Greetings from Plains. 

We started on the CAMEO APPLES on Tuesday September 23.  We have a somewhat limited supply as this is the first year in production.  The quality is very good.  The price will be 75 cents per pound. We should have these thru at least Tuesday, September 30.

 We are still picking  nice Chinese Apples.  The price is 75 cents per pound. Tuesday September 30 will probably be our last day to pick, as the last ones are starting to drop on the ground.  We have sold many pounds of these over the last 3 weeks.  

We started picking our PEARS on Thursday Sept 11.  The pears are very good quality, and we have a good supply.  These need to be picked over the next 7 days or so.  The price on the pears will be 75 cents per pound. Our hours for the next 10 days:



TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 30, 9am to 7pm

THURSDAY OCTOBER 2, 9am to 7pm

SATURDAY OCTOBER 4, 9am to 4pm


After looking at our Honeycrisp today, they have been mostly picked over.  For the rest of the season, the Honeycrisp will be FREE 

If you would like some good apples to make applesauce with,  all of the overripe GALA are FREE with the purchase of other fruit.  


Our late fall apples: Granny Smith,  Pink Lady and Fuji all are looking very good at this time.  My guess is that we might open on the last apples either Oct 9 or 11.  Check for further updates.

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.
