Coston Farm News
A great big thanks to everyone who attended the NC Apple Festival and came by the Coston Farm booth or the Apple House. We really appreciate your contribution to the success of the 75th Annual NC Apple Festival. We look forward to seeing you all again throughout the season at the Coston Farm Apple House Gift Shop and Bakery.
Due to hard freezes and a very light crop u-pick apples will not be available on a daily basis for picking this year. In order to allow the later varieties to ripen while on the tree we have closed the orchard during the weekdays.
We will reopen the Pick Your Own Orchard for the weekends and will post which varieties are ready to be picked.
There will be signs in the orchard indicating which varieties are ready to pick.
PLEASE CALL AHEAD FOR SPECIAL VARIETIES
There are still a few Granny Smith apples available in the Pick Your Own Orchard to pick for the weekend.
We had a great response to our first festival at the farm over the Labor Day weekend. Thanks to everyone who came out to buy apples, pick apples, goodies from the bakery and gift shop and visit with the food vendors and crafters. We hope to see you again this fall.
