2014 - Another Challenging Year Ahead!
We are again facing a limited availability of apples. Our trees are still recovering from a tremendous amount of damage they received two years ago when we lost our entire crop to snow and freeze damage. Many fruit trees are biennial bearing and produce heavy crops one year and a light crop the next. We are generally able to control this with thoughtful pruning practices. Due to the damage two years ago, our trees are completely out of synch.
Here is what this means for us this year: We have no McIntosh, Ida Red, Melrose, or Golden Delicious apples. Cortland and Gala are extremely limited. We do have a more typical Jonagold and Northern Spy crop.
We DO have a nice crop of Bartlett Pears.
Pears will be available in our store beginning September 1.
Our store will open for the season on Labor Day, September 1 with special store hours of 9:00-6:00.
Store Hours: Sunday-Wednesday Noon-6:00 p.m.
Thursday-Saturday 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
These have not been easy years. We are grateful for what we do have available for you and your family!
