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.
Apples looking good
raspberries are starting to turn red
AND JUST FOR FUN..

First harvest of the season- rocks!
WE’LL BE OPEN STARTING FRIDAY 11/25/2016, 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!
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.
Sad to say the blueberries are done for the year! We hope you had a chance to pick as much as you wanted. Southern peaches are at the stand along our honey. Gravensteins and Gingergold are packed up for you and ready for eating, or a really good pie!
We have opened the apple stand. You’ll find peaches, early apples & honey ready to go. Pick you own peaches is a shorter walk. Pick your own blueberries is winding down. It takes some time and determination but you can find a quart or more. PYO apples will start in Sept. Check back for an opening date!
The trees need to be pruned
Bee hives are still buzzing
The Cletrac makes the trails
