APPLE PICKING UPDATE!!!

We still have two varieties that are in abundance and low enough to reach.  The sweet Fuji apple and great all-purpose Crispin (Mutsu) apple.  

Although there are some of the other varieties (Cortland, Gala McIntosh Red Delicious Idared and Macoun) many are high and not in great abundance.  Right now you could fill your bag with any of these, but by the end of the day tomorrow…maybe not. We’ll try to update tomorrow night!

RASPBERRIES

We still have beautiful raspberries to pick.  Please call before you come if you are only coming for raspberries, because they can be quickly picked over.

CHERRY TOMATOES!!!

There are also cherry tomatoes….Lots of orange, red and black cherry and some red grape!!]

HAYRIDES!!  FRESH APPLE CIDER!! 

FREE Tractor drawn Hayrides will run on Sunday from 1pm-4pm.  Come out and get some great food!!

Our orchard is full of ripe Honeycrisp, Gala, McIntosh, Macoun, Cortland, Fuji, and Liberty.  A few Jonagold are starting to turn. 

We are also open on Pole Bridge Road this weekend.

Our cider pressing started early today 6:30am!  Make time for a tasty farm visit this weekend

Open 9am-5pm Saturday and Sunday.  Please come by 4:15 to pick.  

 

We have found that we must communicate the following…..Please also note:

Dogs are not allowed in the orchard or in our farm market,

Only fanny packs and hand purses/change purses are allowed into the orchard.  Only bags that you will be picking into are allowed in the orchard during picking season.  Other backpacks, tote bags, large purses etc must be left in your vehicle.  Extra apples that do not fit in your picking bag must be paid for separately.

Please stay on the ground during picking.  If you see apples up high, please do not climb the trees to pick them.  There are plenty of low apples all over.  Please walk further to find them, or ask us where to pick apples within reach.

We ask that you please respect our rules when you are at our farm.  

There is a minimum of 4 people to a peck (10-12 lbs), and 6 people to a half bushel (20-22 lbs).  We also ask that anyone who walks out into our orchard purchases at least a peck (10 lbs) of apples.  

We hope all of our customers have a great experience at our farm.  If there are any issues or concerns please tell us or one of our staff.
