Silverman's Farm in Easton says Monday was the last day customers could come pick their own apples.
The season usually runs through the third week of October, but the ongoing drought has left apple trees almost bare. The farm grows about 20 different apple varieties on its 30-acre space.
The crop was much smaller this year due to the dryness, farm workers say. The overall size of the apples went down as well.
The farm still has apples available for sale that employees are harvesting. That supply is expected to last until Christmas.
