Pick your own Apples in Columbus | Columbus Moms Network

Summer is winding down, and although I’m sad about that, I love the fall season that is coming!   There’s nothing like picking your own apples and it’s one of our favorite fall activities.   Once you have apples, don’t forget to make some yummy fall recipes!   My favorite thing to do with all the apples we pick is to make apple crisp, it’s so delicious!  Here are some apple orchards in and around Columbus.

  • Note: Please reach out to orchards directly for the most current information and any weather related closures!


Lynd Fruit Farm

9399 Morse Rd SW.  Pataskala, OH


U-Pick apples will be open Wednesday-Sunday as long as the supply of a given variety lasts.  Note that a few varieties are to open on days other then Wednesday.   Opening U-Pick is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.   The Market however is open daily.   Note, the orchard is open as scheduled as long as orchard conditions allow for heavy traffic.  Significant rains, lightning or recent heavy rains causing extremely wet orchard ground (even when not raining) all warrant closing the orchard.   If a scheduled day follows a day of rain, check the ticker on the home page for the most recent updates.

Price: all apples are $25/peck, $35/half BU.  Note: minimum purchase per vehicle is 1 peck bag.
