Fall Season – September and October

Apples

We grow 16 varieties of apples that ripen from the end of August until early October. Unfortunately this year due to a late frost in April our crop is reduced to about 20 percent. We will be open for limited picking for only two weekends. Although our store will be open during the week, there will be no pick your own apples on weekdays.

Jonathan and Ruby Jon can be picked of the first weekend of September, the 3rd and 4th, and Red Delicious, Golden Delicious and Jonagold can be picked on September 10 and 11. Some picked apples will be available by the pound as long as they last. We will not be making cider this year due to the short crop.

Pumpkin Fantasyland and Pick Your Own Pumpkins

The last weekend in September our farmstead turns into a “PUMPKIN FANTASYLAND”. Walk into out farmstead and be surrounded by pumpkin characters and Halloween fun. We decorate with full size pumpkin and gourd figures representing farm folks, storybook characters and some of your favorite movie characters. There are aliens and a crashed spaceship. A graveyard has some very humorous inscriptions, most of them from real cemeteries. Mixed in with the figures are hundreds of pumpkins from minis to some big ones. You can also go to two fields and pick your own pumpkins. We have an assortment of winter squash and decorative gourds.

From Our Farm Kitchen

Our market is stocked with the apple butter we make and about 20 kinds of preserves. Honey from the farm will be available. In addition we sell a large selection of preserves, salsa, pickles, relishes, candy and other items from various suppliers.
