2014Columbus day week 036

Apple picking is limited unless you want Fuji or do not have a preference.  Fuji are sweet.  Great for fresh eating and adding to apple sauce!

There are a few Cortlands and Idareds…fewer still Crispin and Golden Delicious to pick.  

There is still a great selection of pumpkins!  2014Columbus day week 013

We have lots of apples, apple cider, pumpkins and winter squash.

Plan on us for your Thanksgiving source of apples, squash and freshly pressed sweet apple cider for your family FEAST!!

We are open in November.  Please check back on the hours of operation.

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!


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.


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


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