About the event
Hurricane Ian has recently been classified as Category 4 but by the time it reaches Virginia, it could be severe rain and very windy weather. Why does this matter? Well, we could lose a lot of Golden Delicious apples and some of the older trees.
That’s where YOU come in - we need “all hands on deck” and what better way to do that in a pinch than to reach out to our amazing community?!
If you can, please consider coming to help us at the Orchard.
We will be hosting “Hurricane Harvest Days” Thursday and Friday to help save some of the trees and apples in the Orchard. With this unexpected storm, we would love to have volunteers help us with apple picking whenever you can. O
Here, on our website you’ll find hourly slots available from 8:00am to 5:00pm - please RSVP for the time that works best for your schedule.
For those of you that can help us, we will be giving you a BIG “thank you” by gifting you some of the Golden Delicious apples you’ll be helping us save, our classic Sweet Cider, AND Apple Cider Doughnuts.
*Apple picking can be a bit heavy, please make sure you are comfortable carrying 30-50lbs.
*We'll be out in the Orchard! The ground will be a little uneven and of course as you'd be outside, we highly recommend comfrotable, close-toed shoes.
