Ripe apples are available for picking at Los Rios Rancho from late August through early November. There are 32 varieties available for U-pick and bulk purchase, including Macintosh, Gala and Spartan, and each one is ready for harvest at a different time—so check online to find out which types are ripe and ready to be picked.
When you’re not picking, meander past the petting zoo, grab coffee or stop in for some pastries or BBQ and settle in at a picnic table. Fresh pressed cider is available, too, and a necessary way to end your time spent in the orchard. Some offerings have been impacted following a fire on the property in late 2020, so for now picking hours are only on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm.
