Apricot thinning is in full swing!!
The storm the other day thankfully only did a small amount of damage. We did however lose a fair amount of Omega plums and some quinces – our apples all held on so no problems there!
We still have some 2nd grade Omega plums available on the Stall but they will be finished in the next couple of days.
Freshly picked Royal Gala apples are available on the Fruit Stall at the moment. Sam and the crew pick every night so freshness is always guaranteed. ???
Cox’s Orange are still available but will be finishing them by the end of this coming week.
Red Delicious apples start sometime towards the end of next week …….couldn’t actually pin Sam down to an exact day so will keep you posted.
Golden Delicious apples should be in about 10 days….will keep you posted.
Quinces are a good 2-3 weeks away….…will keep you posted. The other apple varieties are yet to ripen so will let you know when I have a rough idea of the picking dates.?
Good news on the ferret front – I have been ‘ferret free’ for the last 9 days so have my fingers crossed it keeps up.
I have had quite a culling over the last couple of months – at one stage I ended up trapping 12 ferrets in one week ?that was certainly a busy time!
I am still sending out 5kg, 10kg and 15kg boxes of apples – my courier days are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday – contact me on 027 288 6090 for any enquiries or to place an an order.
Remember our hours are 7am-9pm and we only sell what we grow.??

Plenty of Omega plums, Royal Gala and Cox’s Orange apples are available on the Fruit Stall. ??
Omega plums will probably finish by the end of this coming week.
Quinces are still a wee bit away – will keep you posted? Golden Delicious and Red Delicious apples will be ready around mid-April – I will keep you updated as to when other apples varieties are available on the Stall.
