Map and Times
Summer Apple Season !
The Dayton apples, the red apples in Row 1, are ripening early. So in addition to coming to pick by appointment, Saturday morning, July 25th, we shall be open to all, from 9am 'til it gets so hot everyone will want to flee to somewhere cooler :-)
The Daytons are especially good for folks with allergies, because these early apples have not been sprayed. They are a nice size snack for lunch boxes, and make amazing pies and fried apples.
The horses look forward to having company, not to mention carrots, and cookies.
There should also be some magenta fleshed Red Giant crab apples for anyone who would like to wow their friend with presents of lovely magenta crab apple jelly.
We look forward to seeing everyone soon and the regular apple season at the end of August !
New visitors be sure to bring the map, and especially the virtual tour of Apple Hill Road, being careful to leave (occasionally grumpy) neighbors in peace. (On-line maps or your GPS may not guide you to the correct road.)To be certain someone will be there to greet you, email email@example.com the night before, and we will keep a look-out for you.
From Louisville, Kentucky, take the Gene Snyder Freeway to Old Henry Road (Exit 29). Go east 2 miles. (Old Henry curves left, then jogs right.) Turn right on Apple Hill Road (click for a tour) for 0.7 mile. Where Apple Hill forks, take the middle fork. When you see a red pole gate, open it up and come on back. Continue along the black rail fences. When you think you are lost, you are almost there. When you see the green umbrella, you have arrived.
If you feel lost, call 502-767-5245, leaving neighbors to rest in peace.
Apples are still $7 for a ~10 pound bag, a smaller bag for $5, 3 apples for a dollar, and $25 for a bushel (4 ~10 pound bags) with special rates for groups. The honey man may stop by with local honey. And there are still kitties and horses who are looking forward to seeing you.
