Maine Harvest Festival

This weekend is the Maine Harvest Festival. Is this the third year or the fourth? Who’s counting? We will be there with apples and cider. Stop by and try some different varieties. We will be at the Cross Insurance Center on Saturday from 10 to 6 and Sunday from 10 to 4. If you attended last year, you may have noted the tight quarters. We are in the arena this year so there should be plenty of space. Click here to find out more about the Maine Harvest Festival.

All the apples are picked!

We scurried about last week picking the last scattered varieties of apples. We now have Northern Spies, Russets, Golden Delicious, Tolman Sweet, Golden Russet, Northwestern Greening, Red Delicious, and Starks.

You don’t have to rush in this week. We had a fairly large crop this year, so we will have apples all winter long, probably into April.

Please be sure to ask if you don’t see what you want on the shelf. With 40 varieties, and 5 sizes of containers, and separating apples into 2 sizes and 2 quality grades that makes a dizzying 800 possible permutations, and we simply don’t have shelf space for that. We especially try to keep our apples fresh by having them packaged and on the shelf for you to buy for only a few days before discarding them for fresher apples, so supposing we did put up 800 bags of apples and we only sold one hundred or so per week that would be a tremendous waste. We are happy to package apples to your order so you get the freshest apples possible.

Farmer’s Market Season may be winding down, but we are still gearing up!

Thank you, Hermon Farmer’s Market for a great season. See you next year!
Tomorrow marks the final outdoor market for the Dover Cove Farmers’ Market from 9-1! We will have a selection of apples, cider, vegetables, maple syrup and more! We will have our own farm raised pork and beef as well. In digging in the freezer yesterday, we found a small amount of bacon for lucky early customers, in addition to sausage, ribs, ham steak, chops and more! In the beef department, we did locate some T-Bone steak, in addition to our Ground Beef, soup bones and marrow bones!
We look forward to selling our products on the online market Dover Cove Market Place! First pick up will be November 8th!
Even though Farmer’s Market season is winding down, we will still be open for sales at our Farm Stand all winter long, and well into the spring! We have picked over 4000 bushels of apples, so we won’t run out anytime soon! We will be pressing cider all winter as well as long as we have apples to press.
Our vegetables can be found at our store as well including squash, pumpkins, rutabaga, turnip, carrots, beets, cabbage, potatoes and more!
Don’t forget we still have a good selection of our own Maple Syrup, raw local honey, dry beans, eggs and more!
Trick or treat at the store tonight for a free apple!

Macouns and Wolf Rivers

Both of the most requested apples that we grow are now available.  Macouns are good sized this year, despite the dry weather that kept McIntosh smaller.  Wolf Rivers have sized up nicely in the last two weeks and are about as large now as they usually get, despite all the stories of them growing to be the size of basketballs.

Remarkable sawfly damage on an apple

 

This an example of sawfly damage on an apple. Usually, it is not this pretty of a design. The remarkable thing is that this scar was made when the apple was just the size of a pea, right after blossom. This photo was taken by our customer, Barbara Crispell.
