  • 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

    Pennings Orchard

    offers apple & pumpkin picking, farm animal visits, play areas, picnic areas and night picking hours too

    Too busy to pick during the day? No problem, at Pennings Orchard you can pick at night, after dark!


  • 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!

    Be sure to include your name or the name of the recipe’s source for proper credit.





    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.





    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.





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

    Have adult core apples or show child how to core apples with an apple corer. Child can place apples in microwave safe dish.

    In each apple add 1 tablespoon of butter, 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar and sprinkle with cinnamon.

    Add a little water to the bottom of the dish.

    Microwave 4-5 minutes.

    Don’t forget to use pot holders to remove dish from microwave. Let apples sit for a few minutes before eating.





    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. Fold the tortilla over the filling. Microwave on high, for about 1 minute. Cut the tortilla in half or thirds and serve.

    NOTE: Be sure to let these cool awhile. The cheese in the tortillas stays HOT for a few minutes!





    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...





    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.





    1 gal. (4 qt.) Apple Cider
    About a cup of orange juice
    Orange slices a nice touch...
    2- 4 cinnamon sticks
    PLACE all ingredients in large saucepan. Cook on low heat 20 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. (Do not boil.) Can also be made in crock pot…
    REMOVE cinnamon sticks Serve warm.
    Great for the Holidays and winter Days!





    Ingredients: 4lbs. apples, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon cloves (ground)

    Core and quarter unpeeled apples; chop or put in blender with water and vinegar.
    Cook in a saucepan over low heat until the mixture gets thick and turns brown.
    Stir occasionally. This will take 2-3 hours (1/4 of that time in a microwave oven).
    Add sugar and spices and cook for 1/2 hour more.
    Refrigerate, then spread on toast or muffins.

    6 pounds of tart apples
    6 cups apple cider or juice
    3 cups sugar
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

    Core and quarter apples; cook with cider in a large heavy saucepan until soft, about 30 minutes. Press through a food mill. Boil gently 30 minutes; stir often. Stir in sugar and spices. Cook and stir over low heat until sugar dissolves. Boil gently stirring often until desired thickness about 1 hour. Pour into hot 1/2 pint jars adjust lids. Process in boiling water bath 10 minutes. (Start counting time after water returns to a boil.) Makes 8 half-pints.





    You should plan on 1 Granny Smith apple, 4 ounces of low-fat cheddar cheese and 24 whole-grain crackers to serve 12 children.

    • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    • Cut apple into quarters and slice each quarter crosswise into six pieces.
    • Cut cheese into 24 slices, each about 1 inch square.
    • Place 24 crackers on the oven tray and place 1 apple on each cracker.
    • Top the apple with a square of cheese. Bake 3 to 4 minutes or until the cheese begins to melt. 
      Continue cooking until apples are brown and look like apple butter.
