We have visited O’Halloran’s Apple Trail Ranch several times over the years. If you visit early in the Apple Hill season, the farm is packed with people visiting the huge pumpkin patch because they have really great prices. But after one particularly bad experience with Apple Hill traffic, we now visit later in the season to avoid the crowd and this means that Ohalloran’s Ranch often feels like an abandoned ghost town!
After visiting Bodhaine Apple Ranch, Delfino Farms and Joan’s Apple Bakery, Larsen Apple Barn, Denver Dans You Pick Apple Patch where we were greeted by friendly, smiling staff, it was a little disappointing to walk into O’Halloran’s Barn only to find it empty. No one was in the barn.
We couldn’t buy anything because no one was working in the barn, so we decided to walk through the pumpkin patch. The pumpkin patch covers three acres and with only a couple other families visiting, it was really peaceful and quiet. If you’re looking for a pumpkin, make this a stop on your list because the prices are really good and they give you red wagons to cart your pumpkins from the patch to your car.
About O’Halloran’s Apple Trail Ranch
Established in 1968, O’Halloran’s Apple Trail Ranch sits on 30 acres on the Golden Apple Trail in Apple Hill. They grow and sell 16 varieties of apples, pears, and plums, and sell all apples by volume so all varieties are the same price. This means you get to select any combination of apple varieties to take home and enjoy.
O’Halloran’s Apple Trail Ranch also features a nature trail, a picnic area, a three acre pumpkin patch in the fall and a three acre cut-your-own Christmas tree lot during the Christmas season with five different varieties of trees.
