mother nature does not always cooperate! Please call ahead! (908)-475-1507
We grow over 100 varieties of apples that ripen between August and November. We offer PYO on weekends in September and October.
PRICING: We charge for the apples by the bag. A
half-peck bag (approx. 5 lbs.) is
peck bag (approx. 10 lbs.) is
$14.50 and a
half-bushel bag (approx. 20 lbs.) is $25. The price works our to be $1.50 per pound.Picking apples in anything other than OUR bags will be considered theft.
To get to the orchard to pick, you MUST take a hayride. There is a $2 per person charge, even if you are not picking. Children 3 years old and under are free. The hayride itself takes approximately 15 minutes round trip, picking time is however long you'd like until around 4 pm.
