Crop Report: Welcome Fall!
September 2, 2021
Thanks for checking in this week! We are so happy to finally have some cooler weather! It's hard to believe that September is already here. Pick-your-own apples starts this weekend! Full list of produce, apple varieties and more information about u-pick apples on our farm to follow.
Lots of questions this week about apple cider. We're getting antsy too! Our first apple cider press of the season should be in about two weeks. We are still waiting for a few varieties like Jonagold, that are an excellent addition to cider, to be ready to harvest. Updates will be posted on the Crop Report.

Nothing seems more fall than seeing all the colorful winter squash come out of the field. Its the perfect time to start incorporating squash into recipes while all the summer produce lasts. Butternut Squash Quesadillas are one of our favorite recipes for a flavorful vegetarian dinner.
