The late season apples are ready – we have taken down the red tape. There is a small crop of very nice Golden Delicious and Northern Spy on three year old trees.  There  is a somewhat larger crop of bright red Crimson Crisp on three year old and seven year old trees.  These varieties will get picked out quickly.

MacIntosh in the old orchard are plentiful, juicy and full flavored.   Cortland, Macoun, Empire and Gala are all prime as well.  Honeycrisp are scarce, except for drops.

There will be cider and donuts on the weekend.  Donuts run out, so come early.

We will be closed on Monday Oct 9 (Columbus Day) and we will then be open thru the weekend of Saturday Oct 14 and Sunday Oct 15.

Still good MacIntosh, Cortland, Macoun, Empire, Gala and Fuji.  Honeycrisp are mostly picked except for drops.

The late season apples (behind the red tape) will start on Friday (Oct 6)

Frequently asked questions:

1)  Will you be open Columbus Day Weekend?  – Yes on Saturday and Sunday but not Monday.

2)  How late in the month will you be open?  – We expect to be open thru Oct 14 & 15 weekend – possibly a few days more.

3)  Do you still have Honeycrisp? – very few mostly drops.

4)  When is a good time for drops? – NOW – you pick them up – they are half price.


Excellent picking for MacIntosh, Cortland, Empire, Macoun, Gala and Fuji.  There are still good Honeycrisp when you go all the way down the hill – they will be essentially picked out by the end of the weekend.  There are good drops available for most varieties at half price.

Cider and donuts will both be on hand Saturday and Sunday – donuts often run out in the afternoon.

Come enjoy picking now that we have good apple picking weather – high temperature forecast for Saturday is 55 degrees and 63 degrees for Sunday.


We will start picking Empires tomorrow (Thursday Sept 28) – there is a good crop – see photo.  Forecast is (finally) for cooler weather – come before the weekend to beat the crowds.

Honeycrisp are best in the bottom block below the three Cortland rows.  Macouns are good at the bottom  rows below the Honeycrisp.  MacIntosh good in several places, especially the old orchard.  Cortlands are good in the bottom three rows and the last row in the old orchard.  Gala and Fuji also have good picking.


Empires 9 27 - Copy


We will be back open tomorrow after our Monday off.  Still good Honeycrisp –  fewer by the weekend – don’t wait too long.  MacIntosh, Cortland, Gala, Macoun and Fuji continue to be in good supply, but a good many have been picked.

Empires will open on Thursday.  We have two more hot days forecast, so come early.

We expect to be open thru Columbus Day weekend (but not Monday).   There will be fewer apples than we have now.  Come now while the picking is easier.
