Hedmark’s Maple Ridge Maple Syrup

Each apple season for quite a few years now I’ve been proud to stock our shop with Wisconsin made maple syrup from Hedmark’s Maple Ridge located in Fence, WI.  This year is no different.

IMG_1933-001With my syrup order the Hedmark’s always send the Judging Results from the current years contest.  In 2016 4 entries out of 45 received a 100% score – and Hedmark’s Maple Ridge was one of them!IMG_1935

Entries are judged in the categories of density, clarity, flavor, color, and color.  It’s great to see that the maple syrup we offer at our store scored a 100% in all categories!  If maple syrup is your thing be sure to give Hedmark’s Maple Ridge a try!

Back To School–Teacher Gift

My girls are heading back to school on September 1st!  I can’t believe it!  Some of you have seen that they’ve been helping us out in the shop this year and you can expect to see that on most weekends throughout the fall (except when they have gymnastic meets).  Of course – I now understand why back in the day farmer’s didn’t send there kids to school until winter!  Now that they’re getting bigger they’re actually quite helpful around the orchard!

Anyway – they’re heading back to school and I completely appreciate what teachers go through to teach kids all day long!  I know I could never do that.  I like to start the year with a little gift of appreciation and did you know that the orchard is great place to find just that!?  We have a fun little gift shop along with the apples, caramel apples, canned goods, and apple cider donuts (weekends only for the donuts).

 

owl jar teacher giftOne of my favorite finds for the store this year are these fabulous owl jars in the colors of the rainbow!  We’re loading these jars with treats for the teacher to put a smile on there face the first day! 

So … when you’re trying to think of something for the teacher … remember you might just be able to find it right down the road at your local orchard!

Surfing Goats

Every year we try to do new things in our orchard.  The big thing we did this year won’t be seen when you visit the orchard as we planted just under 3,000 trees at a location about 2 miles away from our orchard.  This portion of the orchard will not be open to the public.  We did this because our orchard has been planted on for about 75  years and we’re starting to see signs that the soil is just not up to par like it had been. 

 

Goats at Lapacek's OrchardBut we did have to do something new that you’d be able to notice when you visit the orchard.  About a month ago our friends and neighbors were cleaning out there place as the prepared to move and we spotted a surf board in the “junk” pile.  Jared was on it instantly … and now …

 

Goats at Lapacek's OrchardNow the goats have a surf board in there pen so if they’re in the mood (and if you throw some grass on to it …) you may catch the goats surfing the next time you’re at the orchard.

 

Goats at Lapacek's OrchardYou can see they weren’t quite so cooperative for my photo shoot.

Apple Blossom Photo Shoots

I have many requests from photographer’s to use our orchard for sessions and you are all more than welcome to use our orchard!

10272489_10152153803392104_8836234623100768682_ophoto by Karmen Lindner Photography


I request two three things.


1. I need notice of when you plan on coming and
2. please tag and/or mention on your facebook page/website/blog when you post the pictures that you were at Lapacek's Orchard for the shoot.
3.  Absolutely no climbing on the trees, taking blossom off the trees, or messing with the trees of any sort.  Unfortunately do to a few instances I had to add this rule into the deal and I hope everyone can respect is as I do enjoy sharing the blossoms with the public.

I will post pictures of the apple blossom progress regularly on the facebook page over the next two or three weeks to help give you an idea of when they get close.

Wrapping up the 2015 apple season

Hi everyone!  It’s with a bittersweet mood that I type up the end of the season blog for this year.  It has been an incredible 2015 apple season – seriously, incredible.

I have to say a huge ‘THANK YOU” to all of you for that!  We had countless new visitors to the orchard this year that came because they heard from a friend, a neighbor, a coworker, what an amazing place this was.  Without you and your support – my families dream would not be possible.

All of the photo’s on this post were shared to the Lapacek’s Orchard facebook page

There were TONS Of great memories created at the orchard this season too!  I’ve heard from multiple sources that the boat was a hit.

The staff from Eldorada Grill had fun hanging out at the orchard for a work outing.  (Notice Capri and Pip tagged along)

Everyone liked to share delicious pie pictures made using our baker’s mix – above is Kaitlin Quick’s mini apple pies.elizabeth palmers pie

Elizabeth P’s apple pie is making my mouth water!

Many photographers utilized our beautiful orchard as a backdrop to their photo sessions.  I don’t think these kiddo’s minded Spiff the cat photo bombing their shoot there.  Great shot by Maggie Augusta Photographyfawn benzing at the orchard

The orchard is a perfect place to let your kiddo’s run and just be kids!  Fawn B’s kids where definitely getting some energy out this day!

samantha reese at the orchard

I’m pretty sure that it was a tie between boat pictures and pictures by our new fence.  Check out Samantha R’s cuties!

And of course … the kittens were a huge hit!  I know that Hillary L’s daughters adore the cats and eat their apples faster so they can come and visit the kittens more often.

We have six friendly goats at the orchard that got a lot of attention and ate a lot of apple cores.  I’m loving this photo from Kristin G.

Lodi High School at the orchard

Students from Lodi High School had a fun time visiting the orchard in the late fall.

One of my favorite memories from the orchard was when adorable triplet boys visited … I would guess they were about 1.5ish.  Their mom had a bag of apples in the wagon with them and as she check out one of the little guys leaned over and took a bite of an apple right through the bag!  He just couldn’t wait!

We have so many customers that make doing what we do worth it.  It’s hard to express in words what I mean but I just want you to all know that we (I) appreciate you and your support!

orchard with karmen

So – what do we do when apple season is over?  Well – we get to see these three lovely ladies again (photo by Karmen Lindner Photography).  I know the girls’ are all looking to have more time with us.  We’re so excited that Mercedi and Capri qualified for the Level 3 state gymnastics meet.  On December 5th from 9-11:30 they’ll be competing at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison!  We couldn’t be more proud.

Diane and I (Kim) will be back into our quilting world.  If you want to keep up-to-date on my creations be sure to follow along on my blog, Persimon Dreams and/or instagram account

Jared is back working full time at his ‘real’ job at Burse Surveying and Engineering.  He is a Registered Land Surveyor and works in Madison during the day and does orchard things at night and on the weekends.

Frank will be around working on things that need to be done at the orchard – pruning the trees, fixing things that are broken, and just overall care of the orchard. 

With that – thank you so much for all your enthusiasm and support of our little orchard and our little dream.  We appreciate you.  Happy Thanksgiving.
