We checked this evening and empires are ripe!! See yesterday’s post for other varieties that are ripe.
I will pick up 30 dozen donuts in the morning. Brought back 100 gallons of cider this afternoon.
Come get some great fruit and enjoy the beautiful weather!!
Folks keep coming back from the orchard saying “I have never seen so much fruit”. This is the biggest crop we have seen. MacIntosh, Honeycrisp, Gala, Cortland, Macoun, and Ginger Gold continue to be plentiful.
A lot of Honeycrisp have been picked, but there are many more down the hill – follow the arrows on the red signs and look for the signs tied with yellow ribbons. There will be fewer left to pick after the weekend.
Cider and donuts on Saturday & Sunday – come early before the donuts run out.
