We use a method called “eco apples” which is an advanced IPM (integrated pest management) process
We focus our attention on making the trees as healthy as possible so that the tree is more disease resistant. We do this with nutrients to the soil and water; nutrients like, fish and seaweed. We also do extensive pheromone trapping to determine when there is economic damage which requires spraying (and only then).There is a trade off between growing the prettiest and healthiest apple. There are really only 5 bugs that we are concerned with that can do significant crop damage. Some bugs are "beneficial" because they eat bugs that can cause a problem. IPM uses many resources to monitor the health and condition of the apples which includes pesticides but only when that is the best option for the crop and only the right chemical under the right conditions is used. Our apples are washed in an antibacterial soap and we use no wax. While organic does limit the use of some chemicals, it still uses chemicals on a frequent or regular basis only the types of chemicals are restricted to be called organic. We believe you can get a healthy and pretty apple with IPM growing techniques. If you have any questions about the techniques or process please let us discuss them with you. We go to school every winter to stay up to date on the latest methods, rules, and products so that we can produce the best apples for you.

Unlimited Our newest red wine is finally ready. It took longer because the French oak required more aging time. Bold, deep intense, very dry.
Chocolate Strawberry - Love Similar to our regular strawberry wine with a subtle taste of chocolate and less sweet.
Sexy Legs is a very sweet red Marquette win. A definite dessert or solo sipper.
J's Reserve is our new dry red. This is our best red; smooth, luscious, bold, sublime. We named this wine because it lives up to being our very best.
New Hard Cider
We crafted 3 hard apple ciders for 2017. The ciders are all natural with a pure apple taste, one with sirracha and one with a cinnamon spice (same flavor as last year) all made from our estate grown apples. They come in a 12 ounce or 750 ML bottle.
