The Jonagolds are are ready. This is a variety that is color picked over a period of about 2 weeks so look for the ripe ones! They are yummy!

And the Mishirasu Asian Pears...... speaking of huge!
We are open weekends 10-5.

Hello apple fans, weekend 7 Aug 30, Oct 1
Here we are, the last weekend of August and leaving the month with a real bang! We have lots of new varieties to choose from this weekend as well as plenty of apples still on the trees from last week.
New this week is Liberty, a really, really crunchy
McIntosh cross that is super for eating out of hand.
P.S. Just picked our biggest Mishirasu pear ever here at Jones Creek Farms, 2.96 lbs...... like wow!!!!
And the boys say they are really juicy and sweet!!!
Also for new apples this weekend we have the
Bramley's Seedling known by many as the the
tartest apple in the world...... pucker up baby!
This is the second most popular apple in England. Renowned for its culinary uses and, oh boy, in Ireland its quite popular as a varietal hard cider.
