Spring

Springtime on the farm is a time of preparing for the upcoming harvest! Tree maintenance and clean up is a very important part of the preparation. Pruning of the apple trees in Winter leaves the orchard covered with brush that must be cleaned up in order to proceed with the planting process

Our corn fields which consist of up to 20 acres are cultivated and prepared in order to be ready for seed planting. Corn on our farm is planted every 5-7 days to ensure that fresh corn is available throughout August and September for you to enjoy.

Pumpkins, Gourds, Squash & Indian Corn are also planted at this time of year.

The strategic planting time of the various seeds, along with the care and maintenance during this busy time on the farm, gives us a sense of great anticipation as we look forward to an abundant harvest in a few short months. All of the hard and laboursome work will be well worth it!

In May, arrangements are made for a drop off of 20 Honey Bee Hives that are placed in our orchard by a local Bee Keeper. The bees assist in pollination of the apple blossoms. Each blossom that is pollinated has the potential to be an apple. Without the help from the Honey Bees we would have to rely on wind, other insects and wild bees which are not as effective. Honey Bees are a great benefit to our apple orchard.
