Just FYI to everyone, we will be open today and tomorrow afternoon for business, as well as all day Saturday and Sunday. Right now we have:
  • McIntosh (they are all pre-picked)
  • Jonathan
  • Cortlands
  • Macouns
  • Jonagolds
We have sold out of Gala and Honey Crisp, but there's still lots and lots of apples to choose from!  We have lots of fresh pressed cider, and are still taking appointments for custom pressing.

Happy Fall!

Hello!  We are the new owners of Paradise Valley Orchard, Lorin and Ali Harrison.  We are proud to say that we are continuing the legacy of Paradise Valley Orchard and offering all the same services as before.  So stop by and see use!  We are excited to meet all the customers that have been patrons of this farm in past years.  Our services include:
  • U-pick apples
  • Pre-picked apples
  • Fresh apple cider (unpasteurized)
  • Custom apple cider pressing
We did not plant a pumpkin patch this year (a combination of bad timing and a wet spring), but will for sure be doing a pumpkin patch next year.

Please feel free to call us at 435-245-6203 if you have any questions or want to schedule an apple pressing.  You can also write us an email at  Also, at this point we do not have set hours.  Just give us a call and let us know when you would like to come and visit.  

We plan on updating the blog regularly, so check back with us to see what we are up to and what's available.

Best, Lorin and Ali Harrison

Hard Cider Press - SOLD OUT

Thanks for a great response. We are SOLD OUT of cider from this press. 

Each fall we do a custom cider press specifically for hard cider makers (including us at Paradise Valley Orchard). The custom blend includes varieties that give a balanced semi-dry cider. This years blend includes 60% neutral base apples (Honey Crisp, Red Free and Harlason), 15% tart (Wealthy and Jonathan), 15% aromatic (Macintosh and Cortland) and 10% astringent for their high tannin content (Whitney crab as well as some wild/unnamed volunteer trees).

We are going to complete the press on Thursday morning October 21. If you are interested in cider from this press, e-mail or phone us to reserve what you need. The price is same $6/gallon, reduced pricing is available for folks who bring their carboy to us before hand (which is encouraged). We ask that you get your containers to us before 9:00 am, we will get them filled and hold in refrigerated storage for pick-up at your convenience.
