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.

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!

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!
