PICK YOUR OWN orchard

We know this is long, but please read the whole thing as this is important information we all need to know and follow.

Due to Covid-19, we are making changes to how our Pick-Your-Own crops will be harvested and for our Fall Festival.

Covid-19 is not a foodborne illness. There is no evidence that the virus can be transmitted by food. The virus is transmitted person to person and likely to cause illness through respiratory transmission, not eating. The transmission routes to be concerned about include being in very close proximity to many people or coming in contact with high touch surfaces.

We want to keep you and our employees safe, while maintaining social distancing and limiting the contact you have with us. We follow CDC, FDA, and Department of Agriculture guidelines.

  • Do not come to the farm if you are displaying symptoms of Covid-19, or have come in contact with someone who has. If you are displaying symptoms at the farm, you will be asked to leave.
  • You will be required to bring and wear a face mask or covering, until guidance changes.  You will have to wear a face mask or covering while waiting in any line to purchase items and food, on all the attraction activities, and where you cannot maintain 6' social distancing.
  • Our employees will be wearing face masks and wiping down surfaces that are frequently touched.
  • To follow social distancing guidelines, we will be limiting the number of people allowed in the fields/orchard. You will be directed to what section is open for picking. Please maintain 6’ of space between people in line waiting to purchase their products or admission tickets and in the fields/orchard.
  • Grim’s will no longer be weighing each box or bag. Every person who enters the orchard or field will buy a box or bag before entering. (Previously you picked up a box or bag from an employee, went and picked your items, then came back to the employee, weighed the items, and paid for them.) Now you will only have contact with the employee once, when you pick the size box/bag you want and pay for it. No need to have contact with us a 2nd time and our employees will not touch your bag and produce after you have picked it.
  • We will still have to weigh your pumpkins.
  • Each person who enters must purchase a box/bag before going into the fields/orchard. It is NOT one box/bag per family. If you do not have a box/bag, you will not be allowed into the fields/orchard.
    • Age 2 and under are free.
    • Ages 3 and above must buy a 1/4 peck bag, or larger.
  • Only pick enough fruit or vegetables that fit in the box/bag that you purchased.
  • Any extra produce picked that does not fit in your purchased box/bag will require you to purchase another box/bag.
  • Do NOT bring your own containers from home.
  • Grim’s is now cashless. We will only accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Apple Pay, Google Pay, hold your phone over our card reader and it will accept it, along with Grim’s Orchard & Family Farms Express/Gift Cards. This is due to unknown concerns if the virus can stay alive on money.
  • The majority of our sales are already payed with credit card, but for those few people who do not have a credit/debit card, we will be selling Express/Gift Cards. We will have a location on the farm that will accept cash, and in turn, you will receive an Express/Gift Card that you can take to any register to purchase your items. You will need to get the Express/Gift Card at this location first before going to any of the fields/orchard and purchasing your boxes/bags and any items.
  • You can also purchase eGiftCards. If you purchase $50.00 or more, you get a 10% discount. They never expire.

Thank you for understanding and following our new guidelines, so we can all stay safe and healthy on the farm during these challenging times and what will become our new normal, while still getting out in the fresh air and picking your fresh produce.

>> We ask that you please respect our trees and plants that we work hard on year round to provide you with high quality fruits and vegetables!


Pick Your Own Farm

It all started on October 11, 2010, Josh had a great idea to expand the existing Corn Maze and Fall Festival by planting dwarf apple trees for a Pick-Your-Own apple orchard. Within a couple of weeks, he had 3,800 trees and supplies ordered for planting in Spring, 2011. At the beginning of December 2010, we started clearing 5 acres of land and tree line until the beginning of snow season. In March we finished clearing the land and preparing to install 2,200 feet of 8’ high deer fence to protect the apples from crop damage. In April, we planted 60 Sugar Maple and Red Sunset Maple trees around the perimeter of the orchard to give it some Autumn color. By the end of April, we planted the apple trees and put white protective sleeves around the trunks. In May, we started constructing a 4 wire trellis support system, tied the trees to the first wire, and removed all the apple blossoms. The irrigation system was installed in June to water them, and pruned and trained the trees by tying the limbs down. Then it was time to just watch them grow! One blossom was missed, so we only had one apple this first year.

In 2012, we expanded the orchard to a total of 15 acres, with almost a mile of deer fencing. We planted another 3,000 apple trees. In 2013, we expanded the orchard again for a total of 26 acres, with over a mile and a quarter of deer fencing, and planted another 4,300 trees. In 2014, we added another 4,300 trees and in 2015, added 3,000 more trees. Each year we have added more trees, with over 30,000 dwarf apple trees on a trellis system, literally creating a wall of apples. We have 24 varieties of apples for the Pick-Your-Own orchard in the surrounding Lehigh Valley.

In 2013, we planted 2,500 Sweet and Sour Cherry trees, available to pick in June and July.

We also planted 30,000 Strawberries, to add to our Pick Your Own Farm experience. Available to pick end of May through June.
