Our newest apple, Hudson Hurd, born Dec. 11, 2021, joins a crew of sisters and cousins, Jurni Abigail, 17, Cortlyn, 5, Scarlett, 5, and Suzanna 2.  Charles and Sarah keep very active as our overall Farm Manager Imagineers. Charles and his capable crew oversee the care of the orchard plantings, and growing those delicious crisp, juicy apples you love harvesting.  You’ll notice exciting renovations in our Historic Dutch barn this season.   Proactive planners, Sarah and Charles brainstorm, design and set up, many of the farm’s NEW creative activities. Sarah coaches our team, directs the action, and your family makes it all happen!  Grandpa Phil is the farm’s chief Project Engineer and visionary. He helps us brainstorm and build  many of your favorite activities throughout the fields; however, he prefers to work behind the scene. Visionary, Grandma Susan is Director of Beauty & Fun, enjoys people, and she helps mentor the team. Daughter Megan is our family artista, and designs our 4 acre cornmaze and lends a hand with social media and many  creative visuals out in the fields.   Megan and her girls, Scarlett, 5 and Suzanna 2, live in Maryland, and we eagerly look forward to their visits. We’ll keep you posted of Happenings on Fb. Our farm is all about kids and families.   THIS WAY FOR FAMILY FUN!
