We’re in full blown apple season at the Orchard and the Apple Barn is loaded with 8 different varieties of apples for you to enjoy. Apples are the perfect snack no matter what time of day, and with a mix of tart and sweet apples, you can make the perfect pie, applesauce, or apple treat. This week’s varieties include Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, York, Arkansas Black, Winesap, & Fuji.
Fresh-Pressed Apple Cider
It wouldn’t be fall without apple cider, and we are doing our first large cider press of the season this week. We have fresh cider available everyday in the Apple Barn in 1/2 gallon quantities or in slushie form. Come out on fall weekends to enjoy apple cider donuts for an added cider treat.
