Come and pick your own apples in our apple garden that is located only 15 kilometres from Budapest. Besides the apple trees and our apple juice, we also offer petting zoo for our visitors. In our 10 hectares orchard, you will have the opportunity to relax and find your favourite apple varieties. Meanwhile, the adults are picking apples; the children can visit our petting zoo.

Rules of the programme

  • Only those are permitted to enter the orchard's area that come with the purpose to pick apples. Minimum quantity is 10 kg of apples / person, but this rule does not apply to your children so feel free to bring the whole family :)
  • Kindergartens, elementary school classes or groups need to notify us of their planned arrival. Click here to send us a message. If you forget it, we will send the group back on the spot.
  • Each apple picker is obliged to have its boxes or bags measured. Our colleagues will attach an id to the measured boxes. When you finished picking apples, you will have your full boxes measured again. Based on the previously assigned id we will know the weight of the empty box and subtract it from the measured total weight. Picking apples into unidentified boxes or bags is forbidden.
  • The animals in the petting zoo are kept in ideal conditions. If you throw all the prepared straw beside the corral, you are causing damage to them. Please feed them only with a handful of straw. Think about it: if you gave them everything, you would not be able to take a photo with them as they will merely focus on the food and not on you.
