Minard Farms and U-Pick Orchards

Pick Your Own Apples and Pumpkins!

Pick your own New York apples in the Hudson Valley!  We are located 75 miles north of NYC in the mid Hudson Valley with breath taking views of the Shawangunk (the Gunks) and Catskill Mountains.

We have over 100 acres of orchard full of easy-to-reach, beautiful ripe apples.  We also grow peaches, nectarines, asian pears, raspberries & strawberries (for making jams & jellies), pumpkins, gourds and various vegetables.

At our farm market you will find apple cider donuts (we dare you to eat just one!), our own fresh pressed apple cider and pear cider, homemade pies, homemade jam, jellies & fruit butters, local honey, NY cheeses, NY maple syrup, homemade soap and much more.  Oh – don’t forget the roasted corn on the cob and hay wagon rides through the orchard.

Bring a picnic lunch or visit our snack bar.  Picnic tables are available at the farm market and in the orchard.  We also have clean, modern restrooms at the farm market for your convenience.

Farewell Tour

As the Pick-Your-Own season is quickly approaching we, the Doubrava family would like to share some news with you. As many of you know Debbie & Derrick purchased the farm from John & Yvonne Minard in 2003. After 11 yrs of very hard work, blood, sweat and tears, the Doubravas; Derrick, Debbie, Erin and Matt, will be moving on from farming.

This year will be our last year operating the farm stand.... But there is nothing to worry about. Minard Farms isn't disappearing, the orchard land is being sold to a different part of the Minard Family; Douglas & Robert Minard, the previous owner's cousins. And the cider mill is being sold to the previous owner's daughter and son-in-law; Diane & Fred DeMaio.

Debbie and Derrick will be starting a new chapter in their lives, Matt will be attending college in Albany and Erin will be pursuing her graduate degree at SUNY New Patlz. We are saddened to be moving on from farming, but it is the right timing for our family. We hope to get to say a proper goodbye to all our amazing and loyal customers this fall. So please join us this fall in our farewell season and help us celebrate the previous 11 years of apple farming.
