APPLE BARN

The Apple Barn is now open  everyday from Noon until 6 PM.

Right now we have a good supply of  McIntosh and Honeycrisp both of which are in their prime,  and  several other varieties. 

Also available now are the first  Libertys and the first Cortlands   We have  picked a very few Macouns, but think they are still gaining flavor on the tree.  The Macoun crop looks very light this year.

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.

NOTE: THE CIDER PRESSING OF SEPT 24 HAS SOLD OUT,

so we will not have cider until we press again on Wednesday Oct 1

 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 and at the Markets than we might wish.

We will have our fresh apple cider along with  McIntosh and Honeycrisp apples and we  will try to update this site with other varieties that will be available  then as we pick during the week and see what is ready.
