Pleasant View Orchard Indiana

U-Pick Apples

A trip to Pleasant View Orchard to pick-your-own apples is an experience that will bring lasting memories for your entire family.  It has become a family tradition for many.  With more than 40 acres of apple trees consisting of over 20 varieties to choose from throughout the growing season, Pleasant View Orchard is a great destination for a day of family fun.

For specific starting dates of our apple varieties, please call us at (317) 861-4025, as dates can vary from year to year.

We do not allow driving in our orchard.  We do encourage you to bring along a wagon to help with your children and apples.

Pick-your-own apples are available every day from about early August through the end of October.  You must use our bags for apple picking.  The bags range from peck to bushel.

All apples store best when refrigerated.
