Ayres Family Orchard

Ayres Family Orchard has had a good year in spite of the the weather.  The spring freeze thinned the crop a little bit and hail thinned it a little more.  But the summer heat and dry conditions made the fruit especially sweet and flavorful.

Now is the time to get some of these exceptionally flavorful apples.  Picking is rapidly coming to an end and apples will be gone in a few weeks.  Golden Delicious , Red Delicious, Mutsu, Rome Beauty and Winesap along with Cider and home made jams are available.
