October 12: It’s Over!
The U-pick is officially closed! The wind and the pickers decended on our orchard and cleaned us out! We still have some apples left in our outlet such as Spartan and Honey Crisp. Just give us a call before you stop by!
If you already have apples I will tell you the best way to keep them fresh. Keep them in a plastic bag in order to keep in the moisture, but leave the top of the bag open so it will allow gases to escape. Put them in a cold (but not freezing!) place such as a refridgerator, front porch, or garage. If you are putting them in the latter, make sure they do not sit on a concrete floor. Of course, none of this matters if you have already eaten all of your apples!
Thanks to everyone who came out to our orchard. We enjoyed your company and your many compliments about our view! Stay tuned to our website (RSS or Facebook, see the links in the bottom right) to be in the know for when we re-open September 2011. We hope to see you all again next year!
