The Community Story
This event started twenty-three years ago as our way of saying thank you to our loyal customers and to provide a special, free event for the neighborhood and community of which we have been a part for more than a century. This year is no exception.

Along the path to the tasting area, take a moment to look at the special display that highlights the hundreds of school and community projects that we participate and help support annually. We are proud of our support in the community, and of our community partners. We are happy to share some of the story with you.

Apples & Pears
Apples and PearsOver fifty varieties to taste this year, and many varieties for sale by the pound at traditionally low, Apple Tasting prices. The tasting area is open all six days, sponsored again this year by Sun Gro. A special thank you to Monrovia Nursery, for supplying the giant refrigerator truck to keep all the produce crisp and fresh! When we know the line up, we will post the tasting list in the sidebar.
