it would be interesting to have it made intentionally that way, tho.

vb, what orchard do you go to? please don't say masker.

if you're open to suggestions and since you know the area, try the orchard in marlboro that i've mentioned, called weed orchards. great place and very nice proprietors.
Well, I was going to say Masker's...but now I want to know why I shouldn't. Tell me more about the other place. PM if you prefer. I'm the type of lady that is always open to suggestions.

masker's is overrun with loud, annoying, obnoxious people, mostly from the city and lawn guyland. (no offense intended of course. it's just that people from north jersey are superior beings... )

they think a trip to the country is going to mahwah or suffern. they litter everywhere and swear out their windows at each other when there's gridlock in the orchard. fun, fun, fun.

i recommend "weed orchards", right near the winery you're going to in marlboro. you know what the views are like up there, and it's just far enough away to keep it much more tranquil and quiet. here's the site: http://www.weedorchards.com/

BuckyTom, that is a magnificent orchard! The view is so serene and I can imagine the crisp air and the smell of the apples.

hb, it is really beautiful. dw and i stumbled upon the place one fall sunday, just wandering around upstate ny, looking for wineries and orchards. it's become a favourite stop as we go there for summer fruit and veggie picking, as well as apples and pumpkins in the fall.

that was back when gas was a buck a gallon.
now i wander in my backyard. the tire tracks are ruining my lawn...

You couldn't have hit the nail more on the head- living in Suffern and in a county with several orchards- we never even attempt to visit any of them-we did go to weeds a number of years ago and loved it- we also visited Soon's in Middletown(I think) and enjoyed that as well but, not the traffic.Because of the "tourist" element we forego the orchards and frequent DePiero's in Montvale at the crack of dawn for fresh produce-certainly not as much fun as actually visiting a working orchard.Hmmm starting to miss the days of Tice and Van Riper farms-sorry- I digress!!!

Vera- no matter where you go and what you decide to take with you- I wish you beautiful weather and a peaceful relaxing day!!!

Love and energy to you both, VIcki

i miss tice's and van riper's too, vicki. it was an annual stop for really good cider and pumpkin pies.
years ago, they used to sell unpasteurized cider.
a forgotten jug placed in the back of the fridge for a few weeks developed a nice kick.

vb, here's a few pics from weed orchards last fall, and one from this summer:

Great pics BT.
I also have fond memories of fighting off the bees at the spigots for apple cider at Tice's.Now I will have to make a run to The Orchard's of Concklin in Pomona for fresh cider-that will make the male folk here very happy!!!!
love and energy, Vicki
