Coming to a Close

We've been harvesting like crazy all summer!

Registration is now closed but we will continue to harvest into the fall months.  

We had the opportunity to harvest our first cherry tree this year, which was a great and delicious experience!

We've also been busy in the kitchen, making delicious preserves such as Cherry Jam, Apple Chutney, Apple Sauce and of course Apple Crisp. 

Stay tuned for our final tree count and more pictures from the season.

We will do our absolute best to harvest all registered trees, but based on demand this may not be possible, harvesting dates will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Thank you!  We appreciate your donation!
