U-Pick Barn

Richard and Laurine Kimmel’s belief in sharing what the land produces lives on, especially in the orchard. School groups and families can explore the fields at leisure, picking seasonal fruits straight from their source. Best of all, you get to purchase and take home the hand-picked fruits of our collective labor. Turn this one-of-a-kind experience into periodic class field trips or make it a seasonal family tradition. From July to October, you’ll always find something fresh in the fields of Kimmel Orchard. 

Each Season Offers a New Hands-On Adventure

Free roam 40 acres of fields to find these seasonal fruits. Educational markers guide you along the trails helping your family or students identify and learn about what’s in bloom.

We’ll supply your tribe with picking bags and containers and help weigh your fruit for purchase—we’ll even pit your cherries before you go. When you arrive, just look for the red-roofed barn just north of the main buildings.
