|Things have been a bit busy here at the orchard. With the labor shortage, it’s been quite a challenge. But we are doing our best. Like the fruit on our trees, we are hanging in there.|
Peaches are the name of the game this time of year. We are still at the beginning of the season and not quite into our full “cling free” or “freestone” varieties yet, but they will be coming soon.
For those of you not up on the peach jargon, which was me about three years ago, a “cling free” or “freestone” peach just means that the meat of the fruit falls/pulls easily off the pit when you open the peach. People who can peaches or make peach jam are more inclined to use this type of fruit because they are pitting many at a time and it makes for a faster process. There is no difference in the quality of the peach. Check out this link for more information…

PLEASE NOTE: This weekend is going to be our last weekend for U-pick berries. After Sunday, August 1st, our berries are done for the season.
Next up will be U-pick apples, but not until mid-September! Stay tuned!

Recently, it was Christmas in July at Bent Ladder! Cooper and Sky both got to meet St. Nick. Sky was not too impressed, but Cooper seemed pretty excited!
