Apples ...   

Apples are our largest and longest lasting crop. We begin to harvest in the middle of August and have apples available until sold out.

Our main harvest is in September and October with McIntosh, Cortland, Spartan, Honeycrisp, Jonathon, Red & Golden Delicious and Ida Red's. We grow over forty varieties of fruit!  Our “Apple Barn” is open daily with a fine selection of fresh hand picked apples.  Visit our recipe page for great way to use your apples.
