September 4, 2018:  Pick your own apples on Saturdays.

At Shaw Orchards, we take apples very seriously. They have been grown here for over 100 years, and though all the original trees are gone, we still pride ourselves in offering the highest quality apples around. Barron and Glenn are members of many apple organizations, including International Dwarf Fruit Tree, the Knouse Growers Cooperative, and State Horticultural Association of Pennsylvania (SHAP). We scour all of these sources and more for the best new varieties and growing methods. We know you'll appreciate our attention to detail!

SHAW ORCHARDS offers pick-your-own apples on Saturdays each week from Sept. through about the end of October, as the supply lasts. We will be picking different varieties only as they are in season, so check the RipeLine news to find out which apple will be offered. Gala, and Golden Delicious will start the season, followed by Cameo, Nittany, Rome, and York Imperial. Great picking and a fun wagon trip will combine to make a wonderful memory and an annual family event.

We will continue to carry a full range of fresh apples at the market.
