CHANGE OF PLANS – CLOSED TUES, WED, & THUR – THEN LAST TWO DAYS WILL BE FRI SEPT 30 & SAT OCT 1

The very large crowds this past weekend had a great time and picked essentially all the mid season fruit, so we will be closed this week Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

We will open the small crop of later varieties (Empire, Jonagold, Crimson Crisp & Golden Delicious) on Friday.  These will rapidly get picked out, so Saturday Oct 1 will be our last day for the 2016 season.

We knew from early in the growing season that this would be a short crop and we are glad that many people were still able to get nice fruit.   We hope to have a more normal crop next year.

Thanks to everyone who came and picked!!

 

WE STILL HAVE GREAT VIEWS (AND APPLES)

p1070137

The views are as good as ever – there continue to be Galas, Honeycrisps , Cortlands, Macouns and Macs, but not as many as earlier.  There are beginning to be more drops – especially Honeycrisp.

We will start our late varieties ( Empire, Jonagold, Golden Delicious and Crimson Crisp) on Friday Sept 30.

Saturday Oct 1  & Sunday Oct 2 will be our last weekend and we expect to close by Thursday Oct 6 – we will not have enough apples to be open Columbus Day weekend.

There will be cider all week – donuts on both weekends.  The wooden apple has not yet been found.

Come see us!!

 

STILL PICKING

We had lots of folks up this past weekend and lots of Honeycrisps and other varieties were picked.  This week we will continue to have Honeycrisp, Gala, Cortland, MacIntosh, Macoun and Fuji.

There be Honeycrisps this weekend, but fewer than last weekend.  There are also beginning to be some Mac and Honeycrisp drops.

At this point we expect to have enough apples to be open this coming weekend (Sept 24 & Sept 25), thru the weekend of Oct 1 & Oct 2 and wind down by mid week – probably Oct 5.

The late varieties – Empire, Jonagold,  and Crimson Crisp will start on Oct 1 – possibly a day or two earlier.

Come get your apples while we still have fruit.  Weather forecast is for cool weather.

HONEYCRISP, CORTLAND, MACOUN AND FUJI READY FOR PICKING

The mid season apples are ripe, so we have opened up picking today for Honeycrisp, Cortland, Macoun and Fuji.  There still are good Galas – Macs are more of a treasure hunt.

The Honeycrisp crop is bigger than we originally thought.  They may (or may not) last a couple of weeks depending on how many folks come this weekend.  Honeycrisp do ripen in stages, so pick the red ones and leave the green ones to ripen a bit more for next week.

There is cider all week – Mrs. Murphy’s   donuts will be here on the weekend.  The wooden IPod apple will go out tonight – finder wins an IPod.

Weather looks good Friday and Saturday – not so good Sunday (but there will be donuts).  Come help us get the apples picked.

Some nice Honeycrisp

GOOD MACS AND GALAS

There are good Macs and Galas for tomorrow Sunday Sept 11 and they will be good thru the rest of the week except Monday when we are closed.

There will be more of Mrs. Murphy’s donuts on Sunday, and cider all week.

Honeycrisp will start on Saturday Sept 17.

Come see us.
