Activities at The Olmenhorst:

The fruit trees blossom in spring. This is when The Olmenhorst hosts the annual Apple Parade. In autumn, when the fruit is ripe on the trees, it's time for the famous 'pick-your-own' event at the estate; a fantastic outing for young and old alike!

Apple picking at The Olmenhorst:

At The Olmenhorst Estate, the fruit is grown 100% organically, and the apples and pears are ripe in September/October. That's when the orchards are opened for picking. Would you like to pick apples at The Olmenhorst Estate? You are most welcome! The opening dates for Pick-Your-Own are announced around June.
