The 2017 harvest season is about to begin. It is with heavy hearts that we are announcing that we are retiring and this will be our final season as More Than Delicious Orchard.

During the weeks of bloom, the weather was cold and rainy, and we had very poor pollination. Also, there were two light frosts during bloom. Depending on the variety of apple or pear, we have either a fair crop or a very poor crop.

We will be open on Labor Day, September 4, noon to 4:00 p.m. and thereafter we will be open only Sunday afternoons in September and until mid-October, 12 – 4 p.m.

We will be selling only in the sales room—u-pick will not be available. We want to encourage you to stop by and say “hello” and “good-bye”. If you want to come out picking, we encourage you to visit one of our nearby neighbor orchards after you have told us good-bye.
