Farm Market

Today we went 
to a local farm we hadn't been to before
The Apple Country Farm Market

   From their website                          
 At ACFM, the apple harvest season                                                                                                                            begins in early September and runs                                                                                                                                                            
through November. In addition to the large                                                                                                             variety of apples we offer, 

ACFM also produces                                                                           
 fresh cider from apples that are smaller, poorly colored,                                                                                               and less eye-appealing. To enhance the flavor                                                                                                                  of our cider, a special blend of apples is used.                                                                                                                All apples are washed thoroughly                                                                                                                              before being ground and pressed                                                                                                                                       to produce an all-natural product.                                                                                                                                      No preservatives are added.

Here at Apple Country Farm Market,     
  we maintain our own bee hives to  produce for you                                                                                                  the freshest honey possible. Our available  
     honey  varieties change seasonally                                                                                                                                             from apple blossom honey to pumpkin  honey.

Jams, Jellies and More…

           On the main floor of ACFM’s Country Store,  visitors                                                                                will find a large variety of delicious jams, jellies, preserves,                                                                                   apple  butter, pumpkin butter, relishes, salad dressings,                                                                                      Ohio syrups, Amish  noodles, and sauces.

The best part of the trip
Apple Cider Slushie $1.25


  1. The painted pumpkins are SO FUN! And I now want an Apple Cider Slushie...that sounds GOOD! I wonder if I can figure out how to use our local cider residing in my fridge to make my own slushie....hmmmm. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Love farmers markets,and this looks like a great one.

  3. What a fun place to go, looks like entertainment for the whole family!
    Btw, the peanut pumpkin looks like something
    from Grey's Anatomy last week!
    Wish we were closer so we could visit!

  4. Jo, You two always find the most interesting places to visit. I always liked to pick my pumpkins at a farm- we used to go up to Troy's Fulton Farm. I always bought my 12 egg angel food cakes there. Have to catch up w/all you've been up to. Off to read.....

  5. I've never had an apple cider slushie before. I bet it was goooood! Looks like a really fun place to visit!

  6. What a fun place. I LOVE fresh apple cider. Very cute pumpkins.


  7. Thanks for the cyber tour. My favorite is the peanut pumpkin.
