Fall Color Means Beautiful Enterprise Apples!
The farm is ablaze with color now and that means we are now picking beautiful Enterprise apples! These are firm and crisp, with a spicy aroma and mild tartness. They are wonderful for fresh eating and cooking and one of the best apples for long term storage. They will keep under refrigeration or in a good root cellar until spring. Their flavor only improves with storage too.
Bushels of Wonderful Apples!
We are now picking wonderful Liberty apples! These deep red beauties have a crisp, sweet flavor and are great for eating fresh and cooking. We still have Freedoms available and will be picking Enterprise toward the end of October. We have many more apples than we can store right now so we are offering bushels for sale. Now is the time to think of stocking up for the winter!
Bushels (40lbs) are $60.00 (Perfect for storage of whole apples)
Bushels of slightly blemished are $40.00 (perfect for making pies, applesauce, cider and freezing)
Bushels must be pre-ordered by emailing Jassy at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can have them ready for pick-up at your convenience.
Its Apple Season at High Meadow Farm!
Its apple season here at High Meadow Farm! We have a wonderful crop of certified organic fruit this year and right now we are picking Freedom apples. These crisp, juicy apples are a cross between a Macoun x Antonovka with a sprightly flavor that is good for fresh eating or cooking. They are a great addition to cider and will store well in your regrigerator for up to 3 months! We are also fully stocked with bacon and all cuts of pork and beef, in addition to maple syrup and Hubbardston honey.
The Plums are Ready!
The beautiful orchard bloom in the spring has translated to a bounteous crop of fruit this summer and we are happy to say that the plums are ready! These are the small, almost cherry size variety that are just full of sweet, juicy, deliciousness. We are also happy to say that we now have pork chops, spare ribs and country style ribs back in stock. Pork pairs wonderfully with fruit of any kind and is particularly good with plums. Check out the recipe for Plum Maple Sauce at the end of this post. This year we also have our own raspberries available in the store.

We picked Enterprise Apples today!
They are juicy with spicy, full rich flavor. The flavor is very good at harvest and it improves after storage. They are great for fresh eating or cooking. Supplies are very limited though so get them while you can!
Apple Season is Finally Here!
Today we picked our Liberty apples! These are a great desert apple similar to a Macoun. The flavor is sweet/tart and improves with storage. They are excellent for cooking too.
Due to an over abundance of apples last year we have a very light crop of apples this year. Our Freedom and Redfrees didn’t produce any fruit and we will have a very limited supply our Liberty and Enterprise. We should be picking Enterprise in the next couple of weeks and we look forward to offering a small amount of Goldrush for the first time this year. Those will come near the end of apple season.
Stop by the farmstand and enjoy some apples while they last!
