It’s a beautiful, blustery fall day for a walk through the orchard. There are apples to pick.
In order of quantity, these varieties are on the trees; Red and Golden Delicious (have you tried a New England Delicious?), Cortland, Gala, Granny Smith, McIntosh and Fuji.
They may be smaller but they are mighty tasty!
Map shows “best picking”.
A beautiful thing!
For PYO there are, in order of quantity, Red and Golden Delicious (have you tried a New England Delicious?), Cortland, Gala, Granny Smith, McIntosh and Fuji.
The selection will be leaning toward small to medium size apples (that drought!)

The next post will include a map to show where the best picking is.

Fuji, Gala, Ruby Mac, McIntosh & Cortland are available to pick now. Golden Supremes are ready to pick too.
You’ll find Honeycrisp & the PYO varieties as well as honey from our bees. Most days there will be Sunflowers at the stand. There will be a limited supply of flowers daily. Hours are 10am til 5pm every day.
Peaches from south of here, Pennsylvania and So. Carolina, are tangy sweet and juicy. Ripening may take a few days at room temperature. New England peaches should be available again next year. (Deep freeze in February wiped out the buds this year).
The bees have been bringing in nectar since April. The Loosestrife in the muddy Bowers Brook marsh, and our Sunflowers & pumpkin flowers, are providing forage now. We’ve spend the last 2 days extracting, for the 2nd time this summer, and there is more to come!
Gingergold and Gravenstein apples, the best of the early apples are here.
There has been a much needed soaking rain this morning, August 2nd. The berries are freshly washed on the bushes. We are open for picking with a beautiful crop of blueberries. Raspberries are winding down.
We are open, 9am-4pm, Tues-Sat.
Spring honey from our hives is at the stand.
AND JUST FOR FUN..
The Macouns are truly extraordinary right now, Oct. 23, 2015. We are still open for PYO and there are many other varieties to try as well.
Jonagold, Empire and Macoun join the line up of ripe and ready apples. The much cooler temps have helped. Check the WHAT’S READY AND WHERE TO FIND IT page for updated list.
Peaches are gone and will return next year in mid July.
We will start our Fall schedule Saturday, September 3! Hours are 10am – 5pm Daily.
Pick Your Own apples will begin Labor day Weekend.
We’ll be checking for ripeness and will up date here and on Facebook.
