Outta nowhere.. A cold and rainy Saturday!!

Posted by on Sep 29, 2017 in Blog | Comments Off on Outta nowhere.. A cold and rainy Saturday!!

Looks like a bit of rain on Saturday.  We are still open!!  Sunday looks beautiful.

We are open normal weekend hours.  Our farm market is stocked with all of our own produce, and sweet apple cider!!

Come out for some yummy ingredients for an afternoon of cozy kitchen baking.  We have lots of freshly picked apples, and sweet white and yellow peaches.  We have picked the first batch of very large butternut squash, and some of  our remaining tomatoes (yes including the orange cherry tomatoes!).  

If you are adventurous…we will open the orchard if you find a spot of dry weather tomorrow, and of course we will be open on Sunday and every day until Halloween (unless apple picking is still good after that.) 

We will have apples, pumpkins, raspberries and cherry tomatoes for picking this weekend.
