Fall is here!!

U-Pick Apple update:  Just a reminder, we opened the U-Pick apples today for the season.    What we  have for picking is:  Cortlands, Red and Golden Delicious, Fuji, a few Cameo, Jonathans and possibly a few Northern Spies.  Sorry, we have a very light crop of apples this year due to a spring frost compounded by a hailstorm which damaged them.  They will be $12 a bushel to pick, the same as last year. 

Red Delicious apples just picked in the orchard, 9-16-10

U-PIck Grape update:  We have lots of white Niagara grapes yet to pick and should have them for several more weeks.  They are beautiful this year and most folks are describing them as “fun” to pick because they are so plentiful.    However, due to the frost and freeze with the purple Concord grapes, we are still on a day by day basis as to whether we will have them.  Due to the high number of people coming out to pick, we can’t assess how many are left until the end of each day.   So far this week we have had about 75,000 pounds of grapes picked here by our customers, that is a lot of grapes!!    So please call us on 269-244-5690 before you come out to make sure they are still available. 

Young customers enjoying their grape picking experience!

Bosc Pears:  This is a wonderful eating pear available now.  They are $16.00 a bushel plus we have smaller quantities for fresh eating as well Yellow Ribbon for the Year issue.

Winter Squash:  Is now ready, we have many varieties to choose from at 40 cents per pound.

Fall ornamentals:   We now have mums, pumpkins, indian corn and gourds for you to choose. 

Mums and Pumpkins, 9-16-10

Gourds are so interesting to look at!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s Cider time:  We are now on our 3rd pressing of cider for the year, each pressing gets better and better as the flavor of the apples changes.  It is $5.00 a gallon, $2.75 a half gallon, and this year we offer quart jugs for $1.50.  Our cider is not pasteurized (so of course it must be refrigerated)  but we feel that is what makes it so good and tasting like real apple juice 드라이버 소프트웨어 다운로드.

Homemade Baked Goods:  We are continuing to offer homemade baked goods on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.  This week I highly recommend the apple dumplings.  They are made from our Cortland apples, they are amazing 워킹데드 시즌9 1화 다운로드.

We love decorating the market for Fall, when you come out, please bring your camera and feel free to take pictures.  We now have 3 areas adjacent in the market set up for spots you can take family photo’s in, decorated with pumpkin scarecrows and our famous old truck katok pictures.

Hope to see you this weekend,

Update on U-Pick grapes

Krno Cruseide

We opened the U-Pick Concord purple grapes today and we were overwhelmed by the number of people who came out to pick.    We have never experienced such a large crowd in one day.  Due to how how many we had picked out today, there will not be many left to pick, especially since we had few Concord grapes this year to start with due to the spring frosts and hailstorm.  At the rate they are being picked, we don’t think they will last more than a few more days.  SO PLEASE CALL before you travel very far to make sure we have some left to pick.  269-244-5690. 

We do still have lots of White Niagara grapes to pick, they were not as impacted by the frost and hail Download aix file.

We apologize for those of you who wanted them this year and may not get any, this has just not been a very good year for grapes in Michigan.  Let’s hope for a better year next year Hyuk-oh WeyingYing Download.

Thanks for your understanding.

U-Pick Grape and Apple Update

 

 U-Pick Grapes

  • White Niagra grapes:  Open for picking now. 
  • Blue/Purple Concord grapes:  Will open for U-Pick on Monday, September 13th
  • If you want both color grapes, you should try to come the week of September 13th rtmp 파일 다운로드.

 

  • U-Pick Grape Pricing:  Will remain the same as last year which is 20 cents/lb.   If you pick over 100 pounds, it is 15 cent/pound.  A bushel of grapes weighs approximately 40 to 50 pounds depending on how you fill it Download the conalson mp3.

 

  •  As most of you know, once we open the U-Pick grapes, they will be  available up until Welch’s comes to harvest them.   Preliminary information from Welch’s says they will probably harvest our white niagara grapes starting on 9-11 (we will save a field for you to pick in the week of 9-13) and the purple concords around 9-25.  However, this can change, so we will keep you posted with the latest.  Welch’s is trying to manage a nation wide schedule of harvests and processing plants, so we have no control over this.   You can always check the website for the latest information or call us.  269-244-5690. 
  • For those of you who have picked grapes in previous years, you will notice there are fewer than in previous years due to early frost and some hail damage.  We have a total of 120 acres of grapes, so there should still be enough for everyone Seine's Row.

 

  • Picking Instructions for U-Pick Grapes
  1. Please bring containers to pick your grapes in such as buckets, baskets, tubs, etc Fujitsu driver download.
  2. Please check in with the market clerk when you arrive and make sure your containers are weighed before you pick.
  3. Please bring garden clippers/scissors/knife or a similar tool to cut the grapes, this makes it easier 노병가 다운로드.
  4. Dress appropriately for a vineyard setting where natural hazards exist: Bees/hornets/wasps/poison ivy or poison oak and places where the ground is not level, etc 화면보호기 다운로드. You might want to wear enclosed shoes/socks and pants due to the tall grass. (We cannot mow the grass this close to harvesting….)

U-Pick Apple update:  We will open the apple orchard for picking on September 16th for all apples except Cortland, which we will open up on September 13th. (Cortland only on the 13th).    Since we do not have any early apples due to frost, we have had to wait for the later apples to ripen.  What we will have for picking will be:  Cortlands, Red and Golden Delicious, Fuji, a few Cameo, Jonathans and possibly a few Northern Spies.  Sorry, we have a very light crop of apples this year due to a spring frost compounded by a hailstorm which damaged them.  They will be $12 a bushel to pick, the same as last year. 

We will update you on apples as soon as we know more, thanks for your patience 토마토팡 다운로드.

Apple update

Labor Day Weekend:  Wow, what a busy weekend we had, thanks for everyone who came to the market.    Some of you might have seen glimpses of a wedding couple on the farm on Sunday, congratulations to my neice Jessica Sonday who was married to Travis Steck.  For my Dad this was the first grandchild to marry, it was a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding, we wish them all the best gpedit msc 다운로드.
Apples:  We have a smaller apple crop than normal this year due to spring frosts/freezes and damage from a hailstorm which occurred in May.    While the State of Michigan is down about 25% for their apple crop, some of our varieties have taken a 60% hit.   Many of the apples have some hail damage on them, which left a mark or indent where the hail hit and the apple skin healed over.   This does not hurt the good flavor or the quality of the apple, but the apples do not look as nice as we are all accustomed to.  We will be grading the apples and removing those that have the worst hail damage to use for making cider.   But this smaller crop means that certain varieties and the U-Pick could go very quickly this year Gangsterrio Vegas download. The three types of apples we have the most of are:  Fuji, Golden Delicious and Red Delicious. 
Apple Pricing:  As each apple type becomes available, we will update you.  But in general, the 2010 apples prices will be the same as last year or in some cases a bit lower, due to the hail damage. 
 
Apples available on the market now:
  • Cortland:  $18 a bushel, $9.50 a half bushel, $6.00 peck
  • Honey Crisp:  $1.00/lb.  We try to have these on the market at all times, but they are not ripening consistently, so there may be days we don’t have them, you may want to call in advance to make sure we do before you drive over  269-244-5690.  We also try to offer bags of “not so perfect” Honeycrisp for half price.  Check these out when you are at the market Download Avengers 2.
