Braeburn are a tart, crisp apple.

Fuji are sweet, crisp apple.

Jonagold are sweet, soft apples.

All of these apples make great eating apples.  They are also great for pies, crisps and baking ,as they will hold their shape very well.  DO NOT USE THEM FOR SAUCE!  They are too crisp for sauce.

If you want apples for sauce, please let us know.  We have excellent sauce apples as well for the same great deal!

 

You can ask for a mix of apples in each half bushel or you can just order a half bushel of one kind - take your pick!

DO NOT PLACE YOUR ORDER FOR THE APPLE SPECIAL ON THE STORE - email me and I will take your order.  The store can not give you the discount!

Keep  these apples  in mind if you are buying items for a school or organization.  These are delicious and we will give you a REAL DEAL!

There are approximately 40 apples to a half bushel - if you buy more them one half bushel we will sell them to you for $10 per half bushel.  Let me know via email if you want to buy some in quanity and I will order them for you. 

If you buy them from the store the normal price is $15 per half bushel.

 

Sorry, but we can no longer deliver to DOT or Cedar Lane!

Hello, Everyone, Welcome to our Extended Fall session.

 

For any new folks - This is how it works.  We will bring your CSA share in boxes to your location.  each box will have your name on it.

PLEASE remember to bring back all the boxes, cartons, rubber bands, etc each week.  We need to reuse these items. 

This week's shares will include:

apple cider

Sun Crisp apples

carrots

Broccoli

Field Trip Pumpkins

Hot peppers

 

Personal shares:

Apple cider

Sun Crisp apples

carrots

Broccoli

Field Trip Pumpkin

 

The apple cider can be frozen.  Be sure to pour off about a third of the carton so that it does not explode in the freezer!  We have heard some amazing stories of blow outs, explosions and horrible mess!  The cider is delicious!  We love the taste the subtle difference in the taste very week depending on the blend of apples that we use.

Sun Crisp apples are sweet and crisp.  These are great for eating or for baking - they hold their shape very well.

 

We have included a Field Trip pumpkin with the share this week.  These are nice size with long stems.  They are decorative and when you are tired of looking at them, they also make a nice pie pumpkin as well.

We are having the BEST broccoli ever this year!  I am not sure why the broccoli is so good, but everyone has been raving about it this fall.  Enjoy!

We do have all the items available on the online store.  This is how the store works - you can order items from the store and pay for them immediate or you can wait and pay at the end of the session.  The items will be included in your share.  If you order any baked goods and it is too late for us to get them made before the delivery, we include them next week.

We hope you will enjoy this new session.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone this week.  Let me know if you have any questions. 

I will be sending out the APPLE SPECIAL email in a bit.
