i began eating apples from Saratoga Orchards after my sister, an apple afficionado, insisted that Saratoga Orchards has the best Ginger Golds. The apples from Saratoga Orchards are consistently fresh and flavorful, even in the spring and summer, which they attribute to storing the apples in a low oxygen environment. i never knew that apples could be so good year-round!

Saratoga Apple's apple-picking policy--the requirement that each person in a group must purchase an entire bag of apples--is ridiculous and particularly unfair to families, who often only need/want one or two bags. They seriously need to

Saratoga Apple has recently began it's newest policy on a Pick-Your-Own entrance fee into the orchard. By talking with the owner, I found out that in past years Saratoga Apple would lose a major profit percentage by allowing anyone and everyone into its harvest fields. Some "customers" would bring their children to the farm to enjoy the tractor rides and let their children wander within the apple trees without planning to buy a bag. Not only is this cute, but after thousands of "customers" that stroll through there is a carpet of once perfectly ripe fruit that now lays decaying on the ground. Many people, especially the younger ones, will pick an apple before looking it over or accidentally knock 4 apples off the tree while picking one.

Since the creation of this policy, there have been customers and potential customers alike with their own opinions. Some see the farm as "greedy" just trying to maximize profits, while others see that the farm is in fact becoming more efficient as they meet each problem with solutions. If you drove past Saratoga Apple a few years ago towards the end of its harvest, the amount of apples covering the ground would almost blot out the grass. That's thousands of dollars worth of retail apples that are just rotting away. The creation of this policy has angered some potential customers, but in the long run it does it's own little part in maximizing the farms potential. Customers that ultimately decide to accept the policy not only pay a small price (Unsure of actual pricing but I believe it comes out to around $6/person) to create memories that they nor possibly their children will soon forget, along with enough apples for many delicious treats. They also help the farm stand on its feet and continue to deliver the choice of Pick-Your-Own every year.

I hope this helped to answer a few questions.

Actually, for 6 dollars. I get a great wagon ride to one of the most scenic hills around the hudson valley. The driver knows everything about apples and where they are. I get bluegrass music all day, cider doughnuts. the freshest, greatest apple cider made as you watch. And reggae music by a top notch band. The tractor ride alone is worth at least 5 bucks. the view is worth 20. The band on sunday is worth at least 6. So depending on how you look at it , the apples are bonus. Most of what you can buy there is hard to find somewhere else. The atmosphere is best called festive from what I saw. I like all the orchards around here, but saratoga apple does a little extra and it makes a difference. It's too bad a misunderstanding would cause you to leave. Buying the bag gets you on the wagon ride. So it's worth it. 5 or 6 dollars is the same everywhere. And if its too many apples, well, everyone knows some one who wants some apples. I saw one family having a picnic on the hill. They said they come every year. This is a unique place. Theres just no doubt about it. For the money, this place is worth it for 3 or 4 hours of fun. I'm actually surprised that it isn't a better known family destination. I love this place.

Saratoga Apple charges $6 per person that includes a 1/2 peck bag, your choice of the variety of apple and a wagon ride on the weekends ( kids 3 and under go in for free)..this is less than you spend taking your kids to the movies or getting your nails done..get over it...

We took my 9- and 3-year-old children to Saratoga Apple today but we left there with no apples and both of my kids confused and in tears. We wanted to purchase the medium sized $12 bag, the perfect amount for our small family, but I was told that in order for all 4 of us to participate in the picking, we would actually have to pay $24 for ??entry for 4 people? and twice as many apples. Even worse, I later discovered that the Saratoga Apple website says ??no admission.?

As a young family, not only can??t we eat 25 pounds of apples, we also have to look for fun activities that fit into our budget. But how do I explain to my kids that only one of them gets to go because I didn??t bring enough money for all of us? My 9-year-old??s response to the situation was to tell her brother that Saratoga Apple was being ??greedy.? Clearly she learned the lesson I was teaching about sticking to your principles and not allowing yourself to be taken advantage of.

It used to be that picking your own fruits and vegetables was a fun and low-cost family activity. We??ve had many wonderful summers picking our own at local farms and have only ever been asked to pay for the fruit we picked. Patronizing local farms is important to us but we??d rather go to a place that appreciates us, rather than one that penalizes me for bringing the whole family.

This family-run orchard is great fun for apple picking and their cold storage room makes it a year-round destination for crispy apples. They have wonderful produce, breads and even home-grown pork.

I really enjoyed my time picking apples with my family. Not only could you be transported to the apple trees but you were welcomed to walk on foot to the apples.

Not only could you pick many different kinds of apples, but they had other items for sale.

Their apple cider and donuts were the best!

If your looking for a fun day out with the family I suggest Saratoga Apple!

The pick your own apples herre is great. They have a big variety of apples to pick and they have a huge orchard. They have a back room in the barn wherre you can taste all the different varieties of apples. It is a lot of fun. The prices on gords and other stuff is a little more than other farm market places. They also have great cider doughnuts.
