Next we will move into the crisp Cortlands and old-fashioned tart Baldwins – with a NEW ORCHARD of Empires, Macouns and Jonagolds. We will end in October with the sweet Red and Golden Delicious, tangy Jonagolds, Fujis, and the wonderful Idareds. All of these will be available by the peck (1/4 bushel) or 1/2 bushel as they ripen on Fridays and weekends in our Pick-Your-Own Orchards or any day in smaller quantities in our Farm Market. Our market is also stocked with some of our 30 other varieties of apples as they ripen during the season, along with Country Bacon, Pure Honey, Maple Syrup and a fine selection of fruit preserves, butters and spreads. Not to be forgotten – Pure Natural Apple Cider – freshly pressed in our own mill, will be available just as soon as enough apples ripen to give our cider just the right taste, flavor and fragrance combination. Don’t forget to stop at our BAKE SHOP for an apple-cider donut to taste or to pick up a FRESH-baked peach or apple pie for dinner.
