Pick your perfect paradise… and juicy ripe apples at local farms this fall in Avila Beach!
Read on for the best places to pick apples in Avila:
Located off of San Luis Bay Dr and HWY 101, this is an organic apple orchard with 14 acres of vibrant apple trees, and a 3-acre organic vegetable garden with organic herbs, honey, flowers, and classes. They have a U-Pick apple stand located in the Garden Area which is located on Monte Rd where you may enjoy picking fresh apples right off the tree. All apples are organic, so you can enjoy eating them right off the trees.
Gopher Glen Apple Farm is a forty-year-old farm, that started as a quaint, roadside apple stand. Dr. John DeVincenzo, a local orthodontist, was the original owner and founder of Gopher Glen, originally named for its large number of furry inhabitants. Dr. D (as he was affectionately referred to) had a particular interest in apples and through the grafting process, created his own unique varieties, one being the Heaven Sent apple, named after his late wife Bobby.
Depending on what time of season you come there will be a variety of different apples. Some varieties include Golden Delicious, Red Gold, Fuji, Red Delicious, Pippin, Gala, and many others. They say, “The fall is one of our favorite seasons here at See Canyon Fruit Ranch. Come bring a picnic with your family and enjoy our beautiful property. Life is too short not to picnic, sip some cider, and laugh with the people you love.”
From peaches to raspberries, Avila Valley Barn is almost always good for a U-pick experience! They use healthy soil practices meaning it is safe for your family to walk into the field and eat fruit and veggies 365 days a year.
