Howdy, folks! This information is true & current as of 10/22/16.
Please no calls to confirm the info; we are swamped & can't get to
This might be the last weekend to pick apples; we'll know more
about that at the close of business on Sunday. We will update this
We do not close on Sundays! There are 2 farms on our property.
At the front is Riley's Stone Soup Farm, where you can pick
Winesap apples and do activities. To get to Riley's Apple Farm
in the back, just come on down the dirt road. In the back, you
can pick several varieties of apple, pick pumpkins, make apple
cider, do archery, tomahawk, and knife throw, eat at the BBQ,
and shop in Sharon's Country Store. Beat the heat - we are
approximately 10 to 15 degrees cooler than down in the valley.
Please see red area above for hours and days. We are no
longer open on weekdays, except for private tours. Activities
take place on Saturdays & Sundays only (Archery, Tomahawk,
& Knife Throw for $2 per activity for several tries; Cider Pressing
- one gallon for $20 (it takes 80 to 100 apples to make a gallon
of cider; we provide the apples & the container!) Cider shuts
down at 3pm & develops a waiting list quickly. If you'd like to
make cider, it's best to get here early & buy your cider ticket
right away in our store. U-pick apples are $3.25 per pound.
WE NOW HAVE U-PICK PUMPKINS AVAILABLE!! They are
75 cents per pound.
Apple varieties as of 10/15/16 are: Red Delicious, Jonamac,
Jonagold, Fuji, Rome Beauty, and the famous, much sought after
ARKANSAS BLACK! Varieties may change without notice.
Our next Gospel Sing will be on November 18, 2016. There are
no potlucks for the rest of the year, so the event will begin at
7pm. We will meet at Los Rios. Admission is free, and a free will
offering will be taken to help with expenses.
Riley's Apple Farm is the original "Riley's" in Oak Glen! We are set
on a cozy 3 acres in mile-high Oak Glen - California's own "Apple
Country." We are not "Riley's Farm;" that is a completely
separate business. Look for the red apple cutout that sits on top of
our "Riley's Apple Farm" sign!
- We are a u-pick apple, berry, & pumpkin farm. U-pick is available only when fruit is in season (Early July for raspberries & blackberries / late July to early August for apples / mid to late September for pumpkins.) End dates for u-pick vary depending on crop size, weather variations, and how many people come & how much they pick! Berries usually last until the first frost of the year, which can happen anywhere from late September to early October. Apple u-pick can end anywhere from early October to late November. The best time to come apple picking is in September to make sure you get to do it! Even when the u-pick stops, we are still open on the weekends with all of our activities, BBQ, and country store.
- We do Fall farm tours for schools, churches, scout troops, seniors, and other groups. We let you design your own tour by choosing from our wide variety of activities, including Frontier Cabin Adventure, Nature Walk, Apple Cider Pressing, Archery, Kazoo Making, Rope Making, Corn Husk Doll Making, Corn Grinding, & Johnny Cake Baking (in a wood-burning oven!)
