Join us for an early summer orchard run/walk where you are treated to a pour of Traverse City Cherry Hard Cider and a fresh donut when you finish!

How It Works

Come and celebrate the fruit set with us!

Apple trees set fruit in the spring and the apples mature from late summer through fall. We will have one official Fruit Set contest tree marked in the orchard.

Take a guess at how many apples that tree is going to produce and WIN A BUSHEL OF APPLES from it! Winner will be announced at our Fall race, Scrumpy Skedaddle. You are not required to be present to win, but you will need to pick up your prize at Almar Orchards.*

*Contest will run as long as Mother Nature agrees with the apple trees!
