DATE & TIME SCHEDULE
PICK-YOUR-OWN PICK-YOUR-OWN HOTLINE: 610-841-1417 It all started on October 11, 2010, Josh had a great idea to expand the existing Corn Maze and Fall Festival by planting dwarf apple trees for a Pick-Your-Own apple orchard. Within a couple of weeks, he had 3,800 trees and supplies ordered for planting in Spring, 2011. At the beginning of December 2010, we started clearing 5 acres of land and tree line until the beginning of snow season. In March we finished clearing the land and preparing to install 2,200 feet of 8’ high deer fence to protect the apples from crop damage. In April, we planted 60 Sugar Maple and Red Sunset Maple trees around the perimeter of the orchard to give it some Autumn color. By the end of April, we planted the apple trees and put white protective sleeves around the trunks. In May, we started constructing a 4 wire trellis support system, tied the trees to the first wire, and removed all the apple blossoms. The irrigation system was installed in June to water them, and pruned and trained the trees by tying the limbs down. Then it was time to just watch them grow! One blossom was missed, so we only had one apple this first year. In 2012, we expanded the orchard to a total of 15 acres, with almost a mile of deer fencing. We planted another 3,000 apple trees. In 2013, we expanded the orchard again for a total of 26 acres, with over a mile and a quarter of deer fencing, and planted another 4,300 trees. In 2014, we plan to add another 4,300 trees and in 2015, add 3,000 more trees. This will bring it to over 18,400 dwarf apple trees on a trellis system, literally creating a wall of apples, for the Pick-Your-Own orchard. In 2013, we planted 2,000 Sweet and Sour Cherry trees, but they won’t be available until 2015, due to the long, cold winter in 2014. We also planted 30,000 Strawberries, to add to our Pick-Your-Own experience. They will be available to pick the month of June, 2014. - Contact Grim’s Greenhouse & Farm Market Inc.
