We are tentatively planning on opening for the 2018 season on Wednesday, August 15th.


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.

My friend Kaitra (also Capri's godmother) was just here for a visit. She gave the girls' a super neat toy called 'FUN-WITH-FRUIT, Realistic fruit you can slice an dpeel!) from It has fruit that stays together with velcro and then you take the nice (a bit creepy how realistic the knife actually looks) to cut the fruit the part. You can also peel the banana and the orange! So far, the girls have just loved it!

On the back of the box the toys came it there are some fun fruit facts that I thought I would share with you!

-There are about 7,500 known varieties of apples grown in the world
-Bananas are one of the most popular fruits and are rich in Vitamin C, fiber and potassium
-Encourage fresh fruit over fruit juices, which can be high in added sugar and corn syrup

Also, there is a nice summary of the food groups on the back. It's nice to be reminded of these every once in awhile:

6-11 servings of grain for carbohydrates and vitamin B
3 servings of fruit for vitamins and minerals (apples fit in wonderfully here!)
3 servings of vegetables for fiber
2 servings of dairy for calcium
2 servings of meat, fish, poultry, eggs or nuts for protein
use fats, oils and sweets sparingly
