This year has been a bumper year for most all kinds of fruit in the Northwest. Unfortunately, because of the evil Covid-19, many you-pic orchards are closed.
In light of this situation, I thought it would be cool to have a one-day-only harvest time for families or individuals.
We have our own small manual apple press and a few apple trees that I estimate could yield no less than 10 gallons of cider. My son came by and harvested about 6 gallons today and it was a blast.
So, in trying to come up with something fair and simple I am offering, a one-time-only event on October 24th (Next Saturday) all day, people can come by and enjoy our orchard, press, tools, water hose and kitchen to pick and process all the apples you want.
The price is $25/adult (kids are free) and you can pick all the apples you can find on our property and you can bring in your own from other places as well. We would charge an additional $15/gallon of cider processed or only $5/gallon if you bring your own apples.
Naturally we would expect guests to clean up after they are done and I will be there to assist and direct.
Apple harvesting can be a blast for the whole family and don’t forget, when you’re all done you can enjoy some time in our hot-tub to relax after a great fun day.
