Spring Has Arrived and All is Well at The Orchard!

SPRING UPDATE!  It took a long time to get here but now that it’s arrived we are busy at work getting ready for the upcoming 2015 season.  We are removing some of our older trees that are coming to the end of their life cycle. (You might see equipment at work if you’re on Route 50 and passing by the orchard.  No need to worry!) And, we’re excited to be planting a number of new trees in the coming weeks now that the ground is starting to dry out.

Looking Forward to 2015

Just as I learn how to post for myself on this Web site our marketing season has come to an early end. With the support of so many loyal customers the apples have disappeared prompting the earliest end to the season in recent memory.

Thank You so much for making the drive to our farm.

Please check in on my web site from time to time during the off season for what is really happening at the Orchard. I’ll strive to do a better job of getting information out to you as I master this communication media.
Rumors and half truths have a way of spreading like wildfire don’t feed the flames.

If you have questions about the farm and what the future may or may not bring just ask and I’ll do my best to answer. Leave a message on text the market phone or send an email.

Thank you again for a great apple season although short on length, certainly not short on quality judging from the many returning smiling faces.

2012 Has Been an Interesting Year in the Orchard.

WELCOME TO OUR SITE!

We hope you’ll find it informative and helpful.  As in the past, we’ll be posting updates about the goings on here at Brown’s, from opening hours, available apple varieties and any other news we want to share.  Please drop us a line if you have any comments or suggestions; we love hearing from our customers.

While many of you folks were heralding our early spring with great fanfare, it wasn’t such a good thing for apple growers as many of you have probably heard by now.  The much warmer than average temperatures in March caused our trees to bud extremely early.  They were then very sensitive to the colder temperatures and frosts that followed.  A number of our trees were affected by all this record-breaking weather, depending on the variety and their location in our orchard.  Miraculously, quite a few were spared, unlike in parts of the East, where damage and loss were very widespread. We’ve now been contending with the extremely dry, hot summer;  it’s been quite a roller coaster ride, to say the least!

The good news is that we will still have apples, although likely not as many varieties.  We are still doing our final assessment.  As always, Mother Nature dictates when our apples will be perfect for picking and you never know what she can throw our way in these last critical few weeks.  On a really positive note, we have a good supply of our delicious frozen cider, including our special “varietals” like Honey Crisp and Gold Rush, that will be available to start the season this year as a result of last year’s bountiful harvest.  As most of our die-hard cider fans know, it’s simply a matter of thawing and shaking the cider in order to enjoy it’s sweet goodness until we start pressing fresh later in the fall.

We hope you are enjoying your summer and we look forward to welcoming you back when we open for the 2012 season, which will be in EARLY SEPTEMBERWe will be announcing our opening date soon, so watch this space…..
