please don’t squeeze my apples

This special orchard shirt came to be simply as a way to help educate folks that apples bruise very easily.  The best way to not have a bruised apples is to not squeeze it, not drop it and treat it with gently care.  This is why all of our apples are picked by hand and handled as carefully as possible.please dont squeeze

I sold these tshirts at the shop for a few years … there are still a few there.  I believe we have a bunch of adult larges (it may be medium) and then kids’ sizes.  I just had to snap a picture of this lovely customer that came to visit the shop sporting her very own Lapacek’s Orchard “please don’t squeeze my apples” tshirt!

Apple Cider and Fireball

Sometimes when it’s a bit slow in the store we just have to try out a new fun beverage!  Check out Diane and me mixing our own unpasteurized, unpreserved apple cider with Fireball!

WE concluded that approximately 8oz of cider mixed with a shot and a half of fireball whiskey is the perfect combination!

A Bushel and a Peck

Are you planning on processing some apples?  Perhaps making some applesauce to can or freeze?  Prepping pies to last you until next season?  Or does your family just eat A LOT of apples? apples in a bushel We offer special bushel pricing at Lapacek’s Orchard.  If you call ahead to order your bushel you can save $3/bushel! 

Call ahead to order your bushel and save 608-635-4780

What is a bushel?  Well – it’s a volume measurement.  We fill the bushel box as much as we possibly can without damaging the apples and that’s what you get.  It ways approximately 40 lbs.  One bushel of apples makes approximately 18 quarts of applesauce or 10 quarts of apple butter or 6 cups of dried apples, or 16 apple pies.

We also sell apples by the peck (approximately 10lbs), 1/2 peck (approximately 5lbs) and 1/4 pecks (approximately 2.5lbs).

Always Construction Season

Most of those who are affected by the construction of Hwy 22 have already figured out how to get around it.  I just wanted to post a few maps to show you that getting to our orchard is still pretty simple and really doesn’t take much more time than when you could go on Hwy 22.  its always construction season buckyI thought it appropriate to start this blog post out with a photo of my girls with the “It’s Always Construction Season” Bucky from the Bucky on Parade in Madison, WI. 

I picked some general spots in locations many of our customers come from.  If you’re coming from places south, east or west of us there should be no problems with your standard route.  Those coming from areas to the north of us may have to take an alternate route.Fullscreen capture 8232018 100724 AMFor those coming from Poynette, I just started right at the Poynette Elementary School.  This is the route we take when we drive our girls to and from softball, volleyball and cross country right now.  I would say this takes about 1 minute longer than it took us on the back roads.  I’m not sure why Google Maps won’t let you stay on Hwy 60 the whole time but you can.  Hwy 22 isn’t closed until just north of the Hwy 60/Hwy 22 intersection.  I tried to adjust the map with some drawing in paint.  It’s not perfect but should give you the idea.  Just take Hwy 51 South until you can go East on Hwy 60.  Then take a left (North) on Kroncke and you’ll be at the orchard in no time!

Fullscreen capture 8232018 100752 AMFrom the Piggly Wiggly in Pardeeville, take Hwy 22 south, then Hwy 16 east, south on Hwy C, a right (west) on Hall road and a left on Kroncke.Fullscreen capture 8232018 100936 AM

From Tamarack Pizza in Portage, take Hwy 51 south, then east on Hwy 16, south on Hwy C, a right (west) on Hall road and a left on Kroncke.  I think going south on Hwy 51, east on Hwy 60 and a left (north) on Kroncke Road would also work for those coming from Portage.

I hope these maps help you a bit on figuring out how you’ll make it to the orchard this fall.  I think for those of us who drive on Hwy 22 often enough know that while the construction is a bit a of pain it’s definitely going to be wroth it.  It was a road that really needed to be fixed.
