I’m already off schedule! Completely forgot to post my apple update on Wednesday! Oh well – better late than never! So – what’s been happening at the orchard since my last update? LOTS!
I did a bunch of ‘Preview’ mini interviews on vendors that will be out our orchard this Sunday for the 3rd Annual Craft-Apple-Ar. We have a really great crowd of artists, crafters, and vintage coming!
My ‘Saucesational Applesauce Analysis’ continued with one of our newer varieties – the Red Gravenstein.
Cedi and I made a delicious apple crisp using one of our own pre-packaged mixes available in the shop.

And yesterday afternoon (due to a rainy morning) Jared, Cedi and I pressed the first batch of delicious, unpasteurized apple cider of the season.
We’ve had lots of folks coming to visit us to pick up fresh apples, caramel apples, and to pick their own raspberries. So far – the season has been refreshing and fun! It’s great to see how excited people are to have fresh apples again and it’s nice to know that we can provide that to them. Not only do we sell our apples from our store but we have some great partnerships with schools and restaurants too.
