U-Pick It – fruit sold out 2024

2024 FRUIT U-PICK Reservations are currently sold out!

Pick your own Apples, Pears, Cherries, and Flowers. This is a seasonal activity and Mother Nature dependent. Reservations are required for apple and pear picking only (Form below).

Pick your own flowers require no reservation and are open during farm stand hours mid August through first frost, when they are available.  We have beautiful Dahlias, Zinnias, SunFlowers, and many other long lasting cut flower options.

THE SEASONS…Growing fruit along the Front Range can be challenging due to our weather.  We often times have late snows and freezes in April or May when the blossoms are one.  Fruit trees only have one blossom set annually.  We have also learned that we need the fruit to mature early October as we often times get our first freeze and snowstorm late September/early October.  Due to our climate apple picking is a much earlier activity here than it is in other parts of the country.  We start picking apples early August and we finish by late September.

Pick your own fruit is by prior confirmed reservations only.

How It Works:

Cherries ripen early July. We do not have a large cherry section in our orchard. First rights to the cherries belong to the orchard and to our CSA memeber. IF THERE ARE ANY AVAILABLE AFTER THAT, we will post on our facebook page special hours for cherry picking a week or so before they are ready. No reservation required.

Apples are ripe late July through mid-October. Pears are ripe September and October. Reservation required.

  • Confirmed reservation – email with your request. (an email that states your request has been received is NOT a confirmed reservation.)  Email requests may be sent beginning January 1 for the current year picking.  Reservations are made in date order of requests sent and are scheduled beginning in July.
  • Around July/August, we will send you a confirmation email to you once your scheduled time has been set.
  • This is a family friendly activity.  We are not set up to accommodate groups at this time.
  • Plan approximately 1 hour to pick apples, meet the animals, eat apple cider donuts and drink cider.
  • When submitting your request via the form below if you do not receive a reply stating that your request has been received, we did not receive it.  Please resubmit it or send us an email info@yayafarmandorchard.com


  • $3 per person admission.  Your admission goes directly towards paying our orchardists to keep this orchard productive, beautiful and open to the public.
  • $TBD per bag.   You will be given 1/2 peck bags (holds 5-7 lbs of apples) to be used for picking. Bags may be limited depending on the season’s production. Please do not bring your own bags.

When coming to the orchard please be mindful of the following:

– Out of respect for our 4 legged and 2 legged creatures and other guests, please leave your dogs at home.

– Be gentle on our trees and plants.  How you treat the trees has a lot to do with their blossom ability next Spring.

– Parents, please supervise your children at all times.

– Pay for what you pick.
