    It looks like the “In the Market” information posted on the website is all from 2016…am I missing the 2017/current postings or is the website not updated at this point. I am looking forward to a visit in the near future.


    • Brown's Orchard

      I agree the “in the market” page has not been updated.
      I was forced to undertake the posting on the webpage myself this year for the first time.
      As I learn more about the ins and outs I intend to master and improve what has come before but time is short and the learning curve is steep.
      For now all the posts are going on the main Page with weekly end of week updates for the weekends.
      I am very proud of the content I’ve put forward and I look forward to learning more about the word press this off season.
      I have also opened Facebook Twitter and instagram accounts for the orchard and will also be learning on the job in those forms of communication this season.
      If you ever have any questions don’t be afraid to call, I answer the phone more times than not and always return messages.

    Hello, do you still have Honeycrisp available and do you have cider yet?

  4. Jacob simpson

    Im happy to be part of the browns orchard crew i love my job and they got best apples around

    • Brown's Orchard

      Good to have you Jacob! I’m sure the customers will benefit from your growing apple knowledge and friendly customer service, both really important in the market.

    Do you mail apples and produce. I am interested in some Granny Smith apples and the gel for apple pies. Thank you Rhonda Calhoun ….

    • Brown's Orchard

      Hi Rhonda –
      Sorry for the delay in responding. We don’t mail apples from our market. However, we have had a few customers who have bought apples and mailed them to friends or loved ones. Granny Smith will be ready about the end of October. Hope this helps.

  6. Joe Amorose

    Can you tell me when the Suncrisp’s will be available?


    • Brown's Orchard

      Hi Joe – As we posted “In the Market” several days ago, we will not have Suncrisp for sale in the Market this season- the weather and deer have caused serious problems with this variety, and we will be using the few that we picked in our cider.

  7. Terry Stefl

    Do you have Nittany apples?

    • Brown's Orchard

      Yes, we are one of the few orchards in the area to grow Nittany apples. They should be ready about the middle of October. You can check the website for availability updates or call the Orchard Market.
