Happy 2011

We will be open for the season on
Friday, September 23rd.

As always, we will be open 7 days a week
from 10 am to 6pm.

On opening day we will have available
Honey Crisp
& Cortland apples
 as well as a good variety of
home baked pies!

2011 brought some weather challenges, but for the most part the crop is quite nice. You will see more marks on some of the apples this year. Last fall I had several requests for chemical free apples, so this year we tried to get by without doing any spraying. I will admit that I am not pleased with the results. Due to the frequent rains, and high humidity there is a percentage of the apples that have scab. Although it doesn't affect the quality of the fruit itself, the peeling isn't as pretty. We did use a variety of pheramone traps, but I still am finding a small percentage of fruit that have a little extra protein in them.(translate - worms) I apologise in advance if we miss any of those in the sorting process, and will gladly replace or refund if you aren't 100% happy with the apples that you buy.


This is the second year of our Harvest Festival, & this year we are a sponsor of the Art Meander.
The event will take place both Saturday & Sunday, and we have added many activities and vendors this year. Bring the family, and enjoy a wonderful day full of fall activities.
