We have no new varieties open for picking this weekend. We will be hosting a clean up the orchard event this weekend until we are picked out. We have plenty of apples available if your willing to hunt for them (look past some bad ones, bend over, reach high, walk up & down rows). We'll be selling peck bags for half off ($10).

We currently have Honeycrisp, Mutsu, Gala & Granny Smith apples for sale in the market.
