We have been fooled by early winter weather, but not completely. In anticipation of the temperatures falling into the 20's on Friday night, we were "picking fools" last week and are now offering you Enterprise and Goldrush apples fresh from the tree in 20 pound bags for $20. As you know, these apples are not only great for eating fresh, but also make wonderful pies, crisps, sauces, and apple butter. They both store well so now is the time to stock-up. Quantities are limited. We plan to close for the season on November 18 or as soon as these last beauties are gone.
We will be a the Land of Goshen Farmers' Indoor Market in Edwardsville on Saturday November 17.

Apple Harvest Festival was a Big Success
Thank you for coming out to support Hospice of Southern Illinois and to celebrate the life of Adam Behrhorst last Saturday (10/27) at the Apple Harvest Festival. Over 315 runners/walkers registered for the event and many sponsors supported Hospice through their contributions. The bake sale, caramel apple bar, obstacle course, cider making, Johnny Appleseed and many other activities were a hit. Thank you to all the volunteers who made this event a big success!
Please see the excellent article below from the Edwardsville Intelligencer on July 16, 2018:
Once again this year we are very thankful for the many volunteers who are picking 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 St. Boniface School, EHS Girl Scout Troop #559, Urban Harvest, 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.
