Silkey Gardens LLC 2015

 . . . providing delicious, pick-your-own fruit to Rice County and surrounding areas.


Apples, Wild Plums, Blackberries …. All are pickable now!!!


Next open Thursday September 3rd from 3:30 to 6pm ...

Lots of beautiful apples just hanging there ...


We have a very nice crop of apples, that are ripe and ready to pick. Our Zestar are especially good this year, they look beautiful and taste great! Unfortunately, most of our apples this year are early season and they won’t hang on the tree for long. So, if you want to pick your own apples this year at Silkey Gardens, you should come out and pick soon.


****Something to think about: Many people don’t realize that it is fairly easy to freeze apples for later baking in pies or making apple sauce or ??? Just think how good a fresh baked apple pie will taste come next January.
A nice thought made easier by being able to just pull
some apples from your freezer …


The price this year is $1.50/pound pick your own; $2.50/pound prepick.


Blackberries are also starting to come in!
They are $4.50/pound pick your own.
Call ahead to check availability.


We also have some wild plums available to pick.
They make a great jam. The price for plums is
$3.00/pound pick your own.



For those looking for Honeycrisp, we will have
only a very few if any this year. They just didn't
have any blossoms last spring.

We expect to be open Tuesday and Thursday evenings

(3:30 to 6:00pm), and Saturday-Sunday mornings (9am to 1pm)

for the next couple of weeks as we pick apples.


Stay tuned .... :)



Apples: starting Thursday, August 20th, 3:30 pm!


Blackberries: just starting.


Blueberries: done.
