Apple Picking at Alstede Farms

Located in Morris County, New Jersey, the town of Chester is well known for its charming views, home to expansive woodland, gardens, and meadows, lush and green in spring/summer, and colorful foliage in autumn, great for walking the trails or hiking.


For wholesome fun, consider Alstede farms, a welcoming, family-friendly environment. Move through the sunflower maze and into the endless apple vineyard, choose from a variety of apple types: Gala, Red Delicious, Fuji, Granny Smith, Honey Crisp. Golden Delicious. McIntosh, and Ambrosia. Keep the momentum going with a joy ride on the hayride. Animal lovers will appreciate feeding chickens, ducks, turkeys, and goats, or mounting a pony.

Before departing, discover the farm’s shop, with an array of freshly picked produce, grass-fed meats, home-baked goods, treats, and ice cream, and daily made donuts. For a hot meal, head on over to The Hen House.
