appletastinghd2017

About the time the leaves begin to change color, it's time to celebrate the abundance of apples and pears. We're always well-supplied with a large variety of apples and pears to taste and purchase by the pound, as many as 60 different varieties in all!

Tasting lines, as well as our fresh-pressed cider demonstration and tasting, will be open during all six days of this free event.
