So what if there's a little rain outside? Don't let that stop you from coming out to Branstool Orchards and having some fun. We are completely decked out for fall this weekend; we have more pumpkins, gourds, and mums than you can imagine! We also have some kid-friendly activities set up - a cut out pumpkin for sticking your face in for pictures, and a giant measuring stick to see just how tall your little kiddos are. The kids who have been out this past week have loved them!
Don't forget to come out and pick some apples. This weekend, in addition to Jonathan and Cortland, we have Pinova and, a true classic, Red Delicious. You can also get all of these varieties ready-picked in the market, mixed in with a few others.
As of Saturday morning, we still have a few peaches left for the season! It is our last variety, Encore, which is a yellow freestone. It is a beautiful red around the pit, and has a thicker skin. We do anticipate selling out Saturday, so come early or call first.
We also have the first freshly-pressed batch of our famous Blended Branstool Apple Cider of the year! Our picking crew whipped up a delicious batch yesterday made mostly of Honeycrisp.
These are the varieties at Clintonville and Granville this morning:
- Red Delicious
- Golden Delicious
- Grimes Golden
