CLOSED for the 2017 Season.


Drop off your plastic bags and canning jars at the orchard and we'll re-use them!

We're always looking for wagons for people to use when they go to our pumpkin patch - feel free to drop off your old or un-used wagons at the orchard!

We're also happy to take any picnic tables you're getting rid of - even if it's just the 'bones' of the table.

Opening Day

I just sent out the email announcing our opening for the season. (If you'd like to be on our list, email me at Right now we have Paulared, William's Pride and Viking apples. They've been really slow to ripen this year, but we should have a really nice crop...and with 37 different varieties there should be something for everyone.

I've also added some of my own homegrown vegetables. Tomatoes, cukes, peppers, summer squash, and cabbage for right now.

I'm also still working on the washout from that dyeing session. My clothesline is full of colorful garments and I have a load of hoodies in the washer. The goal is to get all that excess dye washed away. When the water runs clear, I give them one more washing to be sure they don't bleed when you take them home. Then I hang them up to dry and run them through once more. Time consuming, but worth it.

I need to go out to pick the blueberries and green beans today, too, and work some more on getting everything in place in the store. And I need to get the info to my sister Barb for the registration packets for her quilting retreat held in Wisconsin Dells in November. I teach there and packets need to go out soon.

So, I guess I'd better get at it. Hope to see you at the orchard.
