Plan a visit to the farm this weekend and sink your teeth into the Goldrush experience and discover a real treasure!
Stayman Winesap is an heirloom variety that has withstood the test of time! Classic apple flavor combines with excellent baking qualities to make this apple a real winner. The crop this year has never been better!
Rome originated in southern Ohio nearly two hundred years ago and has been grown on our Morse Road farm for four generations. Rome trees laden with fruit are a thing of beauty!

They're available, just ask, and we'll point you in the right direction.
