We've just started to harvest the following varieties and we still need to wash and grade them. Whats grading? We wash the apples and sort through to find the very best. Apple seconds (apples with blemishes) are used to make apple cider. We should have them for sale by Saturday but if you want to double check give us a call or shoot us an email.
