You do?  Farmketeers, you are in luck.  Here at The ‘Creek, we are in the Dreams Business.  Big or small, modest or outrageous, your dreams can get a good start on the farm.  Let this Mutsu apple represent your most cherished dream.  As you can see, it has already outgrown its nest!  It is ready to fly unfettered into your future!

P1200269Mutsus are giant, delicious apples.  They are a rare flash of late October green.  They are sweet eaters and famous bakers.  In England, Mutsus are called “Oven Busters.”  You stick a Mutsu in the oven, then eat it with a spoon.  Split it with a friend as you share your dreams.

IMG_3733All orchards are now open — Vintage, Dwarf, Mutsu.  You will have to scavenge in some areas; other trees are heavy with fruit.  Cold is in the forecast and our crew is actively stripping trees; so, the situation is fluid.  Get out here and clear the orchards!  Only 1-2 weeks left in apple season!  There are lots of fresh-picked varieties at the farm stand.

P1190902Fresh-pressed cider!  Take home some cider to serve with Apple Potato Bacon Hash.  You can also splurge on cider donuts, served 11 AM to 4 PM on Saturday and Sunday.

IMG_7390Don’t wait til last minute to get your pumpkins!  We always run out before Halloween, and a small army of kids scored their dream pumpkins last weekend.
