Meet James. At 7 years old he is already showing the signs of entrepreneurship that seem to run in the family. This year he grew his own pumpkin patch, starting 12 varieties of pumpkins and squash indoors from seeds, planted them, hoed and watered them all summer long and now wants to share the bounty with you! Perfect for all your fall decorating and baking needs! Come and see!
After a long wait the Honey Crisp apples are finally ready. Due to the cool spring weather (when the apple trees bloomed almost 3 weeks late!) Most of our varieties have been about 1 week behind average ripening dates. We now have available:

Coming Soon: JonaGold, Empire, Golden and Red Delicious!
While life on a farm with 4 children is very busy, there is nowhere I'd rather be than at the top of an apple tree on a warm September day! Picked for you with love <3
We have been experimenting with replacing our chemical sprays with nutritional sprays. This year we have been able to replace 80% of our chemical sprays with nutritional sprays such as fish oil, molasses, kelp and Eco-Tea. We are very happy with the results and are happy to offer our customers (and our kids!) a total of 10 varieties that have been grown in this way! Questions? Want more information? Just stop by! We are always happy to talk!
And we have many varieties to choose from! Already we have 3 varieties of pears, 9 varieties of apples and 2 kinds of plums picked and waiting for you. Many of our varieties are heirloom varieties once very popular in Huron County and remembered for their unique, rich and complex flavours. Come try a crisp Snow apple, a low-acid Tolman Sweet or a super juicy Lobo. If you see Edmund, our helper from Hong Kong, make sure you say hello!
