We thank all who came to our fruit farm during the 2014 season.  We hope that you had an enjoyable experience.  Again, we will reopen when the late fall apples are available.

 

This year was the seventeenth season that the farm has been operated by us.  As indicated above, there are changes in the way that we now operate. The reasons for these changes are to reduce our collective workload, minimize problems with tree damage and reduce fruit loss from the you-pick and honor system operations.  The main change is customers will no longer be able to pick large fruit such as peaches, apples, pears, etc.  Thus with few exceptions, we will pick the large fruit, and have it available at the farm office for sale.  The schedule for having picked fruit at the farm office is to be decided.  Look for updates on this web site.

 

Selective spraying to control weeds, plant disease and pests will continue through the fall when the farm is closed.  We acknowledge help from Foster family members and neighbors -- especially Don who jumped in to help with cutting grass and clearing out the blueberries. Don and Laura have also assisted with spring pruning and fruit harvesting.
