"Pick Your Own Apples"

Apples provide a bit of Vitamin C and Potassium. Apples are a good source of soluble fiber, especially pectin, which helps control insulin levels by slowing the release of sugar into your bloodstream. Pectin also helps reduce cholesterol levels by lowering insulin secretion. The custom of serving fresh fruit, particularly apples, at the end of a meal arose because of the favorable effects on digestion. Apple juice was on of the earliest antidepressants.

 

Woodstock Orchards offers "Pick Your Own Apples" each year right after Labor Day weekend through mid October. "Pick Your Own Apples" are sold by the bag. We offer a 1/2 bushel and peck size bags for you to pick into. Signage at the Orchard will direct you as to where to purchase the bags (retail barn or drive up into the field). Varieties offered in Pick Your Own are: Macintosh, Cortland, Empire, Macoun, Jonagold, Red Delicious, Ida Red, Fuji, Cameo and Russett.

 

 

 


"Pick Your Own Blueberries"

The American blueberry has long been recognized for it's flavor, nutrition and health benefits. Scientists at the US Dept. of Agriculture Human Nutrition Center have found that blueberries rank #1 in antioxidant benefits compared to 40 other fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants help neutralize harmful free radicals that can lead to cancer and other age related diseases. The total antioxidant capacity of blueberries is twice that of spinach and 3 times that of oranges. This extraordinary fruit is rich in pectin a soluble fiber that has been shown to be effective in lowering cholesterol.

Woodstock Orchards offers "Pick Your Own Blueberries" each year beginning mid July through the month of August.
