The Buzz

Hayrides today from 9-5. It's a beautiful day to take a ride through the orchards and check out the gorgeous foliage.
Reservations for our annual Apples and Wine Festival
are now being accepted over the phone and in person. Don't miss this fun fall event featuring our fruit wines and hard ciders, make-your-own apple pie, live music, and much more! November 8th and 9th. $20/person includes wine tasting, signature glass, gourmet food pairings, and souvenir.

Wow! What a fast season this has been. Apple picking was extremely popular this fall, and we are very happy that so many of our customers have come out early to pick. The growing season presented a few challenges, as it always does, but this year our yield was nowhere near as big as we would have liked. We are going to have all the favorite varieties available in our store for as long as possible, but picking has come to an end. 
Apple varieties that are available in the store are always listed in the column just to the right. Cider and cider donuts are available every day in our store. 
Wine tastings are offered Fridays from 3-5:30, and Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5:30. Our Sweetheart Hard Cider just won another medal, this time in the International Women's Wine Competition!
Please remember, due to liability, no dogs are allowed at the farm. Thank you!
You can now order your copy of Grammy's Kitchen ~ The Russell Orchards Fruit Cookbook online!
