Our Sample the Apple and Pear Harvest Day will have a somewhat new format this year. There will be cider and apple variety tasting going on starting at 10:45 am so that you can get a taste of varieties and learn where your favorites are in the Fruit Garden before the picking begins. We will have a period for picking fruit before the educational talks begin, allowing each person to get some of their favorite fruit varieties, and then we will have three educational talks in succession: Our Antique Apple Collection, Kiwi growing and our new kiwi trellis, and Figs and Medlars. Picking will continue for those who do not wish to attend the educational sessions.
We will be handing out bags for people to put fruit in. Do not bring your own bags. No buckets, carts, wagons or wheelbarrows will be allowed. If you are handicapped and need help carrying bags let us know and we will help you.
