U-Pick Apples at CherryHawk Farm

Apple picking the way it used to be. Experience what your parents and grandparents might have in our apple orchard. Over a dozen varieties ripen over the season in a beautiful, natural setting. An easy drive in the country from Columbus, Hilliard, Dublin, Powell, Delaware, and Worthington.

A happy Mother’s Day post, things are looking up. We skated through six freezes and quite a few heavy frosts and are happy to report that (father god and mother nature willing) there will be some apples out here this season. Things are running two weeks earlier than last year so please check back around Aug 1.

Directions from 33 West

  • Exit at Scottslawn Road, at the end of the ramp turn right
  • Turn left/north on Watkins Road. [This is tricky, Watkins is a curve, you can go left or right, you want left/north.]
  • Take Watkins Road to the Hinton Mill Road intersection, turn right/east.
  • Take Hinton Mill Road to Springdale Road, you can only turn left, turn left/north.
  • Drive a mile or so until you cross a bridge, our farm is on the right just after the bridge.
  • Look for the driveway with a big red apple flag and an enter sign.

Notes:

Dogs are not allowed in the main orchard or the sunflowers. They can stay in your vehicle with the windows cracked (weather permitting) or be walked on a leash in the parking area. Please be prepared to clean up any dog poop and do so promptly.

Flip flops and sandals are not recommended. Please wear sturdy shoes covering your feet. We have rough terrain in the fields.
