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.

Apple Sunday

Yup, it’s Sunday again. Which means you get to read a lovely post from me!

So, you want to know what we’ve been doing at the orchard since it’s not apple season – probably resting and watching lots of TV, right? Nope, the guys have been trudging through the crazy amounts of snow in the orchard working on getting the trees pruned and ready for spring. It has not been a fun year for pruning. One Sunday I didn’t feel like driving all the way to the gym so instead I took a “walk” around the orchard…man was that a workout! In some spots, the snow went higher than my knees! And, to make it even worse, there would be places were you could walk on top of the snow but then all of a sudden you would sink. Now, imagine having to do that hauling a chain saw and pruning shears around! But, it has to get done.

Diane, Frank and Jared have also been slaving away in our commercial kitchen processing our apples into various yummy canned goods. In the upcoming weeks there is strong possibility that we will be offering these for sale online. I’ll keep you posted.

Jared has also continued to renovate the shed to convert it into our ‘store’. Every time I go in there I’m amazed at what he’s accomplished so far. I can’t wait for everyone to come and see it!

I have been busy enjoying time with my girls and stocking up on more craft items. I recently agreed to be a seller at a new boutique in Milwaukee, Project M, so I’ve been franticly making enough jewelry to send down there. I also have a few different shows coming up this Spring, the ‘Valentine’s Craftacular’ and ‘Cupcakes and Crafts’. Keep an eye on my ‘crafty’ blog to see what’s happening:

And now, as promised…something about apples!

We’re going with a fun apple fact today!

Apples are one of the few fruits that you can find fresh any time of the year, all over the country.
