    Hi John
    None of our apples are red fleshed. Our 40 lb of any fancy organic apple goes for $100, our seconds, great for applesauce goes for $40 per box.

  4. Tom says:

    Yes thats correct

    Good morning, I’m so happy to hear we have organic apples in Virginia! Do you still have apples available and do we need to make an appointment? When are you open for business?

  6. Tom says:

    Hi Melissa, we do not sell or allow others to pick at the farm. Our apples our available at Whole Foods Charlottesville and almost all Whole Foods in the Virginia, Maryland, DC Area. Hope this helps and thanks for the interest.

    Hi, I read the previous comments but it’s not quite clear to me, is it possible to buy apples by the bushel? (I guess it’s a bit too late for this season, but we went through the applesauce faster than expected!) Thanks.

  8. Tom says:

    Hi Robert
    In season I gladly sell by the bushel if we can arrange a good drop off point. I have organic apples between August and December. You can reach me at next season.

  9. John says:

    Are you still open? Do you have anything available?

    Dear Sweet Rose, did you know apples are related to roses? The scent & taste are like crisp crunchy roses. Loving the crimson crisp, can’t wait for the wine crisp!
