Howdy, folks! U-pick will open for our Red Heritage Raspberries,
blackberries, and limited quantities of Gravenstein apples on
Friday & Saturday, July 22 & 23, 2016, from 10am to
Berries are $5.00 per pint. Apples are $3.00 per pound.
Considered one of the best all-around apples, the Gravenstein has
a crisp, slightly acidy, tart-sweet flavor and is juicy with a full
apple aroma. The Gravenstein—which has been in cultivation for
at least 350 years—just might be the perfect embodiment of a
delicious “old-fashioned” apple.
The Gravenstein is not only tasty for eating out of hand but is
excellent for baking and cooking. Use the Gravenstein to make
the season’s first apple pies, sauce, and cider.
Our next Gospel Sing will be on August 19, 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.
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, Nature Walk, Apple Cider Pressing, Archery, Kazoo Making, Rope Making, Corn Husk Doll Making, Corn Grinding, & Johnny Cake Baking (in a wood-burning oven!)
