 macheart  We want to take this time to thank all of you, our customers, for another year of coming to our farm.  We know that you can  go the Dave’s, or Stop and Shop, or Whole Foods to get your apples, berries, corn and Home Depot or Walmart for your pumpkins.  It may be easier,  or more convenient in all of your busy schedules, but we thank all of you who choose to support us, a local orchard/farm.   We try very hard to give the best we can each season.  We appreciate your extra effort to stop in or call to get your Honeycrisp, blueberries pumpkins and sweet apple cider during the harvest season.  We hope to see you next year.  We’ll be working hard over the next 8 months when we reopen in late July 2017 to bring you more quality food (as long as nature permits.)

We wish you all a happy, healthy winter and spring season.

We are done with apple picking from the trees, but our harvest happened in September at the best stage for flavor and to store the apples properly.  

We have lots of Honeycrisp available in our farm market.
