Another bountiful apple harvest here at Quarry Hill Orchards. Summer rains and a diligent thinning program orchestrated by 2nd Generation Farmer Bill Gammie is giving us great size on the fruit as well. Our crew leaders Pancho and Lou are bringing in regular wagon loads from the orcahrd to the barnyard. Pick your own is in full swing and our orchard market is stocked with local veggies and artisan goods.
On Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 10 and 11, Branch 103 of the Early Days Gas Engine and Tractor Association will host the annual Lake Erie Antique Power Tractor Show Regional Meeting. Amid the roars and sounds of gears turning, you can see tractors, buzz saws, burr mills, hit and miss engines, a corn sheller, blacksmith, handmade brooms, rug weaving and classic cars. A kiddie tractor pull is 2 p.m. on Saturday.
Look for the orchard’s First Annual Apple Peak Gathering starting 9 a.m. on Oct. 17 with coffee, apple fritters, pies and pumpkin muffins. Then, throughout the day, lunch from catering company Cleveland Vegan and StrEat Mobile Bistro food truck, pick-your-own apples, live radio broadcast, yoga in the orchard (discount-priced in advance), live music, family photos (with reservations) and a chance to hike the nearby old growth forest of Edison Woods Metropark of Erie County.
