they’re ready…
our much anticipated honeycrisp apples are perfect for picking this weekend! 
our royal gala, silken and honeygold apples are too. 
they are all marvelous apples to enjoy right from the tree!


we are still picking our classic macs and sweet gingergold apples.
sadly, our pears are all picked out.



honeycrisp



so renowned…do they even need an introduction? 
crisp and sweet indeed! they are appropriately named! 
honeycrisps are exceptionally juicy too…so thirst quenching!
we do have a lovely crop to share, but because they are so sought after,
 this will probably be the only weekend to offer them. 





royal gala



another sweet, juicy apple that everyone loves! 
they are the pinkest and prettiest on the farm! and fragrant too! 
their darling smaller size makes them perfect for lunches . 





honeygold  



   a gorgeous sweet and juicy apple without the tartness. 
honeygolds are similar to a golden delicious with more of a crunch. 
 i love the little freckles! (they are actually called lenticels.) 
we are using honeygolds  for our candy apples this weekend.





silken 



the daughter of a sunrise and a honeygold, 
silkens are sweet with a hint of honey flavour. 
originally from the okanagan valley…now in the credit river valley! 
another perfect snacking apple for little hands and tummies.





we are always trying new apple recipes at home. 
this winter i fell in love with cardamom. 
i have outgrown cinnamon...i say we broke up.
cardamom is perfumey, citrusy and warm. 
it brilliantly compliments the complex flavours of apples
with its lovely, almost other worldly, mature flavour. 
we have it in our pie room this year if you would like to try making a pie with it. 



here is a link to a fabulous recipe for 
this gal is so talented and inspiring.
attending one of her pie workshops is on my bucket list. 
maybe we can convince her to visit our farm. 


see you soon
warm hugs
