Parker Pears are picked and ready and are very tasty.

We pressed a small batch of fresh apple cider on Wednesday Sept 21 and will have it at the Markets and the barn while the supply lasts but will run out sooner than we would like this week because we do not yet have enough apples to make a bigger batch. We plan to press again next Wednesday Sept 27.
