Great holiday weekend.

We are recovering from a wonderful weekend at the orchard! We had so many people come out to pick apples and visit the store. It is always fun to see the little ones pick their first apple. One little one was just beginning to talk and added the word “apple” to her vocabulary. So sweet.

We are already nearing the end of pick your own. Because the apples were ready early, this was our 3rd weekend for picking. There are still some apples to be picked and we will continue pick your own for the next 2 weeks. We will always have apples in the store and we have some fun events coming up that we’re looking forward to at the orchard.

On Saturday, September 14, it’s the 2nd annual Experience Robertson County. There will be events and activities in all 11 towns in the county. We are one of the 2 stops in Adams and we had such a big day last year and anticipate an even bigger day this year. So many folks that live close by, that had never been to our orchard, came by and got to see what we do at Shade Tree. The only down thing to the day is that we can’t get out and visit the other 10 communities. Each one is different and offer something unique.

We are excited about our second pancake breakfast happening on October 5. The first one in July was so successful, so we thought we would do it again More details on that later.

Thanks to everyone who came out and made our weekend so successful! We have the best customers!!
