Pick your own, pick the best!

Claverack, NY 12513 - (518) 851-6351

A GOOD SEASON IS BEGINNING for most varieties of apples and pears. LIBERAL RAIN AT NIGHT AND ALMOST DAILY SUN have given the apples good size and color. ALL APPLE VARIETIES ARE PLENTIFUL except for Cortland and McIntosh. We have a good crop of Honey Crisps and Gala, and an excellent crop of Golden Delicious. As always, there will be plenty of Red Delicious, Idareds, Macouns and Empires. ALL PEARS ARE PLENTIFUL except for Seckels.
