Apple Orders!

The Washington apples have been accepting orders for their apples. Order info for those who forgot:

Apples in a Seed Farms offers 3 different kinds of apples: Golden Delicious, Honey Crisp, and Fuji. They come in 40 pound boxes and are "field run" apples, meaning they are a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, and/or may have other small defects. They are washed and cleaned, and are the same apples you've gotten previously. You will be notified by email when and where to pickup your order. Golden Delicious and Fuji apples are $27.50 a box. Honey Crisp apples are $32.50 a box. The Golden Delicious and Honeycrisps are generally delivered within the first 2 weeks of October; the Fujis are in December. You MUST get your order in today for the Honeycrisp and Goldens. The Fujis deadline is November 21, but I'd recommend signing up sooner than later as they can sell out before then...go to to order!

As far as New Harmony apples go, we've been researching about a bulk order through some of the apple farmers here, but so far, we haven't been able to find someone able to handle the amount of boxes we'd be ordering. BUT, the good news IS anyone can come and pick up their own box at the NEW HARMONY APPLE FESTIVAL on October 13 - the festival starts at 10 am, and will have lots to see, showcasing the local farmers' apples by the box, and apple cider to boot! Since New Harmony is only a couple of hours away from you Vegasites, I thought I'd share the news and give you the chance to try out some of Utah's finest apples! There IS an organic apple farmer that sells apples in a box for you, but he will not be at the festival - you can travel a short distance to his farm to pickup. :)

I also have one 5 gallon bucket of the raw honey from Wyoming, very light and sweet. It is the same honey as the one-gallon buckets, but for someone who might go through honey a bit quicker - THIS IS NOT THE DARK HONEY THAT WE SOLD EARLIER IN THE YEAR. Please let me know if you are interested. It is 5 gallons, which means it's roughly 62 pounds, and is $150. Let me know if you'd like us to bring it down for you.

I think that's it for now! :)
