Newsletter: Babies Everywhere!

Hello everyone!

There are babies everywhere on our orchard!  Abbie had fun picking some on a long Kubota ride around our property.  She found a baby peach and a baby apple and was excited to take them home!  

I wanted to make sure I mentioned that starting
TUESDAY, JUNE 1st, we are returning to our SUMMER HOURS

We will open at 9am and close at 5pm.  

We are getting a lot of calls about strawberries.  We get it!  We are anxious too for those amazing, sweet, juicy berries.  We are hoping to open the u-pick (or PYO (pick-your-own), as one of my customers called it!) in early June.

Keep checking the website for updates…


As always, we have curbside and local delivery available to you guys:  


 Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  If you still need a pie for your picnic, call and reserve one soon! We also have delicious watermelon and sweet corn. 

Take Care,
Amanda, Chris & Abbie


The European pear crop is looking better than expected. Definitely not a full crop, but a pretty decent amount. The Asian pears were hammered pretty badly by the cold, and it doesn’t look like we have many of those this year.


The garlic’s looking great. Hard to believe it’s almost summer!!  We plant two varieties at our orchard: Music and German White. 

German White is a very large hard-neck, porcelain type, botanically classified as Allium sativum.  
Music is a hard-neck variety, identified by a stiff, woody stem running through the center of the bulb. Each bulb is tightly wrapped in layers of porcelain white, thin, papery skin and contains an average of 4 to 7 extra large cloves per bulb. They both are usually harvested in July.  

Rule of Plum

Baby plums are coming along as well.  These are Castleton plums. 

Castleton is a modern dual-purpose early-season plum. It was developed for the New York commercial plum-growing market. 

Castleton can be eaten fresh when fully ripe or used in the kitchen if picked slightly earlier. It is a freestone plum – the stone falls away from the flesh easily.


No!  These are baby blueberries. 
Our crop looks like it made it through the cold just fine and should be loaded with nice ripe fruit later in June and July.
We grow seven varieties of blueberries.  Each are ready at different times to harvest which helps extend the season! 

Cooper’s Corner

“A dog is one of the few things in life, that is exactly what it seems.”

-Mark J. Asher

Does it get any sweeter than this!?  Buddies for life.  Cooper is growing up to be such a wonderful companion.  We are training him to be off lead at the orchard and he LOVES exploring our acres with more freedom.
