Empires are now ready – see photo. McIntosh, Cortland, Gala and Macoun in good supply (but not as many as earlier in the season). Weather forecast is for good apple picking weather. Saturday looks to be sunnier than Sunday.
The donut team will be back in action – donuts tend to run out by mid afternoon. Last weekend they made 1500 donuts. We will have hot and cold cider by the cup, as well 1/2 gallon and 1 gallon jugs while our supply lasts.
Next weekend ( Saturday October 12 & Sunday October 13 ) will be the end of our harvest season. Late ripening varieties – Crimson Crisp, Northern Spy & Golden Delicious will open for picking on Friday October 11 – all have fairly small crops and they will get picked out rapidly.
Come get your next round of apples !!
