PLEASE HELP RECYCLE!

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!

Thanks!

Apple of the Week: Empire

Lapacek’s Orchard has been teaming up with a local CSABurr Oak Gardens to provide an ‘apple share’ to their clientele. This was the last week they picked up apples from us for their shareholders.  It was a huge decision for me – what would be the last ‘featured’ apple for this year’s CSA Share. I finally decided that it would just have to be Empire’s.

Before I tell you about the Empire, I just want to say that we hope the share holders enjoyed their apple share as much as I’ve enjoyed figuring out the ‘perfect’ apple to send for the week. I hope we continue to do this in future seasons as I barely was able to even touch on all the varieties we have to offer.

THE EMPIRE: Creamy white, juicy, moderately subacid flesh. High quality – fantastic ‘keeper’. Stores in refrigerators until March and will keep its crisp. Farmer Jared’s FAVORITE APPLE!

McIntosh x Red Delicious
