Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring my dog?

Yes Barton Orchards is now dog friendly just having finished our own dog park. Be advised that dogs must be registered, collared, leashed, except when in the dog park. Please be advised owners must clean up after their dogs whether in the parking lot, on the farm, or in the dog park.

Can I bring outside food or beverages?

As a venue open to the public, Barton's provides ample amounts of beverages. Some of these include beer, wine and hot/cold food and drink along with multiple covered pavilion areas to eat in. No public coolers, food, bottles, etc, allowed onto the property (except for baby bottles and children's snacks). Picnic tables are located outside the entrance as well.

Can I bring my own wagon?

Yes, you can bring your own wagon. Barton Orchards does have wagons on hand to use around the orchard, however, we tend to run out quickly. For safety reasons, children are not allowed to ride in the wagons.

Do you have Wi-Fi?

Yes, we offer free wi-fi for you to use when you are at the orchard.

Do you have restrooms?

Yes, we have restrooms on site. In fact, Barton Orchards has a building off the Midway devoted to solely to restrooms with flush toilets. For those parents with children still in the diaper stage we even have a diaper changing station.

How much does it cost to pick apples?

Apple Bags are sold at the Apple Shack (by the big old Oak tree) during weekends and at the Farm Market weekdays. Two types of bags - Peck Bag *approximately 10lbs or 1/2 Bushel *approximately 20lbs (prices subject to change with seasonal crop). Farm requires apple bag purchase to pick apples. Buy a bag and pack it full. Check out the PYO tab for varieties. Bags are non-refundable. All visitors must pay for all items picked.

Can you get to Barton's via train? Is there a taxi or shuttle service?

Barton Orchards is best reached via car (we are located just outside town of Beekman, next to Dalton Farms Community). The closest Metro North Train station is Pawling - a 15 minute drive away and the Poughkeepsie station is around 40 minutes. Pawling has local taxi services - Google for listings. Cost is about $20 each way. Poughkeepsie is likely $45+ taxi cost. Metro North runs from Grand Central on the Wassaic line.

Is Fall Harvest season crowded? Will there be parking?

Yes and no... as you might expect, Fall Harvest season brings many people out to pick apples and crowds do swell as that is the prime apple picking season! We encourage you to arrive early those weekends. Parking onsite can become busy by early afternoon. Paying by cash also makes everything faster.

What is there to do on the farm with my children?

Barton Orchards offer unlimited hayrides with your weekend admission along with entertainment, hay maze, pumpkin slide, playground, shooting gallery, duck races and gem stone mining bags for purchase. Active children, teenagers and adults definitely enjoy weekends in the Fun Zone or wandering the corn maze. Plenty of walking trails, animals to feed and sunshine! You'll get a good scare at the haunted house - suitable for ages six & up.

October Fridays (weather permitting) Barton's will open the *five-acre Corn Maze. The corn maze runs every weekend thru the end of October - Included in All Day Fun Pass. *Single entry purchase available at the Information Booth.

The farm has rules and security checking bags and backpacks. Why?

Barton Orchards has rules for your safety as well as liability. Venues open to the public should provide a clean, safe environment. Our security asks to check your bags. This is posted on the website and upon admissions. Theft is unfortunately an issue. Personal food and bottles are not allowed onto the farm. The farm spends months planting and tending to provide bountiful crops at great expense to cover a short harvest season. Our staff thrives on making your visit an enjoyable one.

Is there a charge for parking?

No at Barton Orchards we don't charge for parking.

Is there a fee to enter Barton Orchards?

Yes our admission price is $12.00 per person, tax included. Children age 2 and under are free. We have made great improvements in our general admission pricing. It is now one price and includes access and entry to all of the farms activities. This change was made to simplify admission pricing and reduce wait times on the admission lines. It also means that we have many more activities included with your paid admission ticket. Still more great news, now included with your paid admission full access to the fun park.
