Apple season has begun

We had a busy, fun opening weekend. This was our first weekend in the new retail space in the barn, which worked very well. Lots of folks tasted hard cider, ate donuts, and picked all of our Liberty apples. We are lucky to have help from Jen and Steve’s parents, both while we are open and working in the orchard before and after. Our sons are old enough to help out too, so if you stop by Aidan or Elliot might be ringing up your order, or directing you to the trees we are picking.
This coming weekend we will be picking Cortlands and Freedoms. Most years we have Libertys for two weekends, but they had a light crop this year, so they are all gone. The weather for this weekend is forecasted to be fantastic. We recommend coming in the next two weekends for good U-pick availability - if we have good pickers, we won’t have a lot of apples available for pick-your-own by Columbus Day weekend. We will be open Columbus Day weekend regardless, and will have pre-picked apples (including Northern Spys), in addition to sweet and hard cider, donuts, jams, jellies, and vinegar.
