Only 2-3 miles south of New Paltz center, Dressel Farms has great local fruit and some creative ice cream creations to enjoy. On July 3rd we found beautiful ripe local blueberries, strawberries and cherries awaiting us, though if we had arrived from 8AM to noon we could have opted to pick our own tasty strawberries. With the entire Shawangunk range... More

they have the best strawberries for about 4 weeks late may to june. then you have to wait for apple season, which is also great. good cider doughnuts and ice cream. Ask to see the animals out back if you have kids that like that stuff. The view of the ridge is sublime.

Dressel Farms isn't far from the heart of New Paltz. We went for apple picking but discovered they had more to offer - including free hay rides around the orchard, a corn maze, a farm stand with great cider and fresh donuts (amongst pre-picked apples and produce) and even a tasting room for local hard apple ciders, wines, and spirits....

Excellent apple orchard. Many varieties of apples--all delicious. Very nice, helpful people. Reasonable prices. They also had their own hard-cider, available for tasting and purchase.

Dont forget to ask about their Kettleborough cider, which is a lovely farmhouse style. Oh, and good veggies and apples too.

Every year I go pick strawberries from the patches at Dressel farms, which are typically located down Route 208 from the main farm stand. These berries are super sweet and easy to pick, and when you buy them per pound, super cheap. Easy to freeze to have handy throughout the summer. The farm itself can get crowded during the busy...

It seems more geared to people with children, which is fine but it's very crowded. And they don't allow dogs so we only stayed a short time because we didn't want to keep them in the car too long.

Loved the apples, pears, and fresh nectarines at their farmstand... and taking photos with the Apple's was memorable!

After visiting the farm for years, it was interesting to see a change in the offerings, including a new rude attitude on the part of the proprietor and staff. More for adults, less for children. For example, there is now wine tasting (sweet space, but not great wine), but much smaller petting zoo. Not only intolerant of children, but as... More
