Greetings from Plains. 

Thanks for checking our website.  

We will NOT have Peaches this year due to the very hard freeze in early March.  We were not in bloom, but the 10 below we had was too cold for the buds. 

Our first fruit will be Gala Apples sometime in the middle of August.  We have a very large set, so I hope they size up ok over the next month.  

We should have Sweet Corn during the first two weeks of August.  The sweet corn looks good at the present time.  We have 4 plantings spread out over about 3 weeks, so we should still have some when the Gala Apples are picking.  If you have had our Sweet corn in the past, you know that is worth waiting for.  

Our late fall apples: Granny Smith, Cameo, Pink Lady and Fuji all are looking very good at this time.  

The "Chinese Apples" are doing great, and I think we will have the best crop we have ever had. 

My cell # for questions:  620-629-1447

We sell DERAN Gearheads, and Raaft Tracks.  Our prices on these are very good.  Call my cell for pricing and info.  620-629-1447.

to the AppleHutch store.
From the southeast corner of Plains, go three miles south on a paved road and one and one-half east. Look for two, dark blue with white top, Harvestores at our farm. You can see these from a distance, and drive to them.

 No one is allowed to enter the orchard without permission each time. Please check in to the store first. Generally, we can't give permission to enter and look at the orchard when we do not have fruit to sell. Thanks for your understanding.
