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!

Weekend Forecast at Lapacek’s Orchard –September 17th & 18th

Happy Saturday morning from Lapacek’s Orchard everyone!  Today’s forecast will be a little less extensive than last as I of course am running behind this morning.  There’s still a lot of great info on last weeks though so be sure to check it out HERE to find out more.  I do my best to keep the apple varieties that are in the shop listed on the upper left of the blog. The weekends here get a bit crazy so I’ll update whenever I get a moment but if it says low it may run out before I have a chance to take it off the list.

Apples to try this weekend …

Arlet – a modern apple for a modern taste.  This apple has a unique sweet/tart flavor.  It didn’t make it commercially because it’s prone to russetting on the skin – which really doesn’t effect the apple at all … just the look.

Rebella – We have a decent crop of these great apples this season so be sure to give them a try.  As I was researching farther into them I read that they are insensitive to frost … which helps explain why they don’t seem as affected as some of the other varieties.  Just a random fun fact I guess.

Crimson Crisp – these are sort of hidden in the shop … but are a fabulous apple!  They are tart and crisp and soon to be your new favorite apple!

Shizuka – not only does this apple have a fabulous name to say … but it has a wonderfully, appealing sweet-tart flavor.  Definitely add these to your list of apples to sample.



Our pumpkin patches are officially open!  Grab a wagon if you see one around the shop or bring your own!  Head out into the patches (you can find out where by grabbing a map), weigh your pumpkins at our pumpkin weigh station under the lean, mark the sheet you find at the station appropriately, put your pumpkins in your vehicle, and bring the sheet you marked into the shop to pay!  It sounds complicated but it’s really pretty simple … we’re just trying to avoid everyone lugging their pumpkins into the shop if we possibly can!

We have some pie pumpkins and winter squash to get you started!  We haven’t picked it all yet but we have picked what’s ripe so far.

Our instagram challenge is #orchardbeauty – see if you can take a picture at the orchard that captures the random beauty you find like Karmen Lindner did with the bench HERE and the door HERE.

See you at the orchard for some apples and fun!  Hope you enjoyed this weekends Orchard Forecast!

PS – I will be watching my phone a bit for texting as I work the register this morning … both of my girls are competing at there first gymnastics meet this season.  Luckily I have an amazing support system and there aunt is able to take them but she’ll be texting me there scores throughout the day!  Thanks for understanding!
