This is why I like having the big space in the barn floor.
Some of our apple pickers still prefer to use these traditional wooden ladders for their ease of placement. I’m just replacing a broken rung with a hand shaped one from the scrap bin.
Thanks Ryan. The job took longer than I planned, but they’ll be ready for transport up to the farm after lunch.
Honeycrisp is our major variety, many of which go to export markets. Others include Ambrosia, Royal Gala and picking starts today on a licensed variety we have great hopes for.
We still grow a few traditional northeast varieties like McIntosh and Cortland for the local farm markets.
