What a beautiful day it was, which brought out so many customers to enjoy the farm. But wow, were we busy. Apples, baked goods, and cider, just flew off the shelves! So, just a few changes:
U-Pick apples: We had so many customers out to pick apples today that we are now out of McIntosh and Mollie’s Delicious to pick. We still have some Gala and JonaMac, but that is all until the rest of the fall apples get ready. We anticipate opening more varieties to pick around 9-23. But please check back to make sure, since the weather will be the deciding factor.
Cider: We sold so much cider today that we will have to make more tomorrow (9-18) . So, we will probably have a gap on Sunday where we will be out. Please call before you come out for cider to make sure it is available: 269-244-5690.
U-Pick Tomatoes: We have reopened the tomato field for picking, at $12/bushel. We are not able to provide any more picked tomatoes by the bushel, but you can pick them yourself. Call ahead to check on availability, as it is dependent on how many people have picked that day and the weather cooperating to ripen them. 269-244-5690.
Bosc Pears are ready: If you don’t know this pear, you should. Bosc pears are an elegant variety, with distinctive characteristics that set them apart from other pears. Those who are familiar with Bosc appreciate their crunchy yet tender flesh and their sweet-spiced flavor. Plus, they keep wonderfully. They are available by the bushel and in smaller eating quantities.
Thanks for choosing local products. Thanks to all of you who came out today and enjoyed the farm with us. We loved seeing you and hope you had a great visit. If you did, please let us know, and if there is something we can do to make it better, please let us know that too!
