We are so appreciative of how understanding everyone has been this year with our challenging apple crop.
We have had a great season with wonderful weather and lots of people out picking and enjoying the orchard.
All of this combined means that we have very few apples left in the orchard. With a lot of thought and consideration we have decided to close at the end of October. We will still have already picked apples, cider, donuts and pumpkins in the apple barn and encourage people to come on out and enjoy the orchard.
The last day that we will be open will be October 27th. After that date you can still find us at the Ithaca Farmers Market on Saturday's and Sunday's. And you can always get apples and cider by appointment at the orchard.
We hope to see you out here to help us finish off the season!
A pick your own paradise....
