Are there still apples?
Yes! We have Gold Rush, Braeburn, Rome, Granny Smith, Fuji and Red Delicious.
The majority of the apples left are great keepers for over the winter!
How much longer will we have apples?
We are thinking at least 2-3 more weeks. But we'll keep the orchard open, at least self-serve, if there are still good quality apples available, so it could be even longer. If there is no blog post that we are closed for the season, then we still have apple available!
It should be half decent weather this weekend with no rain! We have grass rows but come prepared with boots or shoes you can get dirty. Most areas aren't too bad but we have one corner of the orchard that is always a little wetter than the rest and there is lots of apples over there!
We also got a new sign for our farm!! Exciting for us because we have wanted to do this for awhile. We had a sign years ago but it just got too old since it was wood. Thanks to Joe Dini from NI Corp. in Brooks for making the sign holder!
Well here is a teaser of our apple slingshot for next year's apple festival! My kids sure enjoyed it!
