"THANK YOU" to all the friends, families, and school, church and civic groups who came out again this year to enjoy the taste of a crisp, fresh apple. And to the many new guests who found the orchard this year, thank you for making the time to visit with us.
This time of year as the sun sets behind the schoolhouse and I walk the orchard in the quiet twilight, I wish that I could have captured in a jar like appl...e butter the sounds of laughter, the crisp crunch of an apple and the smiles of the season. Thank you for the memories that we will savor through the winter.
My long two-pointed ladder's sticking through a tree
Toward heaven still,
And there's a barrel we didn't fill
Beside it, and there may be two or three
Apples we didn't pick upon some bough
But we are done with apple-picking now.
Wishing you all Happy Holidays...for "we are done with apple-picking now" but are looking forward to seeing you and your family again next year!
Once again this year we are very thankful for the many volunteers who picked thousands of pounds of apples at Liberty Apple Orchard to serve children and families at regional food banks. Many church and civic groups volunteered this fall, including Trinity Lutheran 8th grade, EHS Girl Scout Troop #559, Urban Harvest, Mt. Joy Baptist Church, Love the Lou and GlenEd Food Pantry. These volunteers exemplify the words of Mother Teresa: "We cannot do great things, only small things with great love."
Liberty Apple Orchard is conveniently located near Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Troy and Highland, yet still situated in a rural setting. The orchard is well mowed, easily accessible from our drive and ideal for photos of your family. Opened only a few years ago, the trees are small so even the littlest of hands can reach the fruit.
Liberty Apple Orchard also offers opportunities for:
In addition to providing a local U-Pick experience, look for us at the Land of Goshen Farmers' Market in Edwardsville on Saturday mornings.
