Hello and thank you to all of our loyal customers. We are currently sad to announce that we are CLOSED FOR THE 2015 SEASON! We were hit by frost this year and Mother Nature did not bless us with a bountiful harvest. We look forward to seeing you in 2016 in the hopes of a great selection of peaches and apples. So sorry about this but we will continue to work hard over the fall and winter in hopes of a blessed 2016 season that we will be able to share with you -
Wow! Not sure how mother nature got so confused but temperatures of 97 degrees and humidity are for summer days not the ones that lead us into fall and apple season :) But we are still producing and working hard in the fields. We are currently harvesting:
The last of all varieties of peaches - so if you still want some please get them by this coming Monday (Sept 16th) as they will be coming to an end.
Elstar Apples : (offspring of Golden Delicious) - tart
Gala Apples: sweet
Still harvesting - Sweet Corn (pick some up today to freeze to get you through the winter - tastes as fresh as the day it was picked!) and Tomatoes (time to can some homemade pasta sauce YUM!)
Stop out and see us!

Hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Labor Day! Here at Heritage Orchards we spent the day picking fresh peaches and apples. We are currently picking Loring Peaches! YUM!
A freestone peach; meaning the flesh comes off the pit easily. A large easy to pick peach, with a sweet flavor. This peach is great for eating, freezing, and canning.
Golden yellow with a bright red blush. Freestone flesh is firm and juicy, bright yellow with red around the pit. Resists browning. Good for canning or freezing
This sweet-spicy apple has a succulent texture and rich taste with a mildly tart flavor. A cross between the Golden Delicious and Albermarle Pippin, this early-season variety is best served fresh.
Warm weather has arrived in Southwest Michigan and the peaches are plentiful on the trees. So we are passing this bounty on to you our dedicated customers - we are currently running a special price on 1/2 bushel (25#) peaches (#1) - only $16.00! This pricing is valid August 20 - August 26, 2013. Get yours today.
Here at Heritage Orchards our apple season has begun. Over our season we will have 19 different varieties of apples including the ever popular HoneyCrisp - we are currently offering Ealry Gold & Sunrise. Today we started harvesting Zestar ( a cousin to the HoneyCrisp) Finally, an early season apple with a crisp, juicy texture, and an exciting zesty flavor with a hint of brown sugar!
