Christmas tree sales begin on the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 27th. We'll have fresh cut Fraser Firs (in water), as well as a limited selection of choose-and-cut Scotch Pine. You can have a tractor ride either way, of course.
Granny Smith apples are available in our store even though pick-your-own season is over. Everyone knows Granny Smith are good for pies, but they are great for eating, too. Their flavor is fabulous when they've ripened on the tree. Come taste one and see!
The bakery is producing all your favorite goodies: Fruit pies of all flavors, giant chocolate chip and flaxseed oatmeal cookies, decorated sugar cookies, turnovers and more. Feel free to call ahead so we'll have what you want when you arrive. We're taking orders now for holiday pies and cookies.
The tractor is running on the weekends and Molly the German Shepherd usually escorts it. The geese and the ducks are swimming on the pond. There are new young chickens to visit - can you tell which ones lay green eggs? Tom Turkey will gladly gobble for you. The chief engineer has his train engine out most weekend afternoons for rides. The bunnies need a leafy snack. And of course there are the kitties, including Felix, our newest young cat.
As you may 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 will have temporary operations in place in order to continue to do business. Please bear with us during this season.
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!"
