All of a sudden it feels like spring. Some days, at least. We're still busy trying to get our winter work done. No vacation trips to Florida on an apple farm. Before you know it, the trees will be in bloom and the bees will be buzzing.
It hasn't been as bitterly cold as last winter, so at this point (cross your fingers!) it looks like we have good peach buds. We just need stable spring weather to keep those buds growing into pretty flowers and good tasting peaches.
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!"
