The Last Day of the 2019 Apple Season

Before I get down to business I wanted to share with you a few things I'm thankful for this year.

I'm thankful for all of you and all of your support. I'm thankful it was another successful Hand Crafted Hoedown for the Holidays. I'm thankful my girls are growing up on this orchard and are seeing what hard works mean. I'm thankful that I get to see you and your families grow up through the years and you keep Lapacek's Orchard as part of your tradition. I'm thankful that I can still introduce a person to a new apple they never knew they'd love. I'm thankful for more thank I can list so I'll end with - seriously, thank you for all your support each year. We would not be able to live our dreams if it weren't for our customers. Thank you.

And with that - today is the final day of the 2019 apple season. We are open today from noon to 6pm. You still have time to come in and stock up on apples, cider, and frozen apple cider donuts! We have LOTS of cider and LOTS of frozen donuts! We still have apples too - lots of Idared, Empire, Jonagold. You can still get MacIntosh, Haralson, and Winesap if you come early enough! 

Wed, Nov 27th: noon - 6 THE LAST DAY

Be sure to reply "Going" to the facebook event so you can get more peeks at what types of goodies we'll have at the show!

Do you have room for more vendors?

This year I'm opening up applications for new vendors. That being said, I already have a lot of vendors from the past that have said they are bringing things and I want to attempt to not over saturate certain items in the show.

13th Handcrafted Hoedown for the Holidays Vendor Application

The Handcrafted hoedown for the Holiday’s is on Friday, November 22nd from 9 to 6 and Saturday, November 23rd from 9 to 5. I plan on running it the same as I have in previous years and convert my apple orchard store into a miniature 'crafty boutique'. Your items will be placed around the shop in an aesthetically pleasing way and customers will check out just once. For this to work, everyone with items in the show must have REMOVABLE, LABELED PRICE TAGS. I save these tags after purchases are made and this is how I know how much you sold and what I owe you.

I take a 20% commission for items sold at the show so please mark your items appropriately so you receive the money you want once that's taken off. Please plan on dropping off or having your items delivered to Lapacek’s Orchard, N1959 Kroncke Road, Poynette, WI 53955 no later than Thursday, November 21st between 9am and 4pm. You can pick up the money you earned as well as any items you may have left on Sunday, November 24th. You do not need to be at the show unless you are there to stock up on fun gifts for your family and friends this holiday season.

If this sounds like a show you’re interested in please continue and fill out this Google form.

APPLICATION FEE: There is also a non-refundable application of $5 that I must receive prior to my reviewing of the Google form. Please send $5 to via paypal to lapaceksorchard@gmail.com once your application is complete. 

I will notify you within a week of your application submittal and receiving the application fee whether or not there is a spot available for your items at the show.

Cider After Dark - episode 25 - 30 recap

Since we have opened up for the 2019 apples season, Diane and I (Kim) have continued with our tradition of "Cider After Dark."  Basically we take our unpasteurized, unpreserved apple cider and mix it with different alcohol's to see what delicious cocktail we can come up with next.  

You can see all the episodes of "Cider After Dark' by heading to our YouTube Channel - Cider After Dark.  You can also get your very own "Cider After Dark" swag on our zazzle site.

I wanted to create this post to summarize the different beverages we've tried so far this season and to make sure you watch at least the one where we make mojitos.  

Episode 25 - Diane and I mixed cider with Black Magic Rum.  We also saw if bitters made it better, worse, or didn't really change anything.

Episode 26 - Diane and I mixed apple cider with Double Chocolate 360.  Again, we tried it with bitters - you'll have to watch to see what we thought!

Episode 27 - the Mojito episode.  I think this may be my favorite episode of Cider After Dark yet!  I seriously still laugh so hard I cry when I watch it!  Be sure not to miss this one.

Episode 28 - Apple Pie on the Rocks ... a bit of cider, cinnamon, and vanilla - check out what we thought!

Episode 29 & Episode 30 go together.  Episode 29 is where we start the prep work for our apple cider sangria.  The apples need to marinate in the fireball for awhile before we finish off the recipe.  In Episode 30 we add the rest of the sangria mixture and give it a try!

I have an idea what we're going to try mixing this week but I'm not 100% sure yet.  Feel free to leave a comment if you know of an alcohol we should try mixing with alcohol ... just make sure it's not a milky product - that tends to curdle (see episode 8 ... whoops!)
