“Popular farm visit close to NY city”

Lawrence Farms Orchards
Ranked #6 of 20 things to do in Newburgh
Attraction details
Reviewed October 1, 2013

In less than two hours you can drive north from New York City to Newburgh NY to visit the Lawrence Farms Orchards. Very popular stop with plenty of parking. Maps of the farm and plenty of help direct you to the apple of your choice and also the produce you need. The kids loved it and the adults bagged dozens of apples for eating and baking. We bought a dozen of the fresh picked sweet corn and it was the best I've had in an age.

Wear your walking shoes, the grounds are big so give yourself plenty of time to walk from one end to the other. Since it is fall the pumpkin patch is filled with big orange pumpkins and check their web site to see what apples are ready.

This is a great family outing. Enjoy

Had a great time with the family playing in the little village, walking around the store, and picking our own fruits and veggies. The food there was reasonably priced, but not too fantastic. A picnic would've been a better option. Bring your sunscreen n say hi to the animals!

Nice place to visit for a couple of hours. Grounds are beautiful with really nice views of the surrounding hills. Very quiet and peaceful way to spend some time. The selection of fruits and vegetables available for picking (depending on the season, of course) is varied and interesting. They are somewhat expensive to purchase upon your leave, but you can always look at that as in place of an admission fee (which there isn't).

Prices on average are at least twice the price, if not triple the price, of supermarkets, and supermarkets have it picked and delivered to your neighborhood market for purchase. Not only were cherries $7+ per pound, but donut peaches were $4.99 per pound and regular peaches $3.99. Why bother spending the money for gas and stomping around a large farm to pick your own if it's not to get great quality at a reasonable price. They even threaten to charge you for sampling. We felt taken after paying for the fruit we picked, which truly took away from the experience.

This was my last time visiting Lawrence Farms. There are too many other farms to pick from.

Love Lawerence farms orchards. I have been coming since I was a kid and now I bring my own. Great day to experience picking veggies or fruit. They have a lot to offer. The views are amazing and bring a picnic lunch or have a snack they offer a concession stand on site. Its a good wholesome family fun day or romantic walk through the orchards. They have goats, horse and ducks to check out amongst other things to do great day trip.
