Life on the Farm
By Farmer Hugh

“What’s your favorite movie?”. I get asked these big categorical questions about favorites all the time. “What’s your favorite – song, movie, book, car, apple, child, instrument,” you name it! I know people who can answer – definitively and immediately – on any of these topics, but I can’t.

Situational favorites. I have “situational” favorites. My favorites depend on my mood; on the situation. I can totally get into watching Transformers, The Outlaw Josie Wales, or The 100 Foot Journey, it just depends on the situation.

With apples I like the Smoothee, the Empire, but right now my favorite is the Early Fuji.

It doesn’t mean I don’t like the others, “I’m just, like, totally into Fuji right now, man.”

Are you definitive or situational about your apples?
How about your movies? Drop me an email, I’m curious.

In the mean time, you don’t have to “pick favorites” because ALL your favorites are in this weekend:

Smoothee – Sweet-Tart & Snappy
Red Chief – Sweet & classic
Empire – like champagne!
Jonnee – super tart
Early Fuji – sweet & crunchy
Gala – super sweet

No need to choose, just mix & match & enjoy!

See you soon on the farm,

Maple Lawn Farms – Deep roots.

Our trees have deep roots, so do we.
We appreciate your business and your interest in our little fruit farm, tucked away here in York County, PA.
Thank you!
We hope you’ve had a chance to visit us this season. If not, we’ll see you soon. All we do is meaningless if you can’t count on us to be here, producing the very best fruit for you, so we’ve sunk some deep roots.
“Fly-by-night” & “Johnny-come-lately” aren’t our style. The McPherson have been here for 5 generations. Generation #6 is living on the farm and growing into the role of grower, well, too fast for their parents.

What should you do now? Print some coupons, pile your family in the car and escape to the wide-open spaces on which we labor to grow our very best for you.

No regrets. It is often said that at the end of our lives we won’t look back on the TV shows we missed or the work that didn’t get done, but instead we’ll only wish we spent more time with the ones we loved.
This is the place to spend some quality time with those you love. It’s those precious moments when you teach your kids or grandkids how to pick an apple, or smile as you enjoy a hayride together.
That’s why we do this. That’s what makes all the hours we invest in this farm worthwhile…
thank you.

 

See you soon on the farm,
Farmer Hugh
