We are winding up a great harvest – we have seen lots and lots of familiar folks and many new ones as well.
Wednesday Oct 15 will be our last day. As I said in yesterday’s post, there are still good McIntosh in the old orchard, lesser amounts of Cortland, Fuji, and Empire in the new orchard – drops throughout the orchard.
After we close, we will pick remaining apples for the Manchester Food Cupboard and a farmer will get drops to make cider vinegar. The turkeys, the mice and the foxes will take care of the rest.
If you can not make it up tomorrow, you can get good apples already picked at Dutton’s Farm Stand (tel 802-362-3083) 1 mile east (towards Bromley Mtn) off exit 4 on the new Rt 7. They will have apples all winter including utility grade for cooking and sauce.
So thanks for making it a good harvest – if we don’t see you tomorrow, we look forward to seeing you next year!
