Come see why Tuttles is one of Indy's favorite apple picking spots!
When is apple picking season?
2020 Update: due to May freeze the 2020 crop will be limited for picking….lots of apples in the Farm Store. We anticipate at this time that apple picking will open around September 18th. Please check back for updates as due to COVID changes may need to be made…reservations may be required, etc.
Please note: this info is for a typical year: Apples are typically ripe for picking Saturdays in late August, and daily through in September until mid to late October. Not all apples ripen at the same time – so depending on when you come different apples will be available for picking. First date for 2019 season will be August 23rd. We will start picking Early Blaze on August 23 and Gala on August 30. All other varieties are not ripe until September. Click here for the up to date daily info of what’s available.
What is the cost?
Choose between a $7, $15, or $25 bag to fill with apples. New for 2019, everyone who purchases a $25 bag will get a free Tuttle’s reusable bag. You may pick as many as you want, but you must purchase all the apples that you pick.
