Apples Great for Holiday Baking & Fresh Eating

   We have many harvested 'Enterprise', 'GoldRush', 'Sundance' and Coop 27 apples for sale now, of great quality, and I give taste samples.  We also have small amounts of a few other selections, including some from my own apple breeding program.  Tree-ripened apples taste much better, and unlike grocery-store apples, we don't apply wax or post-harvest fungicides to our apples.
We have many harvested 'Enterprise' (front box, left bag) and 'GoldRush' (front box, right bag) apples for sale now, and still have some 'Sundance' (2nd box, left bag) and Coop 27 (2nd box, right bag) apples.
    All these apple varieties are great for fresh eating as well as baking pies, apple crisp, applesauce, apple butter, dried apples, apple muffins, etc. We have many #2 apples for economical holiday baking, and #1 apples for keeping 6 to 8 months in the fridge.
   We're open our regular fall hours until Nov. 30: Mon.-Sat. 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. & Sun. 1-6 p.m.  We're open as usual on Wed. Nov. 27, Fri. Nov. 29 & Sat. Nov. 30.

I'm sorting apples in the sales building most of each day during these very cold days. When the weather warms up again I'll go back to transplanting strawberry plants and blackberry plants, so phone a day or so in advance and leave a message saying when you're coming to get apples.
  We'll have apples for sale for the next 6 months, and from Dec. 1 to May 31 we're open by appointment, so during those months call or e-mail a day or so in advance and leave a message saying when you're coming to get apples.  For highway detour directions, see post below.
