$7 for $14 Worth of Homegrown Peaches and Apples
Visitors can stock up on 10 different varieties of handpicked and washed apples ($1.59/pound or $16/half-bushel) during late summer to fall. Varietals include tart, grass-green granny smiths and dulcet, marbled fujis. Summer’s juiciest peaches ($1.99/pound or $14/peck) beg to be included in pies and cobblers.
For nearly a century, five generations of Ikenberry farmers have worked among the crooked arms of apple trees and listened to the rustle of branches heavy with sunset-hued peaches. Family members harvest 10 varieties of apples and seven types of peaches at the peak of their freshness, carefully inspecting and washing fruit before displaying them in the shop. Crimson and bottle green mix in the marbled skin of fuji apples, and granny smiths crunch sharply. Alongside the bushels of in-season produce, still fresh with dew and the cologne of scarecrows, light dances off jars brimming with jams, pickled vegetables steeping in brine, and old-fashioned apple butter crafted inside a copper kettle. As the air grows cooler and the last leaves whisper on the trees, the farm celebrates another year’s harvest with a weekend festival with samples of all of the apple’s spiced and preserved permutations.:m]]
