2019 Season Update

This year we planted an EXTRA LARGE SUNFLOWER PATCH. Come walk the acres to pick a perfect bouquet. Unfortunately, mother nature has limited our supply of apples. If you think back to this spring, the rain never stopped and the cooler weather affected the pollination of our trees. We will have apples for picking in limited quantities. On the bright side, we were able to plant the sunflower patch between the rain drops!

Stay tuned to to our website and Facebook for Opening Weekend Information, other fall events, pricing and availability. More details coming soon.
