Ditmars Orchard & Vineyard
All of our Unique Goodies
Thurs- Sat 10-6
The good news: we are looking forward to seeing you again this season, we are open tomorrow 10-6 and Sunday 11-5- next week we will have our summer hours Thurs-Sat 10-6 and Sunday 11-5.
The not so good news we overestimated mother natures desire to provide the sunshine and heat that the strawberries needed to grow by this weekend- so the berry picking will be thin this weekend; there is going to be a bountiful crop they are just slow to ripen!
Our Orchard Café will be open with a limited menu with some new eats! Our wine will be available also- we have some new flight sampling trays that we will be using- as always we can sell by the glass and bottle and don’t forget our wine slushies made this time with our Tomorrows Promise- Brianna and strawberry blend!
The Strawberries are here! And so is our opening for the season!
Its been a long winter and there's been a lot of things going on but there's nothing like a fresh, ripe strawberry to make things better.
We'll be open starting this Saturday May 30th for the year. Initially our hours will be Thursday thru Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 11-5.
Strawberries will be for sale in the store or buy u-pick. A phone call is probably a good idea as they tend to go fast or if you want a large quantity.
We are conscious of the issues raised by the corona virus so we'll be limiting the number of customers in the store at any one time and asking that you observe social distancing. However, we'll also have a checkout outside to make things more convenient.
We'll also be open for wine and hard cider sales and will have a limited menu in the kitchen. The covered veranda, deck and canopies will be open for seating as well as the picnic tables. To cut down on the congestion inside, we'll be offering sample trays at a low cost to take and enjoy outside.
It's a very exciting time at the orchard: in addition to the strawberries ripening, the apples, peaches and cherries are setting on, the garden has been planted, and the sunflowers are emerging! And, within the next two weeks the pumpkin patch will be planted along with the mums! We're looking forward to seeing you all again and enjoying the health benefits the sunshine and wide open spaces the orchard provides!
Take care, see you soon.
