Draper Girls Country Farm
Specializing in Non-Pasteurized Apple Cider and U-Pick Produce

Established 1962
We are extremely grateful that nature created such a beautiful place for us to call home. We have created a picturesque environment on our farm using the natural landscape for the enjoyment of visitors. This environment is something that the business owners and operators take pride in on a daily basis. The Farm staff and additional outside contractors spend numerous hours maintaining this property every week. It is natural for people to want to take photos in the area. Personal photos may be taken in public areas, although in exchange we request that you support the local businesses by purchasing items from them. Professional photographers (defined as persons being paid in cash or barter for the photos or bring professional props on site) are expected to act as professionals and pay a site fee. This includes photographers for whom photography is not their primary source of income. We reserve the right to use photographs taken on our property for commercial purposes of our own.

I am an artist - can I paint or take photos in the orchard?

There are times of year when access to the orchard is not permissible due to necessary orchard maintenance. For this reason, artists must call ahead to arrange special permission to enter the orchard and even then be prepared for a last minute change of plans. There are several beautiful areas on the property that are open to the public and do not require advance permission.

Can I hold a commercial photo or video shoot?
