Apple Alert- “Git yer Grannies!”

Granny Smith: Once every 10 years, we get a crop like this.
Interesting Image
Grab your Grannies whilst you can. They will SELL OUT in the U-pick orchard in less than 7 days.

Limited time picking for Grannies & JonaGold Apples.

Just a quick orchard update. Granny Smith apples rose to fame during Martha Stewart’s tenure as America’s home cooking guru. They are extremely tart, GREEN apples. Great for baking.
We have a very limited planting of them and a VERY limited chance to get a good crop of them, but this is one of those exceptional years.
Fortunately & unfortunately, they are SUPER POPULAR (unlike me in high school:-)! They will SELL OUT likely within 7 days of this email.
Everyone always asks me when Grannies are ready, so here’s your fair warning. Get here this weekend to get them or your Grannies will be GONE!!!

See you soon on the farm,

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,
Farmer Hugh
