    Milking Cows

    Jack and Monica's Cow Milking Operation in Full Swing

  • The pennings family has been farming in Warwick, New York for over half a century. The original farm was located just 2 miles across town, and was a dairy farm. The Orchard was later acquired by Jack Pennings from the well known Park family

     

    The farm has since been purchased by Jack and Monica Pennings for their daughters, Kaelyn and Cammie

     

    It is nestled in the Warwick Valley hillside, just 3 miles south of the historic Town Of Warwick, New York

     

    We offer you over 15 varieties of apples, always ready to pick at different times throughout the season

     

    We have continued to plant many more varieties of apples on dwarf trees, rather than the large type trees which were so popular up until the 1940s and 1950s

     

    Our Orchard offers up some of the best Scenic Vistas, Crisp Country Air, Breathtaking Fall Foliage & much more!

     

    Best of all, you get to take home our delicious and healthy apples!!!!

    And Don’t Forget

    We Don’t Just Grow Fruit, More Importantly We Grow Family Memories

     

    We are open for apple picking!

  • The Proper Way to Pick Our Apples…

    You will see that there are almost always two apples growing stem to stem, and many more along the branch. After deciding which group of two apples you want, you pick them in the following manner:

    Place the palms of your hands on each apple, at the same time. Gently use your fingers – without putting too much pressure on the apples – to twist and turn the two apples either upward or downward until they release. If there is anything more than the stems on your apples after they release, then you didn’t quite do it as we do. It’s ok, as long as you don’t drop any and don’t shake off any apples from the tree.

    After you have the two apples in your hands, place them gently in your bag (we don’t charge by the pound, we charge by the 1/2 bushel bag that we supply). When your bag(s) are full, put them in your trunk or car.

    We hope that you and your family have a great day picking apples at Pennings Orchard and will continue to year after year!

     

    The Proper Way to Store Apples…

    Store your apples in the coolest place you may have. If you have room, apples stored in the fridge stay fresher twice as long!

     

    Handle gently to prevent bruising. Refrigerate your apples in the crisper section of your fridge; cool air maintains juiciness, quality and crispness.

     

    If unable to store in the fridge, remove apples from your U-Pick bag and store in a cardboard box with holes in the side (or ventilated storage bag) away from food with strong odors. Sprinkle with water mister a few times a week.

     

    Did You Know..?

    Apples give off a gas that speeds up the ripening of bananas, kiwis, peaches, plums and pears. Place these fruits in a paper bag with your apples to quicken their ripening!

    APPLE CRUMBLE

     

    Peel and core four large Golden Delicious apples, and cut the apples into 1/4 inch slices. Place the apple slices in a bowl, and toss the apples with 1/4 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, the juice of 1 lemon, and 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Place the apple mixture in a 9x13 baking dish, and spread the apples in an even layer. Set the apples aside, and make the topping.

    To make the topping, combine 1 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts, 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1/4 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Use a pastry cutter to roughly incorporate 1 stick of chilled unsalted butter into the topping mixture. The mixture should have pea-sized pieces after incorporating the butter.

    Spoon the topping over the apples in an even layer, and bake the crumble at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 45 minutes, or until the crumble is browned and bubbling.

     

     

    APPLE FRITTER

     

    To make the apple fritter recipe, heat a couple of inches of vegetable oil in a heavy pot or Dutch oven over medium to medium low heat until a deep-fry thermometer read 340 degrees Fahrenheit when inserted in the oil. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon and 1 1/4 teaspoons salt. In a separate bowl, beat 2 large eggs, and then add 3/4 cup whole milk, 2 tablespoons melted butter and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Gently fold the wet and dry ingredients together until just combined. Core and dice into small pieces 2 Granny Smith apples. Fold the apples into the batter until very chunky. Drop large tablespoons of the apple batter into the oil, six to eight at a time. Fry for four to six minutes or until golden brown. Remove the fritters, drain excess oil on paper towels, and dust generously with powdered sugar. Serve warm for breakfast or as a lunchtime snack.

     

     

    BAKED APPLES IN MICROWAVE

     

    Ingredients: 2 Granny smith apples, 2 Tablespoons butter, Cinnamon, 2 Tablespoons brown sugar

    Add a little water to the bottom of the dish.

    Microwave 4-5 minutes.

    APPLE AND CHEESE TORTILLA

     

    Ingredients
    1 flour tortilla (6 inch diameter)
    4 tbsp medium cheddar cheese, grated
    1/3 cup thinly sliced or cut up apples

     

    Place the tortilla on a plate and sprinkle 2 tbsp cheddar cheese on 1 half of the tortilla. Place the apple pieces over the cheese. Then sprinkle 2 tbsp cheese over the apple pieces.

    APPLE KABOBS

     

    1 large red apple cut into 8 wedges
    6 marshmallows
    Small jar creamy peanut butter (if no allergies)
    A large banana

     

    To make a kabob, carefully push a skewer through the ingredients, starting with a piece of apple, then a marshmallow, then banana, then another marshmallow.

    Spread a little peanut butter on top of the marshmallow. Now, skewer a piece of banana and another marshmallow (with more peanut butter) and finish with a piece of apple. *(For allergies use cream cheese or leave plain)

    Repeat with a second skewer. Makes 2 kabobs.
    Tip: Dip apple slices in lemon juice or orange juice so they won't brown...

     

     

    MINI BUTTERSCOTCH OR PEANUT BUTTER CHIP APPLES ON A STICK

     

    Ingredents:
    4 inch lollipop/sucker sticks
    Melon baller
    Granny Smith apples (one apple makes about 8 mini apples)
    Butterscotch or peanut butter chips
    Chopped nuts, nonpareils, sprinkles, shredded coconut (optional)
    Small paper candy cups

     

    Cut the lollipop sticks in half at an angle (the pointy end will go into the apple pieces easier). With the melon baller, scoop little balls out of the apple. Each ball should have a section of apple peel. Push half of a lollipop stick into the peel of each ball. Pat the apple pieces dry.

    Melt the chips according to the package directions. Dip and swirl the mini apples in the melted chips, then roll the apples in nuts, sprinkles, nonpareils, or coconut, if desired. Place the mini apples in paper candy cups to set.
