Soons Orchards is at 23 Soons Circle, New Hampton, New York, 10958 -- conveniently located between Goshen and Middletown New York, in Orange County, about 65 miles northwest of NYC, 45 miles north of Paramus NJ, 35 miles west of West Point, or 25 miles north of Woodbury Commons Outlets in Monroe/Central Valley. We are close to major access roads, so getting here, and getting out, is easy.

**Note!** Our U-Pick apple orchard is a one minute drive away from our store (and U-Pick pumpkins) - just across Rt. 17M - see second map below. You may want to go to U-Pick *first* then come visit the store to pick up lots of goodies, from cider to pie and everything in between!
U-Pick address for your GPS: 632 County Rt 50, New Hampton NY 10958. U-Pick apples re-opens around Labor Day 2012.

From south/ southwest (lower Hudson Valley, Northern New Jersey and New York City): from the NYS Thruway (exit 16) or the Palisades Parkway/Rt. 6 (exit 18), take Route 17 (I86) west to exit 123 (Rt. 17M west toward Middletown); travel about 3 miles ahead; your third stop light is a four way intersection — look for the big Soons sign (and our U-Pick orchard trees on the hill) on your right — take a left at this light; Soons is 1.5 blocks ahead on your left. (To go to U-Pick first, take a right)

From the northeast (Newburgh NY/CT) or southwest (PA/NJ): take Interstate 84 and exit at # 3E; follow Rt. 17M east for approximately 1 mile, bear right at the top of the hill at the antiques place in the big red barn, head down the hill to the traffic light- make this sharp right. (If you miss the bear right off 17M, just make the next right and go two blocks instead of one.) Soons is the next left ahead 200 feet - watch for our signs.

From the northwest (Catskills, upstate NY): take Rt. 17 (I86) east/south to I-84 west (exit 121W). Then take exit 3E onto 17M; follow directions above (from northeast).

On public transit: Shortline runs several express busses a day between Port Authority in NYC and Middletown NY; they take about an hour and a half. (You should note that walking between the U-Pick orchard and the main store is do-able, but not really great, especially when you're toting a bunch of apples! grab a ride with a fellow picker if you can!)
Metro-North/NJ Transit runs trains between Hoboken NJ (and now Penn Station through the Secaucus Transfer) and Middletown NY. Trains take an hour-40 to two hours. Full schedules are
here; click on Main Line/Bergen Line. NOTE hurricane Irene damaged this railline significantly - please check the MTA site for the latest!
The bus is more expensive but the express is faster and offers more service (schedule). (The Shortline bus also stops at Woodbury Commons outlet mall so you can plan a whole day of shopping!) Soons is a short cab ride (about 10-12 minutes) from the bus or train station. Syndicated taxi (845-343-7777) is adjacent to the bus station; another taxi service is Robin's 845-343-5555.




Look for the big Soons
sign on Route 17M -
that's where you turn!
