Harvest Season!

Many of our apple varieties will reach their peak over the next few weeks!  Sunny days and cool nights have helped the ripening process.  Autumn officially begins this week – a perfect time to make a trip out to the orchard!

This weekend we have Gala, McIntosh, Jonagold, Macoun and Empire apples.  These are great eating and baking apples  – Have a sample and find your favorite.  Cider is also available.

In addition to apples, we have preserves, apple and pumpkin butter, local honey, peanut brittle, popcorn balls and cider.  These make great gifts or treats for the ride back home!
