Pink Lady apples are ready now!

Pink Lady are our last apple to come ripe and it is well worth the wait!
Pink Lady is a great all-around apple.  Medium sweet flavor with a tang.  It is also great for baking, applesauce and my favorite for drying.  It is our longest storage apple too.

Other Apple Update:

Hint:  Walk down to the orange cones we have in most rows, and you will find the most easy picking starting at the cones!

Granny Smith, Gold Rush:  Lots and lots.  These came ripe just recently.

Jonagold:  Especially look on the west side of the row closest to the railroad tracks, plus toward the far south end.

Golden Delicious:  Many left in the main 2 row plus you will find more in the older part of the orchard.

Braeburn:  Lots left in the main single row.  We also have a whole section of Braeburn in the far southeast corner (by the road) that has barely been picked on yet.

Melrose, Ruby Jon, Rome:  Still quite a bit out there but you need to walk to the last 1/3 to 1/4 of the row.  One you hit the orange cone, the trees are full of them.

Red Delicious:  Some left on the single row, plus there are lots of trees spread throughout the older part of the orchard.  (If you don't know what the "older section" is, just ask us when you get here and we can show you!

Fuji:  Still some out there but getting low.  The last few trees all the way to the north are full of Fuji, and we have 3 trees in the older part of the orchard that we can guide you to.


One last reminder!  Apple Festival is this Saturday, Oct 18 from 10am-2pm!

Come find this little frog tomorrow for part of our scavenger hunt for adults and kids alike!

There is no entry fee or cost except if you'd like to purchase apples.

Come check out the apple tasting table, applesauce taste test, John Deere gator rides, Apple Tours around the orchard, Crafts for the kids, Scavenger hunt, Farm Equipment to check out, and of course, apple picking!  We'd love to have you.


 See you soon!
