Agape Organics A.K.A. The Apple Basket

Washoe Valley

from website: Agape Organics A.K.A. The Apple Basket is the only commercial USDA certified organic apple orchard in Northern Nevada. Located at 7425 Franktown Road in Washoe Valley, the Apple Basket orchard offers pick-your-own apples from mid-September through October. The orchard sits on the division between the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Great Basin, just east of Lake Tahoe. The five acre property also includes a gift shop and picnic area. The pristine waters of the Washoe Valley aquifer yields apples of exceptional quality including Braeburn, Cameo, Gala and Golden Delicious varieties. The Apple Basket has become a popular destination for Reno and Carson City locals who make wandering the orchard hunting for the perfect apple an annual Fall tradition. Children also enjoy watching the many varieties of free range chicken that live in the orchard that provide additional pest control. A picnic area, children’s play area and small gift shop have been added to the farm in the last few years.
