Happenings on the Farm
There’s plenty to taste, see and do on the farm in October. Our Market is bountiful in October with our own-grown apples. As they ripen, we will have Rosalee, Golden Delicious, Melrose, Crimson Crisp, Empire, Jonagold, Ida Red, HoneyCrisp and many more. Ask us while in our Market or visit our website to find when your favorite (apple) will be ripe. Please note that Evercrisp will be available November 1. Our best apple yet!
Now is the time for our fresh apple cider. Served warm with our spices on cold days or chilled on warmer days, our cider is perfect with your favorite WHFF donut. Pumpkin, Cinnamon or Blueberry, anyone?
There are plenty of winter squash in Market. Consider trying a new one this season. Ask for recipes when visiting or find some in our mid-month newsletter. [Sign up here, on our website (in the left column), and don’t miss a thing on the farm.] Our pie pumpkins are here. Consider making your own pumpkin purée this season, due to a canned pumpkin shortage. We will have sauerkraut by the end of month. Unfortunately, there will be no local chestnuts this year due to the late May freeze.
Our bakery is busy with donuts, pies, apple dumplings, fresh breads, fry pies, apple fritters and more. All great bakery treats for cool, autumn days. Don’t forget that you can call ahead to reserve your favorites, Monday – Friday, so you don’t miss out.
The Market, Fall Gift Barn and Pumpkin Pavilion are open 7 days a week, Monday – Saturday, 9 – 5:00 & Sunday, 11-5:00. If you’re looking for more space and less people, plan on visiting the farm during the week. It’s a great day trip getaway.
Our Fall Weekends in October include the Budgie Barn Feeding Experience, horse drawn wagon rides and a walk-thru petting zoo. It’s a perfect time for the family to come out and make memories with us. See you on the farm.
We thank you for supporting our family farm, especially during these extra-ordinary times. Have a safe and healthy fall.
