  1. Picking Gravenstein Apples in the Summer before the pandemic shutdown was a great day for my small family. The 4 of us came to the farm for the day in August 2019. We picked apples and had a great picnic lunch seated at the tables in the shade. We left for home with lots of apples, a box of Asian pears. and some dried gourds. We look forward to another such wonderful visit this year.
