Riamede Farm in Chester, New Jersey, for apple picking, pumpkin picking, cider, donuts, and hay wagon rides - its pick-your-own!
We believe Riamede Farm was the first pick-your-own apple orchard in New Jersey, having opened its orchards to the public during harvest back in 1974. We have apple pickers who arrive today with their young child in tow and tell us that Riamede Farm was their favorite fall outing when they were their child's age.
Our orchard is 35 acres with half of this acreage still nurturing big old seedling apple trees planted a half century ago. The old trees are genuine antiques and provide our farm with a 19th century feeling. Possibly Johnny Appleseed passed through many years ago.
