Happy Fall Y’all!




Head to Eastmont Orchards for some family fun this season! A truly iconic Monmouth County destination, Eastmont Orchards (formerly Delicious Orchards) has been owned by the Barclay family since 1923. In those days apples grown in this area were sold locally or shipped by barges out of Red Bank, down the Navesink River all the way to New York City. Later, as transportation improved, fruit was shipped directly to supermarkets or exported from the shipping ports of New York City and Philadelphia. Today they sell all of our products retail and direct to the consumer via “pick-your-own.”  Beginning in September, Eastmont also offers gourds, mums, pumpkins, and more seasonal veggies. The farm provides the perfect backdrop to take Fall fun photos with the fam. Planning professional pictures this season? You can schedule your session on the farm too! Click here for more information.

   On weekends beginning on September 17th, entry is $2 (for ages 2 and up). Check out food vendors including mini donuts, apple cider, popcorn, roasted corn by Tasty Treats, ice cream, and hot dogs from Lady Marie! Hayrides are offered from 10:30 am – 3:30 pm ($5 per person age 2 and up). Although Weekends are jamming, Eastmont Orchards also encourages customers to come mid-week to enjoy the view, and there is no admission fee. If you are looking to bring school groups, or large groups with buses, they allow that as well (inquire within). No reservation is necessary! Please direct any questions to [email protected] for more information or check out our FAQ portion of their website.
