Happenings on the Farm
Happy November!! Thanksgiving is upon us & the time is here to start placing orders for holiday pies. Visit our website to order online. You may also call or stop in to place your order. Choose from many varieties including pumpkin, apple, Dutch apple, pecan, cherry, fruits of the forest & more. All pies are 10”. Our pumpkin logs, apple crisp & pumpkin donuts will be available all month. Be sure to get your fix of pumpkin donuts before they’re gone. Don't forget you can always order donuts in advance too.
Our apples are picked and stored for the winter and spring. Our annual Evercrisp Apple Frenzy is underway through the end of November. The Evercrisp apple is a superior, new variety developed right here in the Midwest. It is a Fuji and Honeycrisp cross that has the sweetness of a Fuji, the snap of a Honeycrisp, and the keeping quality of a Gold Rush. These apples will not be here long. They can be stored in the refrigerator for nearly a year. Don't miss out on November's best kept secret-for as long as they last! Other apples are also in market for your homemade pies, applesauce and more. Stop in and stock up.
We will press our first batch of Gold Rush, white apple cider, the week of Thanksgiving. Everyone waits for this "champagne of ciders", a very crisp and tart cider. Don't worry, we will press plenty of regular cider as well. Be sure to try it spiced and hot, delicious for parties.
Enjoy other November treats: jumbo Ohio chestnuts, fresh sauerkraut, squash, and buckskin baking squash. If you are adventurous and want to make your own pumpkin pie, try the buckskin squash. They are fabulous!
