I personally invite you all out these next few weekends in October to come apple picking at Mt. View Orchards. Now is time of year to gather your friends and family and make the lovely trip out to our small old fashioned farm located at the base of the majestic Mt. Hood. All the leaves on the farm are turning golden, deep burgundy, bright red or school bus yellow so it is a picturesque time of year as your walk through our farm or go for a hay ride around the perimeter of our farm. We grow over 50 different kinds of apples and they are ready to be picked this month. Come for an apple picking party this weekend and take home some of the tastiest apples around. We are having an endless summer this Autumn and the weather is going to be warm again this weekend so pack up a picnic lunch and plan to come pick some farm fresh apples today.
Its the most wonderful time of the year at Mt. View Orchards. The air is filled with mouthwatering sweetness. I know there are are many weekend adventure options out there and but I would be honored if you would come and enjoy the fruit of our labor this October. We need more farming friends and good homes for our 2014's apple crop. The apples this year are so abundant, clean and delicious. Our farm really is your farm and enjoying your favorite kind of apple as a snack, making apple sauce, apple pie, apple crisp, adding them to salads, baked apples and drying apples will fill all your senses with delight and your homes will smell heavenly. Apples are stunning to behold on the trees. They are so inviting to reach up for and pick from the trees. They smell absolutely sweet and juicy. They make a perfect crunch sound in your ears as your enjoy them and they fill your taste buds with tart pleasure. Some of the many varieties we grow here on our farm are Winter Bananas, Romes, Fugis, Jonagolds(red and gold), Honeycrisps, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Akanes, Galas, Granny Smiths, Gravensteins, Newtown Pippins, Kings, Braeburns, Jonathans, Criterions, McIntosh, Melrose, Empires, Spartans, and Spitzenburg apples. Please get the word out to your neighbors about our small family farm and I hope to see you soon for apple picking at Mt. View Orchards. xoxo, your grateful farmer.
(We also have some of the sweetest blueberries we have ever sold on the farm right now and its not to late to get some. But they are the last of the season so hurry on up friends if you want to freeze some for the coming year.)
