Whenever we think of fall, apples come to mind immediately. We've been having a good year here at the orchard, and we thank our customers for that! We've heard from so many that they are very glad to have us open again, and we truly appreciate that! We missed seeing all of our friends and customers, too, and we enjoy catching up on the past couple of years.
Most of the picking for the broker is done, and we have plenty of apples left on the trees for those of you who want to pick your own. People have really enjoyed the u-pick, and it's been fun for us to watch little kids enjoying an apple they picked themselves! They are so excited! We currently have Zestar!, Honey Crisp, Haralson and RubyJon. There will be a very small number of Firesides later in the month.
The pears were a real hit this year, and hopefully you got a chance to try them; if not, there's always next year. I've started a list of those who want to be notified when pears are ready next year!
We are planning to be open at least through the end of October, and later if there is demand for apples. If you haven't yet made it out t o the orchard, we hope to see you soon!
