This weekend we have the Freedom variety still on the trees, as well as cider and apples for sale in the cider mill. Although the rain has passed, it is very breezy (OK, windy) and cool up here, so if you’re coming to visit, bring an extra layer or two.
We will be picking the rest of the apples this week and putting them away for cider for a few local events. These are the Sanderson Academy PTO’s Local Goods catalog, which raises money for the school by selling goods and services produced in Ashfield and Plainfield; and Franklin County Cider Days the first weekend in November, when we will be open for orchard walks, cider and baked goodies, and we will host a talk by Michael Phillips, author of The Apple Grower. Check our link to the Cider Days website for more details on this event if you’re interested.
