A Note From Annette & Randy:

As of October 18, 2014, The Fall Colors are very beautiful in SoutSweet Crisp Fuji Apples on the tree ready to be picked by you.hwest Michigan right now. They are at their Peak Colors (according to me). Every Saturday and Sunday we have U-Pick Apples from 10am to 4:30pm. We now have U-Pick Sweet Fuji & Tart Braeburn Apples October 18 & 19 & 25 & 26. That will be the last day for U-Pick and the farm market. U-Pick Apples are $.79 per pound. For Saturday 10/18& Sunday 10/19 we do have U-Pick Sweet Golden Delicous Apples (good for anything) & Red Delicious Apples (good for eating only). This is the last weekend for u-pick Golden & Red Delicious. There is about 25 pounds in a half bushel basket. We do give you a free bag for the U-Pick peaches & apples but if you want the basket it is an extra $3. You are welcome to bring your basket back from last year for you to use and take with you. Apple U-Pick is open ONLY Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4:30pm. The last hayride leaves for the orchard at 4:30. So you cannot go u-pic after 4:30. There is NO admission charge & we offer a FREE picnic area with playground & FREE hayrides to the orchard. We are NOT OPEN for U-Pick during the week. You can buy the peaches or apples already picked at our farm market everyday 9 to 7. We are 1 hour later than Chicago time.

Sweet Honeycrisp ApplesApple season is in full swing now with Sweet Crisp Honeycrisp Apples. That is still the favorite apple of the year. Honeycrisp is good for eating, baking, applesauce & anything you want for $22.99 half bushel. We will be running out of Honeycrisp Apples around Wednesday October 22. Call ahead to make sure we still have them.

We are having a FALL APPLE SALE!! The more half bushels of Apples you buy, the more you save. 1 half bushel is $16.99 each. 2 or 3 half bushels of apples are $12.99 each with a savings of $4 each. 4 or more half bushels are $10.99 eachTart Crisp Braeburn  Apples ready to picked off the tree! with a savings of $6 each. We have 9 different kinds of apples on sale. This week we have added Super Sweet Late Fuji Apples, Tart Very Firm Braeburn & Sweet Cameo Apples. We also have Very Sweet Swiss Gourmet, Very Sweet Snow Sweet, Sweet Gala Apples, Sweet Golden Delicious, Mild Red Delicious, Sweet/Tart Jon-a-gold Apples, & Tart Empire Apples. They are great for everything including eating, & baking (except Red Delicious). These Apples are picked fresh from our own farm. Sweet Late Fuji Apples are the best for keeping and &eating all winter. That is what Annette (and the whole farm) loves to eat & bake. As long as you keep the Fuji apples cool but not frozen, they can last into spring. The other kinds of Apples (except Honeycrisp) will keep in a cool place until around Christmas.

Improved StanlSweet Golden Delicious Apples to pick off the tree or buy already picked at the farm marketey plums are just like Stanley plums you have known, but these are newer improved varieties. They come off the pit very easy, sweeter and more juicy than Stanley Plums but are slightly smaller. These plums still can be used all the same ways for canning, liquor, drying or just eating. $7.99 basket or larger quantities are available. All the plums are grown on our own farm.

We have the best sweetest apple cider of the season this week. Sweet 100% Apple Cider ($3.99 half gallon or $6.99 gallon). We have our own blend of Sweet Apple Cider with no sugar added. We use all our own Apples & it does have Honeycrisp Apples in it (along with other kinds of sweet Apples). Try a free sample.

Sweet Local Blue Concord Grapes are almost done. We have them for $2.99 quart box. Concord grapes are great for eating but DO have Seeds.

At the Farm Market we have the last of Local (not red ripe) Tomatoes, Roma Tomatoes, Local Grape tomatoes, Fresh Cauliflower, Cabbage, New Potatoes (red & yukon) & Beets. Acorn, Spagetti, Buttercup, Sweet Potato & Butternut Fall Hard Squash. Peppers include Green, Yellow, Orange & Purple Peppers, Jalapeno, Cherry Bomb, Anaheim, Poblano, Roasting, Sweet Snacking, Finger Hots, Cayenne, Hot or Sweet Banana Peppers.This is all from local farms within 20 miles of our farm market.

Beautiful Pumpkins for carving or decoratingFor Fall decorating we have beautiful local Mums with lots of buds waiting to come out in their glory,3 for $13.99. These are mums that were grown in a field instead of a greenhouse, so they are more likely to come back next year. Before winter hits, put straw or leaves over the mums to give them some insulation so they can make it through the winter. This doesn't always work, but it will increase your chances. Great large Pumpkins finally have arrived for you to look over and take home. If you want small Pie Pumpkins for inside or outside we have them for $.99 each. Beautiful Indian Corn $.79 per ear is scattered all around the farm market. Really cool gourds (for decoration) 2 for $.89 are in too.

Gas in Michigan is currently $3.19 gallon.
