Peaches, and Apples, and Plums…Oh My!!

Castelton plums, just picked

It’s been another busy week outside at the Orchard.  This time of year it’s hard to keep up with picking since we grow so many things.  It seems like everything starts being ripe at the same time! Apples – We’ve picked a lot of apples this week!  New additions are Redfree, Sansa, St. Edmunds Pippin […]

Peaches, Veggies, and More Crop Updates

Redhaven peaches sitting on our wagon

The temperatures have finally gone down just a bit, so I can’t complain about the heat as much now….  We’ve been picking peaches and vegetables non-stop all week. Peaches – We’re rotating through three varieties right now: Flamin’ Fury PF-9, Starfire, and Redhaven.  When I say “rotating,” it’s because we re-pick each tree every two […]

Pristine Apples and a Crop Update

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 and Other Crop Updates

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 […]

Bloom Roundup

Pink Pearl Apple Trees in Bloom

Sorry it’s taken me so long to get these posted to the site.  They’ve been out there on social media for a little while.  Bloom is pretty much over at this point, and I’m starting to be able to see tiny (but growing quickly!) fruit.  So far everything is looking really good, but we do […]

Peaches, Pristine Apples, and Photos From Around the Farm

Sorry it’s been a few weeks since I’ve blogged.  We’ve been really busy around the farm picking, thinning, and summer pruning (not to mention still working hard at getting Bent Ladder open.  Opening date still TBD).  I also just got back from a few days in western New York at the International Fruit Tree Association’s […]

How Things Look – A Photo Update

The berry display in out market

Just a quick update this time.  I’ve been spending most of my time this last week picking cherries, so I don’t have much exciting to really talk about.  But I collected some pictures around the orchard, and I wanted to share them so you could see how everything is doing.  Things are looking good!

Asparagus, Bloom, and Tree Planting

Asparagus, coming up in the field

Asparagus The asparagus is coming up nicely now.  The warmer it is outside, the faster it grows, which means the more I can cut.  But I should be able to harvest some just about every morning for the next month and a half or so. Bloom Update As the trees are progressing out in the […]
