Utah has a great climate for growing delicious apples of many varieties. Cold winters and warm summers help to produce the right environment for apple growing. Most Utah apples are ready for picking between late August through October. We have created a list of Utah Apple Farms and Orchards for you to check out if you are interested in trying some local apples for yourself.
*We highly recommend calling the farms before you go. Hours can change depending on what fruits and vegetables are in season. Some of these farms are pre-picked and some are U-Pick and may require you to bring your own bushel baskets or ladders.
