The end of harvest season is here! This morning we visited Tigchelaar Orchards to glean the apples that were left on their trees. Three of us worked for three hours and easily harvested 700 lbs of beautiful Gala and Mutsu (I think?!) apples from the well kept apple trees. Another 300 lbs of juicy apples had already been harvested by the owners of the orchard, John and Claire. We loaded them all into our truck, and dropped them off at Refresh Food for Life who will distribute them to the community.
Thank you very much to the Tigchelaar’s for allowing us to glean at your orchard. We love your orchard, especially your farm stand serving fresh brewed Direct Trade Coffee!
