Growing Update – August 2021
Every year we like to think we’re prepared for whatever the growing season will throw at us. And every year we experience something completely new! Bloom was very prolonged this Spring, resulting in some trees having very heavy fruit set and others being a bit light. The wet July quickly offset any fears of another dry summer, though as time went on we starting wishing it would STOP raining. And then there’s the early ripening of our fruit. Both cherries and peaches were almost two weeks earlier than last year. And we’re testing our apples and pears daily to see what they have in store for us this season. Never a dull moment around here – the fruit trees keep us on our toes. Look forward to sharing our harvest with you very soon!
What we’re be picking…
We are currently picking McIntosh, Honeycrisp, Cortland and Macoun.
Late varieties like Empire and Liberty are still ripening and we expect to be picking them by the first weekend in October. Stay tuned!
Over 9 varieties of Vermont grown apples available throughout the season.
We have nine popular varieties of apples to choose from – Honeycrisp, Rogers McIntosh, Thome Empire, Red Cortland, Macoun, Liberty, Sweet 16, Redfree and Red Rome.
Apples are both pre-bagged and pick-your own.
We also have limited amounts of peaches in August and pears in September.
