Late Summer 2017

We have Gala apples ready now. And the Jonathan apples are coming along nicely. We'll let you pick them both, but the Jonathans will get better in the coming weeks. Click on "Orchard Update" for details.

As in recent years, apples will be sold by the bag. You'll need to stop in our little store to purchase yours, before you head out to the orchard.

We plan to have the tractor running on a limited basis for the last few weekends before Labor Day.

There are still peaches in the orchard. We'll let you pick those, too. It is the end of the season for them, so it takes a bit more work to find them.

The "official" tractor, with Lexie as an escort, will start running on Labor Day weekend. Until then, you may drive out to the peach orchard to find tasty, tree-ripened freestone peaches.

We do have our usual free fun things: animals to visit, and the children's play area including our three-story maze.

When you arrive at the farm, check in first at our on-farm store. That's in the little brown barn with the porch, located near the gravel 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 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!"
