The heat is continuing to hurry everything along. We’re ahead of schedule picking most of the fruit by almost a week still! Hope you’ve been able to stay cooler than we have. Apples – I picked the Pristine a couple days ago. We’ve got a really nice crop this year, and they have pretty good […]
Peaches – As is everything this year, peaches are early! We’re picking several varieties right now…Brightstar, Glenglo, and Flamin’ Fury PF-7 and PF-8. There are a lot ripe, so I’m not anticipating too many supply problems in the market; hopefully we’ll be able to keep stocked. We don’t offer peaches for pick your own. Blueberries […]

Happy Spring, everyone!! Yes, it seems to finally be here. I figured a good place to start with our brand new website would be a quick update with some pictures of how things are looking around the orchards right now. The crazy weather the last couple of weeks shut down all the plants/trees’ progress. We […]
