It's mid-October already! There is still some limited apple picking - everyone should have that experience! And you are welcome to ride the wagon and meet Lexie, the German Shepherd puppy, whether you pick apples or not.
Because Mother Nature didn't give us as many apples as we would like this year, we have been bringing in some very nice local apples to sell in our on-farm store. We want to be sure everyone has enough tree-ripened goodness to enjoy. Check the "Orchard Update" to see what is available right now.
We're sorry to say that our Pumpkin Patch has run out of pumpkins. We hope next year is a better pumpkin growing season for everyone.
We do have our usual free fun things: wagon rides through the orchard, animals to visit, and the children's play area including our three-story maze.
When you come to the farm, check in first at our on-farm store. That's in the little brown barn near the parking lot. Our staff can fill you in on what fruit is available that day, as well as other fun things happening on the farm.
As always, we have friends to visit with: two young geese and some cute little bunnies are new this year. And our old friends are still there - even Porkchop the pig!
As many of you already know, our iconic red apple barn (the main building) was completely destroyed by fire on May 4, 2014. Our market, bakery, cider operation, wreath making equipment, coolers, walk-in freezer (which contained hundreds of gallons of cider and many apple pies worth of filling), and countless other items were totally lost. With over thirty years in business, we had accumulated a lot of stuff, and guess where it was stored.
We intend to rebuild. We want to make it better. We want to do it right. In the interim, we have temporary operations in place in order to continue to do business. Please bear with us during the coming seasons.
Just a note: the parking is free, the play area is free, the wagon ride is free, and the country ambiance is free. We are family owned and operated; our bakery goods are hand made on-site and our apples aren't always as pretty as the store bought varieties - but they usually taste better. We aren't a big operation, but we put a lot of heart into making you feel at home. So take a break from reality, put down your iPhone, "Come visit us!"
