summer turns to fall...
It happens every year - just around the middle of august the sun is lower in the sky and the light changes. The washed out hot days of summer move to beautiful morning and evening light and fall is in the air. Of course - for us - it also means the real beginning of our harvest season. This year the gods have brought us what looks to be a bountiful and beautiful crop. We are thankful.
We are picking Gravensteins, Pink Pearls and Bartlett pears along with a roster of other early summer apples from our collection. You will find us at the Saturday Healdsburg Farmers Market on many weeks this season, as we are trying to stay as close to home as possible. We will be making several appearances at the Ferry Plaza market, but will not be regular like we have for so many years. We will miss all the familiar faces and the fabulous fresh air, but are looking forward to doing a few less hours on the road. Watch for us there on September 22, October 28, and November 10. We expect to be in our regular spot.
Our Stay and Cook options are still available and we are filling in spaces here and there throughout the fall. If you are lucky enough to be able to travel midweek, we can usually fit you in to Just Stay, but dont give up on a weekend visit as we do still have openings. You can check the Overview for a quicker look at what is available.
We hope you will think about planning a future visit with family and friends. We continue to enjoy the bounty of our farm, the beauty of our valley and the gathering place we have created. We are happy to share it all with you and look forward to your next visit. When you are planning your trip, be sure to check out the new av chamber of commerce website: www.andersonvalleychamber.com. They have done a great job of getting a lot of information all in one place.
