Apple Picking: A Note of Apology

If you've come to this page seeking updates about our Pick-Your-Own organic apples, we are sorry to say that that our trees have fallen into biennial production and we do not have enough fruit to offer pick your own apples. WHY?  In 2012 freezing temperatures destroyed the apple blossoms and we had no fruit. Last year we had a bumper crop!  The trees then naturally fell into biennial production.  Commercial orchards spray to thin the trees and keep a consistent yield year to year. As an organic orchard, we hand thin the crop, and we find when the trees have such a large crop it is next to impossible to thin enough during mid June to influence the following year's buds. The trees are resting and we expect to have a healthy 2015 harvest. We hope you will support the farm in other ways.
