Sunrise in Washington County!

Bonus Business Day: November 8

Good news apple lovers! We still have Yellow Delicious and Ida Red available and as such we will be open one additional day this season: Wednesday, November 8. We will open at noon and will close when the last bushel sells. We suggest calling the orchard before coming out to check on “the inventory”.

This is our last full-time season, but we hope to be open for a few “harvest weekends” in 2018. Please check the website next fall and/or follow us on Facebook for info.

Thank you so much to all the friends, regulars and neighbors who stopped in with cards, kinds words and one amazing apple pie! We appreciate your business and support that you’ve given to us over the past three decades.

We wish you a wonderful fall and holiday season!

Important Orchard Announcement

With mixed emotions, we wanted to let all our friends know that this will be our LAST season of operation. We love our farm (we are not selling, just stepping back from commercial operations), our customers and our community. Please keep following the orchard here on our website and on Facebook – we may have some special ‘harvest weekends’ next fall & be open a limited number of weekends!

We will be open through Sunday, Nov. 5 & hope to see you before we close.

NEW this weekend: IDA RED apples!

October 14-15

This weekend we have Red Delicious, Yellow (Golden) Delicious, Jonagold and Jonathan apples. Great options for snacking and baking! We also have plenty of local apple cider and honey, and our Amish jams make great gifts, too.

We hope you can pay a visit to the orchard soon, just like this butterfly!

October 7-8

Just a quick update to let you know the varieties we have this weekend.

We’ve got Jonathan (a great cooking apple) and Yellow Delicious (eating and baking). New this weekend is Jonagold, which is actually a cross between Jonathan and Yellow Delicious! Jonagold is a bit different from its “parents”, but is great for snacking and baking, too. This year’s Jonagold are HUGE! Come check them out!

Welcome, October!

October marks the arrival of several new apple varieties!  This weekend we have Gala, Jonathan, Spartan and Yellow Delicious.

We also have a very limited supply of Empire. Mother Nature just didn’t work in our favor this year. If Empire is your favorite, you might want to make a point of visiting this orchard this weekend.

We also have apple cider, jams, local Bedillion honey and more. Now that fall weather has returned we’re in the mood to bake some apple treats and whip up some apple sauce!

September 13 to 17

How is it mid-September already! Time is flying by but the good news is APPLE CIDER has arrived and more apple varieties will be ready for harvest shortly.

Please call the orchard ahead of your visit to check on availability of your favorite variety and our harvest timeline. Cortland are almost ready for picking. Stay tuned.

This week we have GALA, GINGER GOLD and McINTOSH apples. All are great eating apples depending on your tastes. Gala is the sweetest and McIntosh is on the tart side. All would serve you well in baking and sauce-making pursuits, as well! Come out to the orchard this week and sample an apple to see which variety you like best!
