All of our apple trees are grafted on "size-controlling" rootstocks. In other words they're "dwarfed" apple trees - fruiting begins about 18" from the ground, a perfect size for children. We grow varieties that begin ripening late August (Paula Red, Akane) continuing into early October (Fuji). All apples are "pick your own" from the orchard. NOTE that we are a small orchard and will close temporarily when there is no ripe fruit to pick.
One crop that is not pick your own is our incredible honey which is extracted from our hives and made available at our farm stand. And what about our bees? They do all of our pollinating; and, busy bees that they are, they supply us with plenty of delicious honey. Some of our customers claim that the honey they buy from us has been very effective in easing their allergies.
