Strawberries Really!

Yes, we have Strawberries now. These are Day Neutral or Ever bearing Strawberries. The plants are grown on raised beds of soil covered with plastic. They start producing fruit in the summer and will continue to produce fruit throughout the fall. The berries are sweet and juicy. Some people think they taste better than June Strawberries. Stop by the Farm Stand, purchase a quart or two and decide for yourself. Delicious!

Why is the You Pick Closed?

It is back to school time! We close the You Pick for several weeks the end of August and the beginning of September because it is time to go back to school! Our customers have children and there are many things that need to be done in this time frame. Take a last minute vacation. Finish house projects. Finish yard chores. Buy School clothes. Buy School supplies. Drive the children to college. Attend fall sports practices and games. The list goes on...........

In the mean time if you need fruits and vegetables stop by the Farm Stand. We are open daily.

The You Pick Apples, Raspberries, Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, Tomatoes, Potatoes and Pumpkins will be waiting for your return. See you Saturday September 7th.

Sad day at G and S Orchards.


Our faithful dog Thunder was put down this morning. He was diagnosed with multiple myeloma (bone cancer) a year ago.  Thunder was able to enjoy an additional year on the farm thanks to the wonderful staff at Cornell University and Walworth Animal Hospital. Here he is ready to go for his final ice cream trip. We will miss you Big Dog!
