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.

Planting Time & Apple Blossom Days Update

Jared, the girls and I took a quick little road trip to Michigan (5 hours) on Thursday, stayed the night with a friend of mine and her family (thanks Natalie!) and were up early in the morning so we could go and pick up some new apple trees from Hilltop Fruit Trees, LLCP4230154 It’s apple blossom time in Michigan…P4230153   An employee helped Jared load the trees into the back of the truck.    P4230160 P4230161 Jared wrapped them up and strapped them down and we headed home.  P4230162 We made good time through Chicago and were home in the early afternoon.  Frank and Diane came over about 15 minutes after we arrived, enough time for us to unpack and get changed into some work clothes.  Frank took control of the skidster and dug some holes with a special attachment.  P4230163 Diane, Jared and I were in charge of planting.  A friend of ours showed up about 2/3 of the way through and was a great help getting the rest in.  P4230164 Cedi and Capri were helpful too!P4230165P4230171 Capri stomping the dirt in to get rid of any air pockets around the roots. P4230166   Onto Apple Blossom Days…we’re still going to be open on Saturday and Sunday May 8th and 9th from 9-4 for Apple Blossom Days as planned.  BUT as you can see from the pictures – the orchard is starting to blossom out about a week early – so, weather permitting we will also be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday May 1st and 2nd.  We’ll have the shop looking nice but I’m not sure if there will be any outdoor activities ready.  BUT you will still be able to walk around our orchard, enjoy the blossoms, take pictures, and enjoy some time out in the ‘country’ – oh and visit the goats and maybe the emusP4230169Any quilters that read this blog make sure you check out Challenge #2 of Project Quilting:
