Our spraying techniques - We do not spray vegetables unless we sense a dire need.  We will let you know if we do spray them.  We do not spray any berries.  We do spray fruit trees i.e.  apples, cherries, plums, etc.  Please ask us if you have any questions.

Sun Crisp apples are a great early tart apple.  They are also great for   baking - they will hold up well.
  Our apple cider is a mix of lots of apples.  This batch has Ida Red, Gala, Sun Crisp and Cox Orange Pippins.  Each week the cider has a different flavor because each week there is a different mix of apples in it.  If the cider gets fizzy and you do not like it, just boil it on the stove and it will be sweet again.  The boiling acts as pasteurizing. 
 
Honey Nut squash are a nice small winter squash.  It tastes like a butternut only sweeter.  They are a new kinds for us for this year.
