*Apples labled as "tart" are not technically ready. However for those looking for a sour apple are more than welcome to pick their own. We will not pick these apples until we feel comfortable with the flavor.

About the crop (2019)

This year we had a late spring and some odd weather. Due to the late spring, we are a few days to about a week behind a normal schedule. Here at Hillside, we like to make sure that the apples we pick have the best flavor before we pick them and try not to rush mother nature. We are starting to get more normal fall like days and colder nights which will bring on the color and flavor for the apples.
