You can almost taste the history.

After over 100 years and 7 generations of growing apples, we have it down to both an artform and a science. And to be perfectly honest we’ll put our traditional apples and the apple varieties we’ve introduced over the years up against anybody’s. So bring your family out to make memories that will last a lifetime by picking ripe, delicious apples right off the tree. We’ll even give you a tractor ride out to the orchard.

Millstadt Apples

Picking and storing your apples.

Choose apples that are free of bruises, fragrant, firm to the touch, and free of bruises and then just pull and twist. When storing apples, keep in mind that apples ripen 6 to 10 times faster at room temperature than when refrigerated, so store them in the crisper drawer if you’re not going to eat them within a day or two of picking. Apples that will not be eaten in a day or two should be refrigerated in the crisper and stored by themselves (the fruit emits ethylene gas, which can cause other fruits and vegetables to decompose, so keep them separated).

  • Jonathan Apples

    One of our most popular apple varieties, the Jonathan apple is a medium-sized, sweet appl with a strong touch of acid and a tough but smooth skin. Jonathans are excellent for eating, salads, pies, and baking and are good for sauce. Eckert’s Jonathan apples typically ripen in September.
