For a day of family fun on the farm, join us for our Annual Apple Harvest Open House on Saturday and Sunday. We will be giving orchard tours showing you where those great tasting apples come from and showcasing our location in the hills of Ross County.
There will be horse-drawn wagon rides, apple butter making, maple syrup, food, face painting, apple and cider tasting, barnyard buddies to pet, make-your-own scarecrows and more.
We will start at 9 a.m. on Saturday and go until 6:00 that evening and then again on Sunday from noon until 6:00.
Admission is free but there is a parking charge of $6.00, with the proceeds benefiting Habitat for Humanity. So load up the family and come on out for a relaxing and enjoyable day on the farm.
We will have many different varieties of homegrown apples available including Golden & Red Delicious, Gala, McIntosh, Cortland, Jonathon, Melrose, Jonagold, Winesap, Grimes Golden, Mutsu, Empire, Fuji, and Granny Smith. We also make our own fresh, sweet cider here at Hirsch’s with no additives or preservatives.
For your fall decorating, we will have pumpkins in all sizes, gourds, Indian corn, fodder shocks, straw bales and hardy mums.
Late summer is a great time here at the farm with all the wonderful flavors coming in. Unfortunately, we didn't have any of our own peaches this year (the very cold weather this winter was too much for the buds) but we do have some very good freestone peaches from some family farms in Pennsylvania.
We are picking Bartlett Pears and if you like pears these will make you smile (and run down your arm). There is nothing like a ripe pear right from the tree.
We are also picking Red Raspberries everyday this time of year and hope to have them through September.
