Bronze Muscadine

Muscadine Grapes–bronze and dark purple

Muscadine Grapes are native to the Southeastern United States. Because of their thick and strong skin, they are well adapted to hot and humid climates where other types of grapes don’t prosper. Muscadines are a local favorite for making wine, jam, and jellies. These grapes are noted for their high nutritional value.

Fresh Apple Cider

We make cider fresh several times a week from apples we grow here using my Dad’s secret blend of apples. No sugar or flavors added. Many customers buy extra jugs of cider to freeze. Just poor off some out of each jug to allow for freezing expansion. For parties and holidays, serve it warm in a punch bowl with cinnamon sticks and thinly-sliced apples floating on top. People will be convinced it is a special punch recipe.

Jonathan and Golden Delicious

Apples

  • Gold Delicious–Just starting to get ripe. These are favorite apple for many customers. Crisp, sweet, and good for eating or cooking.
  • Jonagold–a crisp, flavorful eating apple. Try these if you like Honey Crisp. One of my favorites.
  • Jonathan–a medium size red apple great for eating, making caramel apples, and cooking. Jonathans are my favorite for fried apples and pies because they hold their shape so well. My mother never used anything other than Jonathans for her wonderful applesauce.
  • Gala

    Gala–a sweet eating apple that is a favorite of our customers.

  • Pippin–a very large, green, tart cooking apple. This is an old-fashioned apple that isn’t very pretty, but it wonderful for applesauce and apple butter.

Asian Pears

Crisp and flavorful, best for eating and adding to fruit salads or topping for green salads.
