Fall Color Means Beautiful Enterprise Apples!

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.

The Plums are Ready!

plums in JulyThe 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.

If you are having trouble deciding what meat to buy try our Sampler of the Month.  This July it consists of:

2lbs Ground Beef
3lb Sausage of your choice (breakfast, sweet Italian, hot or ground pork)

This is all packaged in a reusable High Meadow Farm shopping bag for a cost of $75.00.  If you would like a sampler please email Jassy at jassy.bratko@gmail.com.

Maple Plum Sauce makes a good side dish for chicken, ground pork or breakfast sausage patties too.

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!
