Fall is a great time on our real working farm!

We are busy all of the time at G and S Orchards but Fall is when we really ramp it up. We have so many things going on that keep us busy during the summer: You Pick, CSA, Farm Stand, Fairport Farmers Market that is seems like we can't add one more thing but this is the main season for Pear, Pumpkin and Apple picking. We have acres and acres of picking that needs to be done in a very short window of time. The days will get shorter and the weather will deteriorate so it is a rush to beat mother natures clock. You can come out and pick your own on weekends or stop at the Farm Stand and purchase already picked produce grown right here every day of the week. We look forward to seeing you soon!

You Pick - be ready at a moments notice!

This season may be a struggle for those who intend to You Pick. The rainy weather causes challenges with fruit picking. We will try to be open every day but if it is raining we can not.

Why not? Fruit should not be picked when it is wet. It is tender so it crushes plus it will not keep.

Have an action plan. Watch the weather forecast, be ready when it breaks, pile in the car, gear in hand and hit the fields. Refrigerate and process your fruit as soon as you are able.

We will have a good supply of already picked fruit on the Farm Stand. If you need large quantities contact us to place an order. As always we appreciate your patronage.

The old timers have a saying "a dry year will scare you but a wet year will kill you".
