- Do you have restroom facilities on-site?

- Is there a group minimum requirement?
Nope! In previous years, we did ask for a group minimum, but this year you can make individual purchases to reserve your spot through the online store. There is a 50 person limit for each session in the online store. Please contact us if you need to make special group arrangements.
- I have a group of more than 50, can you accommodate us?
Yes! If you have a larger group, please contact us ASAP so that we can secure your own exclusive time slot during one of our posted sessions. Instead of paying through the online store, we will send you a credit card invoice of $5 per person for however many people you will have. Full payment is due prior to arrival. Please note that all sales are final regardless of any dropouts.
- I purchased online. Why have I not received any tickets?
An automated email was sent to you from Ecwid with your order number and purchase information. That email is your ticket. Please have proof of purchase ready when checking in. In case your service provider does not provide service at our location, we recommend taking a screenshot of your order, or printing a copy to show upon check-in.
- Can I just show up and pay?
Not at this time, no. We will be limiting the number of reservations available per session to provide a more comfortable experience for you. For this reason, it is required that you book through our online store with prepaid reservations. Thank you for your understanding!
- It looks like I can only reserve a spot to attend in your online store. What if I want to pick apples as well?
Retail purchases, including u-pick apples, will be available on site after you check in. The cost for a half peck bag of apples is $20.
- What forms of payment do you accept for retail purchases?
Cash and credit card. Credit card purchases require a $5 minimum and a photo ID.
- Will you have food available for purchase?
Fresh pressed apple cider from Apple Lane Orchard will be available for purchase, but we will likely not have food available for purchase.
- Can we bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on your property during our 2 hour session?
Yes! The property has beautiful views and will be perfect for a picnic. Please bring a blanket to sit on as we have limited picnic tables.
