2019 Season Update

HELLO EVERYONE! We look forward to sharing the 2019 Old Homestead Orchard season with you and to see many returning & new faces. Opening Weekend is scheduled for August 31 & September 1.

This year we planted an EXTRA LARGE SUNFLOWER PATCH. Come walk the acres to pick a perfect bouquet. Unfortunately, mother nature has limited our supply of apples. If you think back to this spring, the rain never stopped and the cooler weather affected the pollination of our trees. We will have apples for picking in limited quantities. On the bright side, we were able to plant the sunflower patch between the rain drops! As you can see in the photos, our sunflower patch was hand seeded (in June) and will soon be ready for you to hand pick a beautiful bouquet.

Stay tuned to to our website and Facebook for Opening Weekend Information, other fall events, pricing and availability. More details coming soon.
