The sweet cherry orchard is closed for the season. The small crop we had, they went fast. Hope to see you next year or this September/October at the farm market to pick apples and pumpkins.
Thank you for your continued support of our farm.
The apples look great and you can't beat the taste of a delicious Michigan apple. Different apple varieties will become available as they ripen.
Are you looking for an apple to make applesauce or pies with? We have several choices. Northern Spy, Ida Red, Jonagold and Cortland are particularly good. Many also like MacIntosh for sauce. You can also mix your apples. They don't have to all be one variety to make a delicious pie or sauce. The Fuji is the sweetest apple of all of them and a great keeper. Red Rome is often used by processors for baking. Almost any apple except Red Delicious is great for baking and sauce.
The most popular apple is the Honeycrisp . It is a cross between a Macoun and a Honeygold. We are often asked why it is more expensive. It is harder to grow and a very fussy apple that requires a great deal of calcium and special storage conditions.
