As we give thanks for all that God has blessed us with this year, we want to thank you all for being our loyal customers for helping us have another successful harvest season. We look forward to pruning the trees and blueberry bushes over the winter in preparation for next year. As we do end of the year work, we will have the market open next on Saturday Dec 6, 13, and 20th if you need any frozen cider, hard cider, wine, apples or other items, but the bakery will be closed until August 1st.

Fruit CSA

Interested in our fruit, but find it challenging to make it to our orchard or the farmers' markets that we visit every week?  Check out the weekly Fruit CSA that we offer via our friends at Titus Farms who offer their own locally grown vegetable CSA and more.  The fruit is from our farm, but Titus Farms delivers and coordinates the entire CSA.
