Enough with the rain, we have had over 3 inches here in the last few days….definitely taking its toll on all of us, our apple orchard and vineyards. But, the weather people say it is supposed to clear up by this weekend. So our warning to you if you are planning to come over and pick apples or grapes is: It is muddy!! Very muddy….we have standing water in many of the lanes going in and out of the orchards and are doing our best to find new ways to route everyone in and out. So…..patience and boots are a requirement for this weekend!!
But if you are able to come pick this weekend, all of our apples and grapes are ready now. You can pick both the Niagara and Concord grapes as well as all varieties of apples except Honeycrisp, (we don’t have U-Pick Honeycrisp) McIntosh and Gala (which are already gone.)
We have lots of picked apples on the market, all varieties are now in. We have some great specials going on some of our varieties, such as Gala and Red Delicious. We have also picked our pumpkins and have mums, gourds, Indian corn and many other fall ornamentals.
On Saturday, the brandy house will be open from 1 – 4. Our brandy maker Bruce has been quite busy lately making apple, pear and peach brandy…..you can smell the wonderful aroma when you walk in!
Check out our scarecrows…..and have your picture taken with them! And if anyone feels like this scarecrow should not be wearing an MSU sweatshirt and and MSU hat, then just make sure I am not looking if you try to switch the hat!!
So, dig out your boots, winter coat, hat and gloves and come on over this weekend! Fall is definitely here. (Even if it seems like winter!)
Beth and everyone at Corey Lake Orchards
