Week 10 Oct 19 – 21

Hello apple lovers. Well this is the last weekend of the season for the U pick. The fruit season was a little early this year, seems to be a continuing trend. This week we have Staymans Winesap and Braeburn for your picking pleasure and there is still a lot of the Olympic Asian Pear still on the trees as well.

Come on out for one last nice day on the farm. Thank you and have a great and peaceful year……… Les, Lyn, Debbie

 

Week 9 Oct 12 – 14

Hi folks and welcome to week 9. This weekend features one of our fans most favorite cooking apples, the Calville Blanc d’Hiver. This variety goes back to the mid 1500’s, France where it was featured in the kitchens of royalty. (secret…..its great just to eat out of hand too!)

Also this weekend we have the Scarlet Ohara. This is a recent introduction, sweet/tart and very crunchy!

Olympic Asian Pears are up for the picking this week. These are the last pears to be picked so get them now!

There are also still plenty of Northern Spy apples on the trees so make sure and pick a few of those to mix in your pie…..

As a heads up…….. next weekend will be our last weekend of the season.

Thanks and happy picking!

Week 8 Oct 5 – 7

Hi apple fans and welcome to week 8 at Jones Creek Farms. The season is wrapping up fast this year so if you want to pick some fruit come on out soon!

The U pick pumpkin patch will be opening up starting this week. We have lots of Carving pumpkins as well as pie pumpkins.

New apples this week are the Belle de Boskoop (pictured), Ashmede’s Kernel, Northern Spy and Winter Mac.

These are some of the finest cooking apples one can find anywhere in the world. Some are also great for eating out of hand and they all are long keepers.
