seriously beautiful fall weather . . .
We are deep into harvest - in fact we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. 2018 marks the most bountiful, most beautiful and best tasting apples we have had in years. That is all great, and we are thankful, but getting it all done is an almost impossible task. We face each day, hopeful that we can fit it all in. We cant - but we wake up and do it again day after day. The weather is a huge help. Crisp nights and just enough sun during the day to warm things up. By the time we peel off our jackets it is time to put them on again.
We are into the late season fruit now. These are the apples you want to stock up on and put away in the coldest place you can find. There wont be another fresh crop from our neck of the woods until next July. We have a few more markets where you can find us if you cant make the trip to the farm. Saturday October 27 you will find Rita and Jerzy in San Francisco at our regular spot behind the Ferry building. After that we have only one visit on November 17th. You will be able to find us in Healdsburg at the Saturday market on November 10th for sure. After that we will have to see if we have anything left to sell.
We are winding up our Stay and Cook season. November 7th we have a few spots left. We have made our first foray into 2019 and put some Stay and Cook weekends on the calendar. We will work out the midweek dates in the next few weeks. If you have a group of at least 6, give us a call and we can find a mutual date to accommodate you. At this point we are mostly guessing which weekends might be best for cooking. Feel welcome to suggest a weekend that works for you and we might be able to juggle things around on our calendar. In the meantime you hope you will consider a nice quiet winter retreat in one of our cottages. The valley will be quiet and wintery and you can settle into a nice slow pace. 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 and you should be able to figure out what everyone is doing about winter hours.
