The past weekend was our busiest in the 13 years that the orchard has been back open. MacIntosh, Cortland, Empire, Gala, Macoun and Fuji are still plentiful.
Honeycrisp is in shorter supply, but there is still good fruit downhill just above and below the Cortlands.
For all varieties, you need to go down the row past the first half dozen trees to find the easiest picking. For MacIntosh on the old trees, go uphill to the corner and there is lots of low fruit.
Come during the week if you can to miss the crowds. On the weekend, come in the morning.
There is a very good crop of Empires which we will open up for picking tomorrow (Saturday). There continues to be excellent picking for Honeycrisp, Cortland, Macoun, Fuji, MacIntosh, and Gala.
If you have not yet come for Honeycrisp, now is the time to come – after this weekend there will be fewer for easy picking.
We bring up donuts from Mrs. Murphy’s on Saturday and Sunday. Come early in the day before the crowd has built up and the donuts run out.
