When you're growing food, every year is a different experience. Though we lost around 400 trees to the harsh winter, reducing our overall crop volume, the apples we do have are absolutely beautiful. Good size, deep red coloring and excellent flavor. We have held our breath as local storms have produced spotty, damaging hail, and we have "lucked out" and been missed. We feel terribly for those who have lost their crops. It's heartbreaking to spend your time, resources, heart and soul growing a crop, only to watch it ruined by a 5-minute hailstorm, but it happens to food producers all the time.
We don't mind working hard all year, but the reward is truly in putting out a beautiful and healthy product for our customers. Every year we enjoy seeing our old friends and long-term customers, but we also truly enjoy meeting new people and talking about apple production. If you're a regular, returning customer we thank you, and if you're a new customer, we look forward to meeting you!
Stop by and say hello.
