What began as a hobby in 1994 with 200 apple trees has expanded into over 3,000 and a wide variety of produce.
Peifer Orchards has become a local favorite. We provide high quality local grown produce to our surrounding communities.
Our Fresh Pressed
About Peifer Orchards
Welcome to Peifer Orchards! Our Farm Market is located in Yellow Springs, Ohio. The Farm Market features a variety of homegrown produce, peaches, and apples. Our fresh pressed apple cider is a local favorite.
We offer a variety of canned items including jams and preserves. We also have delicious local baked goods, local honey and Ohio maple syrup.
Our Orchard House Gift Shop features unique gifts handcrafted by local artisans.
Open seasonally June through December.
Our fresh apple cider is a seasonal favorite. During the fall, cider is pressed twice a week to keep up with its demand. It is made with only the freshest apple varieties available at the time, making each batch unique.
We intentionally press small batches to create the highest quality apple cider. Our cider is also unpasteurized, this keeps the cider in its natural state, full of flavor and nutritional benefits.
The Orchard & Apple Picking
We are very disappointed to announce that we have decided to cancel u-pick apples this Fall, 2019. We will still have plenty of our apples available in our farm market. We will update you on all of your favorite varieties as they are ready to harvest.
Here's a little more info on why we will not be doing u-pick this fall. As a result of the tornado and other extreme weather that came through the area Memorial Day weekend our apples have significant hail damage. For that reason, this year our team will be picking the apples to ensure that both trees and apples are protected. It goes to show how quickly things can change, our crop was looking excellent before the hail damage.
As we all know, these sort of weather events are rare. We are optimistic for better weather next growing season and that we will be able to have u-pick apples next year. Fingers crossed for a great 2020 season!
