Where to Go Apple Picking Around Delaware

These orchards around Delaware provide seasonal treats like U-pick apples, warm apple cider, apple cider donuts and more.

Apple picking is the perfect tradition to mark the start of the fall season. Spend a fun day in the orchard picking your own apples, then enjoy a cup of warm apple cider and indulgent apple pastries from the orchard’s farm store.

No matter where you are in the First State, you’re sure to have options for U-pick apples within convenient driving distance. Whether they’re in Delaware or just over the line in Pennsylvania or Maryland, these orchards are the perfect place to kick off the fall season.

Fifer Orchards

You can’t talk apples in Delaware without talking about Fifer Orchards. The farm has been in operation since 1919 and is a Delaware mainstay for farm-fresh produce. While crisp apples are always available at the farm store, you can pick apples yourself on Saturdays in September. Take a wagon ride out to the orchard and pick a bag full of apples for $24.95.
