Hello Loyal Farmers Market Customer,

Fall is officially here!  The air is crisp and fresh, and Kuhn Orchards is the place to go for apples, sweet cider, squash, pumpkins, gourds, and more!

We have an array of apples for you at market!  Honeycrisp and Ambrosia are always popular apples, and we have many other varieties, so try them all and determine your favorite.  We have excellent pie and cooking apples in right now, so pick up a mix of varieties at Market and make a stand-out pie!

It’s time to dress up your porch or front stoop with fall décor!  We are bringing pumpkins and gourds by the bin-full to market!  We have, literally, tons of heirloom pumpkins and gourds and they are all one-of-a-kind!  One of the great things about many of our pumpkins is they are great for decoration, but also spectacular for cooking!

Some of our markets will be concluding for the year at the end of the month, and we would really enjoy seeing you at our markets that continue into November.  Check to see when your market ends for the season, and where you can find Kuhn Orchards produce into November.
