Visit Rinker’s Orchard to pick-your-own apples!
We take our traditions very seriously here at Rinker Orchards, and we know it wouldn’t be apple season without the local Stephens City Lions Club here making their famous apple butter! Join us on September 14 and 21 to watch members of the club make their famous apple butter and to pick some up to take home with you. This is an annual fundraiser that provides support for their many charitable projects throughout the year.
Crim’s Concessions will be on site September 14 making fresh kettle corn! It goes great with Rinker’s cider!
Regular and sugar free varieties available.
Rinker’s is open Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from 10:00am – 5:00pm! (September 6 through Columbus Day, October 14th, 2019.)
