U-Picking at Rittman Orchards

Hello all!  Hello Fall!  This season brings all sorts of goodies along with cool weather: pumpkins, apple picking, cider, and my personal favorite, caramel apples.  We typically sell out of these delightful treats by the end of each day, but if I am lucky, I get to take one home.  🙂  Abbie won’t eat them […]

Cider, Honeycrisp and U-Pick

Well, hello again!  It’s Amanda. Fall has arrived! I know because for the first few days of cooler weather, I always forget my sweatshirt! I, myself, am excited about the cooler weather and the approach of autumn.    As we say goodbye to summer and the peaches, don’t be sad…we get to say hello to […]

Peaches, peaches, peaches

Hi everyone, It’s Amanda again!  So, what have the peaches been up to?  How are all the melons getting along with one another?  Are the plums and the nectarines here yet?  What are Abbie’s latest words? Ok, maybe not the last one.  But, all these questions and more will be covered in the next few […]

Peaches, Pristine Apples, and the Last Day of U-Pick

Hi everyone, I’m back this week. I’ve got a few really quick updates about things on the farm. First, our peaches are in. We’ll have our Flamin’ Fury PF-7’s in the market tomorrow, at least most of the day. Then I think Glenglo is up next. We have four varieties I’m picking my way through […]

U-Pick Open Tomorrow and a Shaker Square Update

Hi everyone, Wow, you guys like your strawberries! Sunday was even crazier than Friday. Luckily we had today to recover (and for the strawberry patch to recover, too). We’ve started some more pickers to try to keep up better with picked berries in the market. And I think I have a plan to handle u-pick […]

Strawberries!

Hi everyone, It’s finally time for strawberry season! Here’s all the details we have figured out so far. Some of this info you may have seen already, but I figured it was better to compile everything together. Already Picked Berries – We will have strawberries in the market daily for the next few weeks, unless […]

Opening Back Up!

Hi everyone, So the big news, as you may have guessed already from the subject line of this email…we’re opening up to the public again! Tuesday morning we will be resuming (somewhat) more normal service by inviting customers back into our market again. There will be a lot of changes, so please continue reading if […]

New Produce, A Crop Update and Policies Going Forward

Hi everyone, I wanted to update you on a few things. First of all, a big thank you to everyone who participated in our “additional produce that you’d like to see” survey from the last newsletter. We had almost 400 respondents, so it was really awesome to see all the results! The vast majority of […]

Spring Update: Bloom, Asparagus, Curbside and Delivery Updates

Hi everyone, Just checking in. Wow, this has been a crazy spring. Between the massive temperature changes and this whole virus thing, I miss normal. Though, I guess, maybe crazy weather is actually normal for Ohio these days. Things started out really warm, the trees started to get going, then…WHAM…majorly cold. Now that we’re warming […]
