Pick Your Own Fruit

Pick your own pumpkin patch at Chiles Peach Orchard

We’ll be doing things a little differently this year to protect our staff, visitors, and community during the pandemic, including requiring pre-pay containers and tickets for picking on the weekends (c’mon out during the week if you can!).

Tickets are required for apple & pumpkin picking on weekends (Saturdays & Sundays), September 26–November 1, 2020.

Please note that picking conditions can change day by day, and even hour to hour, depending upon weather and customer traffic. Check with us when you arrive, or call ahead to confirm what’s picking today! 

Pre-paid Picking Containers

You will pre-pay for your fruit prior to going into the apple orchard or pumpkin patch.

  • Apple containers: small bag (10.99), medium bag (19.99), and large box (34.99)
  • Pumpkins: 14.99 each (all sizes)

You’ll need to purchase at least one container for every 2-3 people in your picking party. Those who are not picking should stay in the farm market area–only picking customers are permitted in the orchard fields.

Bags and boxes can only be used once during your visit; do not empty them out and then refill while at the orchard. Don’t overstuff the bags and boxes.

Picking During COVID-19

We reserve the right to close the fields for picking at any time, due to weather conditions, lack of ripe fruit, non-compliance of our policies, or other unforeseen reasons.

Before Picking

For the afternoon timeslot, please arrive no later than 5pm (one hour before our closing time) for picking.

Limit the size of picking parties to small groups from the same household (including children). Larger parties will be split into smaller groups for picking.

Check-in at our picking station prior to entering the fields.

Pre-pay for PYO fruit : To minimize contact and maximize safety, we will not be weighing fruit this year.

  • Only containers provided by the Orchard will be permitted for picking.
  • No personal bags, backpacks, purses, diaper bads, etc. are permitted in the fields.
  • Do not mix fruits—separate containers must be purchased for each fruit (when applicable).

Sanitize your hands at our station before (and after) picking.

While Picking

Maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet from anyone other than your own party and wear your face covering when you cannot.

Do not eat fruit in the fields. You should wash all fruit at home prior to consuming it.

Do not throw any fruit on the ground. Any fruit you touch must go into your picking container. (Parents, watch your children!)

Only pick in the areas you are instructed to enter. Not all fruit is ripe at the same time.

Please exit the fields once you fill your containers so we can allow others to enter.


FAQs for Weekend Tickets

Why do I need a ticket for picking on the weekends?

Our new reservation system will help us moderate crowd size on the weekends during our peak season to allow you to maintain social distancing.

C’mon out on weekday (Monday—Friday) if you can!

Is there a ticket fee?

Yes, tickets are $8/person age 10 and over.

Kids under 10 are free, but still need to have a ticket reserved. (This helps us to manage our numbers at all times.)

Does the ticket fee include the apples and pumpkins I pick?

No, the ticket only grants you access to the picking fields on Saturdays and Sundays. You’ll still need to pre-pay for your fruit; purchasing at least one container for every 2-3 people in your picking party.

How can I reserve/buy my weekend picking ticket?

To guarantee you’ll be able to pick your own fruit on the date you’re visiting, please reserve your tickets in advance.

If you arrive without a ticket, we’ll accommodate you if we can; however, you cannot acquire a ticket if we have reached capacity.

What if I can’t make it?

Sorry, no refunds once your ticket is reserved.

We’re open rain or shine and will only close (i.e. cancel) in extreme weather. Please be prepared to enjoy your visit with us no matter the weather.
