Wrapping up the 2015 apple season

Hi everyone!  It’s with a bittersweet mood that I type up the end of the season blog for this year.  It has been an incredible 2015 apple season – seriously, incredible.

I have to say a huge ‘THANK YOU” to all of you for that!  We had countless new visitors to the orchard this year that came because they heard from a friend, a neighbor, a coworker, what an amazing place this was.  Without you and your support – my families dream would not be possible.

All of the photo’s on this post were shared to the Lapacek’s Orchard facebook page

There were TONS Of great memories created at the orchard this season too!  I’ve heard from multiple sources that the boat was a hit.

The staff from Eldorada Grill had fun hanging out at the orchard for a work outing.  (Notice Capri and Pip tagged along)

Many photographers utilized our beautiful orchard as a backdrop to their photo sessions.  I don’t think these kiddo’s minded Spiff the cat photo bombing their shoot there.  Great shot by Maggie Augusta Photographyfawn benzing at the orchard

The orchard is a perfect place to let your kiddo’s run and just be kids!  Fawn B’s kids where definitely getting some energy out this day!

I’m pretty sure that it was a tie between boat pictures and pictures by our new fence.  Check out Samantha R’s cuties!

And of course … the kittens were a huge hit!  I know that Hillary L’s daughters adore the cats and eat their apples faster so they can come and visit the kittens more often.

We have six friendly goats at the orchard that got a lot of attention and ate a lot of apple cores.  I’m loving this photo from Kristin G.

Lodi High School at the orchard

Students from Lodi High School had a fun time visiting the orchard in the late fall.

One of my favorite memories from the orchard was when adorable triplet boys visited … I would guess they were about 1.5ish.  Their mom had a bag of apples in the wagon with them and as she check out one of the little guys leaned over and took a bite of an apple right through the bag!  He just couldn’t wait!

We have so many customers that make doing what we do worth it.  It’s hard to express in words what I mean but I just want you to all know that we (I) appreciate you and your support!

So – what do we do when apple season is over?  Well – we get to see these three lovely ladies again (photo by Karmen Lindner Photography).  I know the girls’ are all looking to have more time with us.  We’re so excited that Mercedi and Capri qualified for the Level 3 state gymnastics meet.  On December 5th from 9-11:30 they’ll be competing at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison!  We couldn’t be more proud.

Diane and I (Kim) will be back into our quilting world.  If you want to keep up-to-date on my creations be sure to follow along on my blog, Persimon Dreams and/or instagram account

Jared is back working full time at his ‘real’ job at Burse Surveying and Engineering.  He is a Registered Land Surveyor and works in Madison during the day and does orchard things at night and on the weekends.

Frank will be around working on things that need to be done at the orchard – pruning the trees, fixing things that are broken, and just overall care of the orchard. 

With that – thank you so much for all your enthusiasm and support of our little orchard and our little dream.  We appreciate you.  Happy Thanksgiving.
