As always please call in advance for updates or check the website so we don't disappoint you.....See you soon :)
For those new to the farm you will see some dead trees, on November 10th. 2014 we were in the 70's three days later on November 13th. we hit a low of -10 degrees. The sudden severe drop caused the sap to freeze in the trees and this caused the loss of almost 1,000 Apple trees. The trees did not have a chance to go dormant . We planted roughly 800 new Apple trees in 2016. Please forgive the dead trees, we sure did not want to lose the little guys and are slowly replacing the lost trees.
