“An apple in the hand …

Tow weeks ago Russell and Laura from Upper Hutt spend a day on our orchard helping with the harvest of this new season's apples. He Wrote a little piece for our newsletter:

"Yesterday my wife Laura and I discovered that “an apple (um … many apples, in this case) in the hand, … is worth many days in the office”. We had the privilege of working with Frank and the crew picking apples. Doing that was so much better than spending ‘a day in the office’ or, well, pretty much anything else. The day was perfect, with the sun streaming down on us. Our fellow workers did everything they could to get us started smoothly in the work and were nice! nice! nice! to be with and work with. We very much enjoyed getting to know the people who produce our weekly fruit and veg. We worked as hard as we could and it was nice to feel that we had made a contribution too, to the process.

So … like Arnie “We’ll be back!  Thank you Frank, Albert, Joel and Matt!”

and a big thank you Russell and Laura.

Coming Up: Farm Day and PYO Apples this Sunday (weather permitting)

If you are keen to find out for yourselves where your fresh healthy fruit and vege are coming from, how they are grown, where they are packed and by whom than you are very welcome this Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm on our Masterton orchard and market garden. You can find us on 38 Te Ore Ore Bideford Road at the North east side of Masterton (towards Riversdale, but turn left just outside Masterton). There are no great toilet facilities, so use the ones at Henley Lake before you come (if neccesary).
