The blossoms have now become tiny little beginnings of the
apples you will soon be able to pick here at Riley's Apple Farm!
Although they are increasing in size daily, the apples still need
quite a bit of time to grow and ripen. The first varieties are
usually ready by late June or early July. As soon as we have
a definite date you can pick apples, we will post it here.
Here's a bit of good news: the berries will be ready sooner
than the apples. U-pick berries should start sometime in
early to mid June. Stay tuned for more info!
Our next Gospel Sing will be on June 17, 2016. We hope you
will join us for the potluck at 6pm (please bring a main dish,
side dish, or dessert) and remain with us for the 7pm main
event. We will meet at Los Rios. Admission is free, and a
free will offering will be taken to help with expenses.
We'd like to thank everybody who came up & visited the farm
in 2015 - it was a fun harvest season! We really enjoyed all of
our group and school tours, home school days, and meeting
all of the people and families who came up to escape the city.
Riley's Apple Farm is the original "Riley's" in Oak Glen! We are set
on a cozy 3 acres in mile-high Oak Glen - California's own "Apple
Country." We are not "Riley's Farm;" that is a completely
separate business. Look for the red apple cutout that sits on top of
our "Riley's Apple Farm" sign!
- We are a u-pick apple, berry, & pumpkin farm. U-pick is available only when fruit is in season (Early July for raspberries & blackberries / late July to early August for apples / mid to late September for pumpkins.) End dates for u-pick vary depending on crop size, weather variations, and how many people come & how much they pick! Berries usually last until the first frost of the year, which can happen anywhere from late September to early October. Apple u-pick can end anywhere from early October to late November. FYI, it's always a good idea to
come apple picking in September to make sure you get to do it!
Even when the u-pick stops, we are still open on the weekends
with all of our activities, BBQ, and country store.
- We do Fall farm tours for schools, churches, scout troops, seniors, and other groups. We let you design your own tour by choosing from our wide variety of activities, including Frontier Cabin Adventure, Gold Panning, Hayride, Apple Cider Pressing, Archery, Kazoo Making, Rope Making, Corn Husk Doll Making, Corn Grinding, & Johnny Cake Baking (in a wood-burning oven!)
