Apples and Pears for Sale!


Thanks to everyone for making our 27th Apple Tasting a rousing success!

We still have a good supply of great fruit: Old favorites, excellent long-keepers and small quantities of rare apples from our tasting line!

We also have a particularly good supply of choice pears including the highly regarded Anjou, Concord and Comice (of Royal Riviera fame), all for the insanely low price of $.69/Lb.

Feel free to call for availability, and get 'em while they last! Both locations, with largest supply at our Stark Location.

Great time to buy!
