This Saturday, Nov 15th is the last day to pick apples!

This is your last chance for apples for the year.   It looks like it will be too cold for the apples after this.  Come pick your last stash for the winter on Saturday!  Open 8am to 6pm.

We also plan to pick a bunch of apples today that you guys can buy for $12 a bucket.  If there is any left after the weekend, you are welcome to buy some next week.  I'll post on Facebook on Monday if we have any pre-picked left.

We have Granny Smith and Gold Rush left to pick.  The Granny Smith left are especially gorgeous.
It will be cold but at least it will be sunny!!

Apple picking is still happening! Couple weeks more.

 Updated Nov 10:  All blueberry plants have sold.  Thank you!

We have some nice blueberry plants to sell!  We had to remove some from our fields for various reasons so we wanted to give you the opportunity to enjoy them!

We have about 25 of them left.  There are 4 year old Legacy and Aurora varieties which are a later season ripening blueberry.  Legacy is ready to harvest throughout August, and Aurora is Mid August to Early September. $20 per plant

We also have some smaller Duke blueberry plants that we had left from replanting some spots in our fields this fall if you are interested in those.  Dukes are ready to harvest the end of June through part of July.  $10 per plant for Dukes.

Now back to apples!  Yes we STILL have apples :)

Still available:

Pink Lady

Gold Rush

Granny Smith


This time of the season we will usually have pre-picked buckets available for you at the entrance of the orchard if you are just not feeling up to picking that day!  $12/per bucket.
You are also welcome to call ahead for us to pick you some apples if you want more than a couple buckets at a time!  We are happy to do that.  Just call and leave a message at 503-393-1077 or email us at


Other Farm Happenings:

The blueberry fields are starting to turn their fall colors.  Soon the leaves will fall to the ground and it will be pruning time.

We also need to spread sawdust in one of our fields that we didn't get to last year.  We spread it at the base of the blueberry plants.  Blueberry plants grow the healthiest when they have lots of the little fine shallow roots present, so it is worth the effort.  Plus it helps reduce evaporation in the summer when it is hot out and reduces the weed presence!

We will also be making our "winter list" that gives us direction once winter comes.  Helps us prioritize what needs fixed first, and reminds us of all the small repairs and improvements that need done here and there to make harvest time run smoothly.

Well we need to keep working away.  Thanks for checking in!
