As the weather cools and the seasonal colours change to vibrant reds and oranges, many apple varieties are at their peak of ripeness and flavour. Ambrosia is our top pick, with its satisfying crunch, delicious sweetness and almost tropical flavour, it's sure to become a new favouite. Others like Empire, Jonagold, and Mutsu offer more tart and complex flavours, perfect for eating fresh or baking. Of course, the long awaited Northern Spy and Golden Russet are finally ready and are ideal for the home cider maker. Northern Spy, Cortland and the last of our Honeycrisp also make great baking apples.
We will have two more pressings of our sweet apple cider before the season winds down, so be sure to stock up. Cider freezes well so grab some extra and put it in your freezer after removing a cup or so to prevent the jug from bursting. Thaw during the holidays for an extra-special treat and enjoy cold, hot, or mulled.
Our pumpkin patch is full or beautiful carving pumpkins for Halloween or for decorating. Take a walk out to the patch and pick your perfect pumpkin or grab a ready-picked one from our market. Make sure to swing by the corn maze on your way!
