The Apple Barn is now open everyday from Noon until 6 PM.
Our 2014 HONEY is now bottled and available in 1 lb and 3 lb jars at the Apple Barn.
We pressed cider Wednesday Oct 22 and will have a supply of gallons, half gallons and pints until we run out
Because some varieties have not produced this year, we do not have enough apples to make the amount of cider we normally do, so we will tend to run out earlier each week at the Apple Barn and at the Markets than we might wish.
Right now we have a good supply of McIntosh and Honeycrisp. This week we also have Jonagold, Ida Red, Winesap, Snow, Golden Russet, Red and Golden Delicious, Spartan and a number of other varieties
Unfortunately for Moonglow pear lovers, this year is a blank. The Moonglows did not set fruit so there is no crop this year, This could mean that next year will be big crop, but it is a long time to wait.
We are picking Ida Reds now, and it looks like a light crop of them this year, but what there is looks good.
Black Willow Twig unfortunately look pretty much blank this year.
We plan to be at the Burlington Market this week on Thursday Oct 23
We will have our fresh apple cider along with McIntosh and Honeycrisp, Liberty, Jonagold, Golden Delicious apples and a number of other varieties
