The PYO Experience

 Welcome to Waters Orchard!

"The most beautiful pick your own apple orchard in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area"



It's Apple Season!

We are open for pick-your-own apples from 9-5 on Saturday and Sunday, October 19-20.

We have good supply of Pink Lady and a limited supply of Galarina apples available for picking.

We know you've heard the saying "don't judge a book by its cover" - here at Waters Orchard, we think that saying should apply to apples too!

This year, Mother Nature gave us a nice crop of great tasting apples. However, she left her mark on those apples by giving us a hail storm in early June. The hail left the apples slightly blemished, but they are still tastier than ever. So although the apples might look a little different, remember it's what's on the inside that counts! 

We look forward to seeing you soon. Please join us for a glass of Doc Waters hard cider or apple juice while you're here!  




Pick Your Own Experience


 Escape to the most beautiful apple orchard in Montgomery County! After parking, simply purchase your apple picking bag and take the short trail up to the orchard. From there it’s as easy as reach, twist, and lift until your apple bag is full.

All apples picked must fit inside the bag you purchase.
