This newsletter went out waaaaaay later than I wanted it to, but with the warm weather and June approaching, the pace is picking up here at the orchard!
Abbie and I stayed home for Mother’s Day. We had the best time making bright blue playdoh, coloring while listening to music, and eating lunch in front of the TV together. I love these moments with her and am grateful when we have this special time. Being a mother has been one of the most challenging, exhausting, rewarding and wonderful experience of my life. To all of you out there who are moms in all different capacities–biological or not–we send you love from the orchard. And to all of you who have lost your mom, we send you a little extra.
Happy (Very) Belated Mother’s Day.
I can’t believe we are a week away from June! We are gearing up here and getting ready for the hot weather and the increased traffic in our store.
The ice cream is in and Abbie is very excited! It’s not every toddler who has access to a 12 flavor freezer of ice cream! I think it’s harder for me to stay away from eating it all the time! 🙂 So far, my favorite flavor is Grandma’s Banana Cream Pie. It’s amazing.
We are hoping to open the U-Pick in early June, but still have no idea how the crop will develop at this time. Just keep checking the website if you are curious!
We hope to see you all out here soon! This is the best time at the orchard.
Amanda, Chris & Abbie
Well, we know some of the fruit survived the frost. Meet a baby peach! We have been fighting against the frost up until a few days ago. I hope we will be in the clear soon. It’s stressful! It’s hopeful to see little guys like this one out in the orchard! It’s funny how our trees almost feel like creatures we are caring for and trying to keep alive.
Some new products for our store! Personally, I am a cheese curd fiend, perhaps because my mother is from Wisconsin, but they are delicious! I do know they are extra delicious when paired with the Troyer’s Trail Bologna!
