|Most 'Enterprise' apples on the outsides of the trees have been picked, but there are still many in the interiors of some trees for pick-your-own customers who come within the next 2 weeks.|
|The pick-your-own season for 'GoldRush' has just started, and will continue for the next 4 weeks or so.|
Harvested apple prices are the same as last year: $1.21 per pound + tax for harvested #1 apples (practically perfect) and $0.83 per pound + tax for harvested #2 apples (with small cracks or other surface damage). 20 lbs. of harvested #1 apples cost $23.22 + tax, which saves $1.00. 20 lbs. of harvested #2 apples cost $15.79 + tax, which saves $1.00. 40 lbs. of harvested #1 apples cost $44.59 + tax ($1.11 per pound + tax ), which saves $4.00 off the per-pound price, and 40 lbs. of harvested #2 apples cost $29.73 + tax ($0.74 per pound + tax), which saves $4.00.
Smaller amounts of pick-your-own apples are $0.93 per pound + tax for #1's and $0.70 per pound + tax for #2's. For 40 lbs. or more total of pick-your-own apples, the price goes down to $0.88 per pound + tax for #1's and $0.65 per pound + tax for #2's.
Our fall hours continue until Nov. 30, as the sidebar at left shows. During this period, we are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays, and 1 to 6 p.m. on Sundays. I appreciate phone messages a day or so ahead, letting me know when you're coming. If you drop by and I don't see you come in, since I'm out harvesting apples, ring the bell on the sales building.
