U-Pick Apples

U Pick at Chileno Valley Ranch

Opening day is September 5th, 2021

Hours will be 8 AM to 12 PM

Reservations will be open August 15th.

All guests must have proof of reservation and vaccination to enter Chileno Valley Ranch.

Mike and Sally Gale and their loyal volunteers are pleased to announce the reopening of the U Pick Days at Chileno Valley Ranch, beginning September 5, 2021, at 8 A M.

Guests are kindly asked to wear masks and to practice social distancing. This applies to children as well as all adults, vaccinated or not. The Delta variant is of great concern to us, and we want both volunteers and guests to feel safe at Chileno Valley Ranch.

We are also asking you to stay only an hour and 15 minutes, to keep the number of people down to a safe level.

Reservations may be made for Sept.5th and Sept 12th ON AUGUST 15TH. Reservation dates will usually occur 2 to 3 weeks in advance. We expect to have U Pick Days through October.

An added attraction this year are 16 chicks and 7 guinea hens, in addition to our friendly older hens. Plus we will be selling honey, lavender and Veronica’s baked goods.

Thank you for remaining loyal to the Chileno Valley Ranch gang. We look forward to seeing you soon!

~ Mike and Sally

We had a great time picking apples and meeting the animals on the farm. They offer a variety of organic apples and asian pears, as well as a few vegetables, eggs and grass-fed beef. – Alexandra
