Apples and pumpkins

 

PUMPKINS~ The Pumpkin Patch 2021 ...  Pumpkin patch is now closed for the season.

 Feel free to bring your own wagon to assist with your harvest!  Don't forget your camera!   Please, only service dogs permitted in the orchard.

Farmer Don's fun facts:

  • A solid green pumpkin picked in October will turn orange by Christmas!  Pumpkins continue to "ripen" both on and off the vine!
  • Pumpkins are fruit.
  • Colonists sliced off pumpkin tips; removed seeds and filled the insides with milk,
    spices and honey. This was baked in hot ashes and is the origin of pumpkin pie.
  • The largest pumpkin ever grown weighed 1,140 pounds.

 "You pick it, you buy it"   Thank you in advance  for your understanding and cooperation  :)

 

Apples are sold in our market by the pound or by the basket.  However, most customers enjoy picking their own during the months of September and October.  Remember that apple varieties ripen at different times during their season.  Feel free to call for the varieties available the day you wish to pick.         

 ***Please call for pricing and availability.***     

 

    Farmer Obie's  fun facts:

  • Once picked, don't throw the apples into the baskets, place them in gently, or they will bruise and spoil quicker than ones placed gently and non bruised!
  • Keep apples refrigerated to preserve crispness!
  • It takes the energy from 50 leaves to produce one apple.
  • It takes about 36 apples to create one gallon of apple cider.
We look forward to your visit at Sun High!
