Hi folks, I’d like to thank everyone who’s been braving the weather and coming out to the farm to pick in the rain. Its nice to know there are others out there who know, farming is a rain or shine event!
We are getting into the real premier varieties this week! Pictured is Liberty and also available is the first Jonagolds. These two varieties ripen over a period of time and hang well so we will have them for a while. Also this weekend are Pinova and the first of the Kings. The Comice winter pear will be available to pick this weekend as well.
There are still lots of Cortlands, Gala, Spartan, Bramley, Sweet 16 and Karmijn on the trees so have at those while they’re still available.

Hello everyone and welcome to Jones Creek Farms and the U pick season already well underway. This is weekend 4 and its a big week with Mollie’s Delicious (pictured), Tsugaru, Aroma, Rambo, Ellison’s Orange, Jonamac, Novamac, Pink Pearl, Dayton, Alkmene and Stearns.
Big news this year is we are open on Fridays as well as the usual Saturday and Sunday. Same hours, 10 – 5. Also since the season seems to have moved back a little more towards normalcy so we have re-instituted the U pick pumpkin patch. Hopefully we will be rolling in ripe pumpkins for carving or eating by the first week of October. Happy picking everyone!
