Carp Fair, Russets & more

IMG_3115

We’re getting ready for the Carp Fair this weekend in Carp!  That means no Carp Farmers’ Market this weekend but we’ll be back there  until the final market on October 25th.

Please be aware that our insurance does not allow us to have anyone in the orchard to pick their own apples.

Starting this weekend we will have the Golden Russet & Wolf River apples along with Macs, Cortland and Lobos and more.

We’ve finally got a few winter squash varieties in the store  for this first warm week of fall!

Enjoy the lovely weather!

Cortlands, Macs, Lobo & Honey Crisp are on the shelves

We had a heavy frost last night but no damage to the apples. We’ll see how the squash and pumpkins made out next week.  Tomorrow is the last Market in Carp before the Carp Fair.  They’ll be back for four more Saturdays starting with the Harvest Celebration on October 4th.

New this week we’ve got Honey Crisp and Cortland apples.  Macs, Gingergold, Wealthy, Lobo and Paula Red are on the shelves along with crabapples, plums and pears.  We’ve got cider, garlic and some winter squash too.   We’ll have hot apple cider available by the cup on the weekend.

Fall is Here!

The cool weather makes it feel a bit more like autumn today.   Baking pies and crisps seems like a good thing to do.

We’ve got a few of our winter squash varieties in the store: Spaghetti, Cream of the Crop and Delicata are on the shelves along with some gourds for fall decorating.

Randy will have both Dolgo and Heslop crabapples at the market along with Macs, Lobos and other apple varieties.

We’d like to remind everyone that our insurance does not allow people in the orchard to pick their own apples.

Beautiful local mums  from Brantim farms on the porch make it feel a bit more like autumn!

At the market and in the store this week we’ll have Macs, Lobo, Paula Red, and Wealthy apples.

There will be Dolgo crabapples (the small ones) and Damson & Toka plums along with the first pears of the season.

We’ve got local mums on the porch and some Mennonite pickles and jam in the store.   We’ve reorganized our store this year with more space for the squash which should start coming in over the next weeks.  Hope you like it!
