On September 15, 1993 we opened the doors to the sales room in the Barn and began selling apples. This morning I’ve been thinking about next weekend and what a milestone it truly is. The excitement we felt as we prepared for “opening.” The determination to “make this happen.” But never imagining that our purpose, to grow high quality fruit and to be a place for families, would turn into what we have today. All the people over the years who we greet as friends each fall. We did our part, but we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you!
We are so grateful for everyone who has been a part of our story. You are invited to join us to celebrate this milestone with family, friends and neighbors. Below are details of special activities going on next Saturday. We hope you can join us!
