  Harvest is in full swing


Harvest is in full swing now as the summer season is upon us.  The very dry April and May (40 days without rain) ushered in a beautiful June with ample rain.


The fruit set on our apples was spectacular.  However, our veggies suffered in the day in and day out dryness.  Finally, they got their feet wet and took hold in June.


We finished our first cut hay in early June.  Hay yield was light due to the dry weather.  However, as we started our second cut in July, the quantity was fantastic.  During July, the drought returned and our plants suffered.  We were forced to manually irrigate 3,000 tomatoes, 2,000 peppers, and 800 eggplant plus everything else daybreak to dark 2 tractors just hauling water.


The results have yielded an outstanding selection of veggies with outstanding flavor.  Size on tomatoes and garlic are small.  Garlic in particular needs an inch of rain every week in July.


The apple harvest has begun with Zestar and Ginger Gold.  The size is smaller than normal but the flavor is quite sweet.  We hope to have our first Pick Your Own wagon rides starting August 29 if Mother Nature cooperates.  Same pricing as last two years.


1/2 bushel - $25.00


1 Peck - $15.00


Pre-purchase bags at the store before boarding the wagons.


Once again, our supply of beef and pork is in excellent shape.  Our own custom processed beef jerky made from our own beef will be available by fall.  Orders are already being taken for holiday turkeys.  First come first choice.  $25.00 deposit.


We expect to offer a huge supply of autumn squash and pumpkins.  Our mums are showing early color ahead of schedule due to the summer weather.


Special mum price 4 for $20.00 plus tax


Looking forward to having you and your family visit the farm.
