Fall Season – September and October

Apples

We grow 16 varieties of apples that ripen from the middle of August until early October. The crop is excellent this year and is ripe earlier than usual. You can pick your own apples or buy them already picked. Ruby Jon, Jonathan, Empire (a McIntosh variety), and Jonagold are ripe now. Gold and Red Delicious will be ripe the first week of September. Gala and Honeycrisp apples are available in the market but not for pick your own. We will be making cider as soon as we have a mix of varieties available.

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.
