"We have a great crop," said Brennan. "Big apples and a great diversity of assortment."
Apple picking is a popular fall activity for many and as Beak & Skiff welcomes guests to the orchard they are also making COVID-19 safety a priority.
"Luckily for us, we are an outdoor environment so people can come here and feel safe and spread out," said Brennan. "We encourage people to wear masks inside. All of our employees are wearing masks now, so we are taking that pretty seriously."
This weekend they will be picking McIntosh apples, a favorite for New Yorkers according to Brennan.
