Hot Topics At The Farm!
It's Pumpkin Time!
It's October, and the pumpkin patch beckons!
October is a great time to visit the farm! Crisp, juicy apples picked straight from the tree and the perfect pumpkin discovered in the patch are just a couple of the experiences awaiting your family this weekend. Here is a listing of the activities this weekend (10/5 - 10/7):
U-pick apples include Suncrisp, Melrose, Golden Delicious and Red Delicious.
Suncrisp and Melrose will be available Friday, Saturday, and possibly Sunday. Suncrisp and Melrose are each sweet apples with a little zip, making them excellent for eating out of hand and for use in the kitchen. Not available in stores, be sure to visit the farm and discover what real apple flavor tastes like!
Red and Golden Delicious will be available the entire weekend and are two world famous varieties that appeal to those who have a preference for sweet apples. This past summer's hot dry weather may have been rough on people, but it made the fruit as sweet as it could possibly be. One bite and you'll be convinced!
U-pick apples are priced at $20 per large bag (holds approximately twenty pounds when filled) and $12 per small bag (holds approximately ten pounds when filled), and we provide containers.
The entrance for the Suncrisp/Melrose orchard is located at 9263 Morse Rd., Pataskala, and the entrance for the Delicious orchard is located near the corn maze, which is west of the Morse Rd/S.R. 310 traffic light.
The u-pick pumpkin patch holds the perfect pumpkin for your family, but you'll have to search to find it! The patch is open Friday through Sunday from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. All pumpkins from the patch are priced at $6 each. Friday's patch location is near the corn maze (on Morse Rd. west of S.R. 310) and the patch location for Saturday and Sunday will be indicated by directional signage located at the Morse Rd/S.R. 310 intersection.
Asian pears will be available for u-pick Friday morning (10/5) while supplies last! U-pick Asian pears are priced at $1.50 per pound. Orchard entrance located at 9263 Morse Rd, Pataskala.
