HONEYCRISP, CORTLAND & MACOUN NOW READY

Apples are ripening sooner than we expected – so we now have Honeycrisp, Cortland and Macoun ready to pick as well as Macintosh, Gala and some remaining Ginger Gold.

The newly ripe varieties are down the hill – look at the orchard map – follow the blue tape.  Lots of good fruit – pick the red ones – leave the others to ripen next week.

Cider is available now – donuts will be here Saturday and Sunday.

Look forward to seeing you!!

OPEN TOMORROW, SATURDAY & SUNDAY

We start our regular season tomorrow Friday September 7.   Open days will be Tuesday thru Sunday 9:00 to 5:30 – closed Mondays.

Ginger Gold, Gala and Macintosh will be available for picking.   Ginger Golds are the ripest apples, followed by the Galas (pick the reddest ones).    There are plenty of Macintosh – they will be on the tart side – our northern apples don’t ripen well in the hot weather.  Fruit will be riper next weekend.

Early apple weekend customers picked almost all of the Zestars and Sansas.  Honeycrisp are ripening slowly – they will likely start after Sept 16 – I will keep you posted.

If the weather forecast is correct, it will be cooler this weekend.  There will be cider AND donuts on Saturday and Sunday.  New scales are working well for folks bringing their own bags.

Come see us !!
