Wow, it's hard to believe that schools are starting and that apple season is almost here! We had a very nice peach crop - thank you to all our customers who gave them a good home! Check the "Orchard Update" to see what is available right now.
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. And our old friends are still there - even Porkchop the pig!
We should have our new calendar up soon. We are working to add more family friendly activities and events. And we are always striving to improve our facility. We stay active all winter and spring.
We are selling our delicious pies and other goodies on Saturday mornings at the Land of Goshen Community Market in Edwardsville. We certainly hope you can come visit us there, as well as check out all the other wonderful local vendors who participate.
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!"
