Take a behind-the-scenes look at the committed work that goes into producing delicious and great-tasting fruit on this orchard tour. Wander around the trees and vines, taking in the sweet smells and bright colors before tasting the delicious produce and browsing an array of other goods.

The operation at Jackson Orchards is impressive; the 74-acre (30-ha) site is packed with trees and vines that grow outstanding, fresh produce. Your guide explains the history of place, how it began, and how it developed into the expansive setup you see today. You can either stroll or be driven around the orchard as key processes of cultivating, pruning, harvesting, and sorting are all explained.

Explore rows of apples, pears, nectarines, plums, cherries, and more. As you move through the trees, breathe in the sweet smelling aromas that drift through the air, tempting you at every step. During the harvest season (November to April), pick some of your own fruits. The rest of the year, you can grab a selection box from the onsite shop. Here, you can also see the wide selection of other goods they offer, such as smoothies, ice cream, preserves, and dried snacks, which are all available to tickle your fancy.
