Apple Update + Final Days of Drawings

Apples Available: McIntosh, Honeycrisp, Wealthy, Cortland

Coming Soon: Sweet Sixteen, Mystery, Haralson, Honeygold

Sept. 11 - The last of the Zestar! is available at Nature's Pantry farm store. Honeycrisp, McIntosh and Wealthy have hit the shelf and Cortland will Saturday as we just picked yesterday!

Raw apple cider $7/half gallon - SOLD OUT in four days this week. Looking to do another pressing this weekend - watch facebook for updates, or contact us directly. We try to keep this in stock as much as possible, but would rather run out then waste plastic jugs (and we have to find time for pressing, lol).

Today and tomorrow are the final days to get in on our week 4 and grand prize drawings! Each bag of apples purchased at our farm store gets you an entry. Sunday we will draw for the week 4 winner, then throw all the entries together to find out who the winner is of an ARF hat and gift certificate!

Where to get our apples

ARF farm store, Saturday Mankato Farmers Market 8-12 Best Buy Lot, New Ulm Community Market and Co-op, Natures Pantry Farm, Wysiwyg Juice Co. (in their amazing juices!).

Other farm store offerings: tomatoes, onions, garlic, potatoes, eggs, apple butter, applesauce, apple rings (as available), raw apple cider (as available).
