Apple Season Update

Hi everyone!  We’re over a month into apple season and things are going so well!  Thank you to everyone who has been visiting and we hope to welcome even more folks over the next couple of months!

I’ve had a question asked a lot at the orchard recently that I thought I would quick cover here for you with an explanation of why we do things the way we do at Lapacek’s Orchard.

Are you a pick your own orchard?

No – we are not a pick your own orchard.  Why?  Our orchard is planted fairly haphazardly as far as varieties go.  There could be a block of 10 apples in one section and a random one right in the middle of that.  Also – the varieties all ripen at different times in different places all over the orchard.  We just don’t have a way to keep everyone picking apples that are ripe and delicious so we decided not to pay the extra money the insurance would cost to have a pick your own orchard. 

We still love to have you walk through the orchard and see how gorgeous it is but please come in the store to try the different apples we have already picked for you. 

 

We completely understand that going apple picking is a fun fall activity to do with your family.  Luckily, there is an awesome resource provided by the Wisconsin Apple Growers (WAGA) on their website – www.waga.org.  There is a map of all the Wisconsin orchards registered with WAGA and the green markers indicate a pick your own orchard.
