Pick-Your-Own Hotline: 610-841-1417 Finding fresh and great tasting fruit is difficult these days, especially when you consider that most food travels hundreds or even thousands of miles to reach your local supermarket. But during Grim's Apple Picking in the Lehigh Valley season, you can truly get the freshest, all-natural apples possible, straight from the tree itself. Not only that, but it is a fun family activity that everyone of all ages can enjoy, and one that yields delicious and fresh fruit.

Apple Picking Lehigh Valley

Pick the freshest apples with the family, enjoying a nice day out together. We have over 20 different varieties of Apples. See below for the approximate harvest dates.

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 over 20 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.

2020 was a year for more changes.  We planted potatoes, sweet potatoes, and many varieties of vegetables, all for Pick-Your-Own!

WE'RE THE BEST ORCHARD!

Due to Covid19, we have implemented changes for all our pick-your-own crops and activities, to keep you the customer, and our employees safe, while maintaining social distancing.  Click on the tab below for more information now.  

Due to Covid-19, we have made changes as to how our Pick-Your-Own crops will be harvested and all of our activities on the farm. 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.
  • Following CDC guidelines, people should wear a mask inside any of the buildings.
  • Our employees working inside a building or shed will be wearing masks. Those working outside may not be wearing a mask.
  • Please try to leave 6' of space between you and the next party while in line waiting to purchase your 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.  We are following the same process that we implemented in 2020.  (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 box/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.  You can not share one box/bag with the whole family.  Each person needs their own.  If you do not have a box/bag, you will not be allowed into the fields/orchard.
  • 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 and bags from home.
  • Grim’s is now cashless. We only accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Apple Pay and Google Pay, just hold your phone over our card reader and it will accept it, along with Grim’s Orchard & Family Farms Express/Gift Cards.
  • 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 one 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 register to purchase an item.
  • 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 guidelines, so we can all stay safe and healthy on the farm during these challenging times, while still getting out in the fresh air, having fun and picking your fresh produce. Grim’s Orchard & Family Farms 

Grim's Orchard is more than just a pick-your-own orchard! We have hay rides, a corn maze, a fall festival, and so many more fun things to do!
