Updates for the 2022 Season!
We are so excited for the Oak Glen fall apple picking 2022 season to start, and to welcome you all back to Willowbrook Apple Farm! It is a wonderful year for apples, and we cannot wait for you all to visit.
Our apple picking will begin the first weekend of October, with the first day being October 1st. Here are the answers to some of the most-asked questions:
● Our bags fit anywhere between 3.5-5 pounds depending on the size of apple and how many you cram in there 😊.
● We are offering reservations for the first weekend of the season. Please only pre-purchase one bag per group, you do not need to purchase a bag for each member of your group. During your reserved time slot, your group will enter the farm at a separate entrance instead of standing in the general admission line and begin enjoying your time on the farm right away.
● Once on the farm, there will be additional offerings such as u-press apple cider. Our country store will remain open for guests who would like to browse our jams, sauces, soy candles and other items.
● Guests without a reservation will still have a chance to enter the farm through the gate by our country store. We will admit groups based on the number of people on the farm at the time. We highly encourage you to reserve a timeslot for the first weekend with a pre-purchased bag but understand this is not always possible. We will do our best to accommodate as many guests as possible.
Reservations will be available to book at 7am on September 23rd, this Friday. The links will be posted on our website, and beginning at 7am, you will be able to reserve your timeslot. Please remember that our reservations do go fast, but not to worry you can still visit! You can also join the waitlist so that if somebody cancels you can get a reservation.
We will also be offering our delicious u-press apple cider. Each group will get a crate of apples and a staff member will show them how to use our old fashion cider presses. Then the fun begins!
Wine Tastings and S’mores are back!
We will end each day we are open with our hugely popular Wine Tasting and S’mores event from 4pm until 6pm. Right at 4pm we will light our bonfire and welcome our guests to enjoy the warmth of the fire and the clean mountain air while sipping wine and roasting s’mores – it is truly magical and the perfect way to end an autumn day in Oak Glen! We highly recommend you reserve a spot ahead of time for this event so we can prepare for you, and since we will sell out. You can reserve a spot on the events page starting Friday the 23rd.
