The first apples are blooming on Carter Mountain! Some of the early varieties are starting to show pink, and a few have actually opened up in the past couple of days. Another sure sign of spring!
We've put bee hives in the orchard so that the apples can pollinate. There aren't enough natural bees here, so we have to rent the bees! The bees will stay in the orchard for about 10 days to 2 weeks, and hopefully they will do their job and a good crop of apples will set.
We are busy getting the Country Store, Wine Shop, and Bakery ready for business. We're cleaning, painting, and re-stocking! Don't forget, we will be open on weekends (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays) beginning NEXT Friday, April 17th! We'll be open from 10-5, so come by to see the apples in bloom, taste the Carter Mountain Wine, browse in Country Store, and grab a pie and some donuts!
