Honey has been extracted and bottled and peaches are being picked for the stand this week.
We will be picking peaches for the stand this week. They are cling-stone, an inconvenience of our earliest varieties, but they are oh so sweet and juicy! Pick your own peaches will start later in August.
Meanwhile the blueberries and raspberries continue to be plentiful and easy to pick.
The heat wave has come to an end, the berries have just begun and we are so happy to be open for the 2018 season. You will find us ready to help with picking buckets, flats and containers as well as directions to the best picking areas. Blueberries and raspberries are ready to go.
Blueberries & raspberries will be ready to go when we open at 9am on the 4th of July.
Get your red and blue, add some white (perhaps vanilla ice cream?) when you get home and you have a perfect desert for the day. We close at 4pm.
There are so many to choose from! Balsam Fir, White Fir and a few blue Spruce stretch from one end of the block to the other. You walk down the lane to the trees, find a tree, get help if you need it, or cut and carry your own to a stand. We give you & your tree a ride back up to the parking area, then net and tie your tree on your car. For details look at Cut Your Own & check in at a stand when you get here.
If you are hoping to stock up on Honeycrisp (good keepers!), Macoun, Cortland, McIntosh, Fuji, Jonagold or Mutsu come see us this week. We will be closed on Thanksgiving but open Friday, Saturday and Sunday for apple sales and cider.
Check the 4 MINUTE TOUR for a taste of the trees. There is a huge selection of beautiful trees from 5′ up to more than 12′ tall, $65. for any tree (covers tax, baling etc.).
WE’LL BE OPEN STARTING FRIDAY 11/24/2017, FOR CHRISTMAS TREES AND APPLES!
HOURS: 10am – 4 pm
Last entry to Christmas trees at 3:30pm
Check in at a stand when you get here (see map)
- Apple, Cider & Doughnut Stand in the parking lot area
- One of the 2 Christmas tree stands
Here is what to expect:
You’ll have a short walk to the Christmas tree area. Once there, find your favorite tree and cut it (we can help cut and carry if you need). Take your tree to a Christmas tree stand (*) pay, tie your tag on a branch at the base of the tree. Get in line with your tree for your ride back to the parking lot. Your tree will be baled with net & tied on your car. The price of the tree covers everything including tax!
Your tree tag is your receipt. Should you want to contact us about your tree you’ll need it.
Please make way for the tractors!
Due to the necessity of wagon interval scheduling it is very unlikely that we can stop to pick up trees in the field – trees will only be loaded on the wagons at the stands.
Our first few hours can be very busy. You might find yourself waiting for help cutting a tree, wagon transportation, baling and tying the tree on your car… in short, if you are in a hurry, later in the day or in the weekend is a little less busy.
Apple sales continue!
We are open 7 days a week from 10am until 5pm.
We have a beautiful crop of apples ready to be picked, or at the stand.
There are so many large and perfect apples on the trees. Picking is quick and easy. The orchard is a lovely place to wander and relax. Come and enjoy!
Here is the list of “ready to pick” apples for Oct. 14:
Fuji, Macoun, Jonagold, Cortland, McIntosh, Gala, Red & Golden Delicious, Empire, Mutsu (and Granny Smith are nearly ripe!
On the stand you’ll find Honeycrisp, Macoun, Cortland, Fuji, McIntosh, Gala and Empire.
Peach picking doesn’t get any better than this! So many beautiful, ripe and big peaches on the trees for you to pick. The smell of peaches in the orchard is unforgettable.
The Macouns are truly extraordinary!
