Crop Report: Crisp Apples & Autumn Days

Thanks for checking in this week! We are LOVING this weather! It makes for perfect pumpkin & apple picking days. More information about this week's u-pick availability and a full list of apple varieties and produce available in our Farm Market (as supplies last) to follow.

*Please note that varieties available for u-pick and varieties available in our Farm Market pre-picked differ*

It's our favorite time of year! No matter how many pumpkins we see we are always in awe! Each autumn brings something new and exciting. This year we are obsessing over the heirloom pumpkins, they are just so spectacular!

We are into week two of apple cider and the flavor just keeps getting better! Our cider is handcrafted and pressed small batch. Our cider experts create a perfect mix of apples for our signature blend. Due to its popularity, our cider tends to sell out by Sunday afternoons during the fall. Be sure to give us a call to check before making a special trip.

We have loved hearing about the delicious desserts you all have been making with your freshly picked apples. Apple picking and pie baking has been a long family tradition of ours. We are so happy to share this tradition with you!

Here's some inspiration from Halfbaked Harvest and Love & Lemons for your weekend. No Autumn weekend is complete without something sweet! Melrose is an excellent all-purpose apple and would make a great addition to these treats. Links to recipes below.

We'll be cozying up at a bonfire in our favorite flannel with an apple blondie and a cup of hot apple cider on Saturday night. Hello, fall! If you haven't tried hot apple cider with a touch of rum, you're missing out!
