The Season will end early!!

We are having a fantastic year here at the orchard. The weather is such a big factor.. It has been gorgeous!! I can advertise till I'm blue in the face, but if the sun comes out.. people come. And that they have!! As far as people coming..we have had record braking days right through September.. not only weekends but also week days. The result of this is that the apples are getting picked faster than ever before and it looks like we will be finished for the season earlier than in the past. Clearly we are at least a week ahead of where we were last year. Last year was a bumper crop. We started this season with less apples than a year ago and this also is a factor. My advise is, If you want apples from us this year.. come sooner than later!! If you wait till late October you may miss your chance.. Nick
