Apple picking weekend 9/16-9/17

Friday, September 15, 2017 7:20 PM

We are starting 4 new varieties of apples for picking this weekend.  Pick your own customers will be able to pick Jonagold, Golden Delicious, Cortland, and Sun Fuji in addition to Jonathan, Smokehouse, and MacIntosh.  You must pay for what you pick in the fields.  If you feel that you must sample, then your picking bag should not be filled full to reflect the amount of apples that were sampled by your picking party.  Your honesty is appreciated.  

Minimum picking requirement is $13.00 per 1/2 peck bag 6-8 apples and $29.00 per 1/2 bushel bag of 22-24 apples.  You may mix varieties. We recommend mixing varieties as that usually produces the best results for pies, sauces, and matching a variety of taste buds.

Picking hours are 9-5 Saturday, and 10-5 on Sunday.  We ask that you allow at least a half hour to pick once you get on our free shuttle. 

There will be no pumpkin picking this weekend, however, we may begin next weekend…stay tuned!  A variety of locally grown decorative pumpinks have arrived and will be for sale at our farm market.  

Saturday kicks off the first day of our fall harvest festival weekends.  We predict that we will have different events, artisans, vendors for you to enjoy each weekend through our finale on  November 4th.  More details later, but save the date!!
