Top-rated in New England, Mack’s Apples is THE place to pick your own! With dozens of apple orchards, and pumpkin patches next to almost every one, it’s one fun experience. U-Pick Stations open around early September and the season typically runs through November 1st. There are places to picnic, trails to hike, and in certain orchards, observation decks for you to take in all the glory of harvest in New Hampshire.

The U-Pick Stations work on the honor system. Purchase a bag for your apples as you enter the orchard – we accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover, cash, or an in-state check – then pick away! While it’s understandable to be an enthusiastic picker, it is asked that bags are not overfilled. There will be additional charges by the pound for over-heaped bags; when you do the math, a properly filled bag is the best bargain!
Next to a majority of the apple orchards lay fields of pumpkins. Pick a pumpkin, then bring it back to the U-Pick station for weighing and payment! In addition, tons (literally) of pumpkins can often be found at the main farm stand for purchase.
Mack’s Apples is the largest pick your own destination in New Hampshire. With many different U-Pick stations, you’ll want to drive between each one and the main farm stand. Watch for the signs and maps at each one to know which are open for picking and how to get there.
Other things to note:
- Water and soda are available for purchase at the U-Pick stations.
- Out of state checks are not accepted at any of the U-Pick locations.
Make a day of your visit! Bring a picnic lunch – there are many spots to have a picnic around the farm. One real nice spot is just north of the historic barn, by the farm pond. Picnic tables available on a first-come basis. Stroll the trails – there is a very nice trail connecting a couple of the major orchards, with a connector that runs through the forest in between. It’s called the Adams Pond Trail and is maintained by Londonderry Trailways. Visit their site for a map.
