What's in Season?
In addition to many varieties of apples, here
at Lost Acres we grow several varieties of peaches and pears, as well as quince. We use only our own apples to press our cider. In the gardens we have tomatoes, squash, peppers, onions, herbs, eggplant,
cucumbers and more. Most of our garden harvest is for our own family and
for our Farm Kitchen, and when we have abundance we offer them for sale.
Our harvest season runs from May through October...here's the general schedule for our local zone. (Please note, our only PICK YOUR OWN crop is APPLES....beginning in Sept)
||Harvesting Rhubarb for our Pies and Jams
||Looking locally for Strawberries (sorry, we do not grow our own)
||Harvesting Basil, Parsley, Raspberries, Blueberries
||PEACH SEASON!!! and a few early apples. (fruit for sale)
||Peak Apple Season (Pick-Your-Own begins) and remaining Peaches (we pick)
||Local Pumpkins, Squash and Mums for sale here (pick-your-own apples usually finished by October 1, depending on crop and number of visitors)
During the rest of the year we continue to keep busy.
We begin pressing cider around Labor Day weekend, and continue until our
apple supply (in cold storage) runs out - typically around Christmas. In November
we make hundreds of pies for Thanksgiving, followed by thousands of homemade
Christmas cookies and gift baskets for the holidays. The winter months find us putting up apple butter, making
plenty of hot and hearty soups in the kitchen, pruning all of the apple
trees and, well, breaking occasionally to put our feet up!
