We had amazing weather for the orchard work we undertook this past week - it was a pleasure to have an excuse to be outside. We picked all the Red Delicious and a lot of Northern Spy and Freedom apples, and as we cleared each tree we have taken the time to pick up all the drops for the neighbors’ pigs. We also picked all the pears off our one fruiting pear tree, which we are offering for sale this weekend. The pears won’t keep, so this is the only weekend to buy them, and we will have them here at the farm and at the Ashfield Farmer’s market Saturday October 5 from 9-1. We have apples allocated for whole apples and sweet cider at Ashfield’s Fall Festival (Oct 12-13) as well as here at the farm this weekend and next. We also began pressing for next year’s hard cider this week, and will continue to work on that in the weeks to come.
We have decided to offer a price break on 1/2 case or more of hard cider. People buying 6 or more bottles of hard cider (any varieties) will get $2 off each bottle. This deal will be available here at the farm and at the Ashfield Farmer’s market Saturday October 5.
