Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What do you grow?
A: Currently we have apples, peaches, berries, and garlic in the ground. We planted 500 new apple and peach trees this year with a lot of new varieties that weren’t available the last time the orchard was planted. One we’re most excited about is the “LudaCrisp” apple. These trees will be producing in approximately 3 years.

A: Dogs on leashes are allowed in the orchard. Please be kind to all our guests and pick up after your dog.

When you visit the orchard. Here are some helpful tips:
- Wear sturdy, comfortable shoes or boots. We are a working farm and flipflops or anything with a heel is not the best choice of footwear for wandering the groves.
- Wear comfortable clothes that can get dirty.
- Wear sunscreen.
- Safety is of paramount importance at any event or activity at Breeden’s Orchard. Swimming, wading, boating and fishing are not permitted in the pond. Climbing on trees is strictly prohibited and you will be asked to leave the property. Also, please be aware of signage that explains where you can or cannot go on the property. Certain areas may be off limits due to plants or trees needing alone time to flourish.
- Please do not pick un-ripened fruit off the trees, or squeeze and bruise it. We know how much fun it is to play baseball with fruit, but would like to ask that you kindly refrain from doing so.
- There are several beehives located on the orchard that are used for pollination. Individuals allergic to bee stings should have on their person an up-to-date EPI-Pen. Those with allergies to pollen are urged to use common sense before getting too close to any hives.
You Pick Availability:
We are an older orchard and over the next few years, with replanting and tender care, we hope to be able to offer You Pick days for our apples, berries and peaches. You Pick days will be posted on our event pages or social media as they become available. (Mother nature is in charge here). All You Pick visitors will need to sign a waiver (link)
