Bumper Crop for 2015 Season !
After a year's rest, the old apple trees have defied their age and swung into astonishing production. We expect a bumper crop for 2015. We are wondering, "Will anyone remember us after so long a wait?" We certainly hope so! This year we should be around to answer all calls. I am hoping the lady who wanted to take her a picture of her child in the orchard snuck in last year and did so, even though I despaired the orchard looked too dowdy.
There has been a change in the guard of greeter cats. Lyman has had to be brought back into service. Tigger and Totol have not been successful in their training and may need lots of patience from visitors ... if visitors chance to get a glimpse of them. The horses, however, always glad for company, carrots, and cookies, will be joyful at your return.
We hope everyone has a cozy rewarding winter, and we look forward to seeing everyone during apple season!
We look forward to Lodi applesauce apples around the 4th of July, August Red Giant crab apples for beautiful magenta crab apple jelly, and the regular apple season 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.
Check About Us for more on the orchard this summer. Most of the crop will be ripening at the end of August and in early September.
