Our family-owned, sustainably farmed ranch was purchased in 1924 and is now in our third generation of owners. Smokey Ridge Ranch produces 17 varieties of apples, 5 varieties of wine grapes, olives, figs, chestnuts, and pumpkins.

All of the fruit is only picked when if is fully mature to ensure full tree and vine-ripened flavor. The Smokey Ridge Ranch includes a seasonal pond, Native American sites, sections of the Pony Express Trail and abandoned mine sites.

Farm Fresh Apples and Fruits

Apples, figs, pears, persimmons — we pick-as-we-go, guaranteeing you the freshest, tree ripened fruit.  It is really right off the tree!!!

Our 17 varieties of apples include old fashioned standbys like Winesap, Jonathan, Macintosh, Granny Smith, Rhode Island Greenings, Arkansas Blacks, Red Delicious and Golden Delicious plus newer varieties including Mutsu (our most popular!), Jonagold, Pink Lady’s and early and late season Fuji.

We always provide tastings so you can compare varieties side by side. You’ll be amazed at how different they taste!  Not all apples varieties are ripe at the same time each fall.

The patch is a short stroll through the wine grapes where you can pick your prize pumpkins right off the vine.  Yep, we grow ‘em right here on the farm!  None of that trucking them in and scattering on the ground for us! We also have colorful small gourds for sale.
