Map and Times

Well, it happened again.
Apples picked and gone in one day !

I really like this picture of apples !
I'll leave it here for folks to admire all winter long, as they sip their cider,
eat their pie, and dream of picking apples in 2019.

The weather was kind to us once again September 8th. Lots of lovely visitors, old and new, came, picked apples, and made the ponies veeery happy !

What a strange apple season. But every new experience teaches us something. This year we learned that bees don't go out in the rain, Northern Spy apples don't always taste like Northern Spy apples, and occasionally the Spigold trees give us some yummy apples. Wonder what shall happen next year ... guess we'll know in 11 months.

Eight ponies are wondering if anyone will come in the dark and dusky winter to bring them carrots. Seven are wondering if Itty Biddie shall let them have any. And Little Leonard is still trying to remember, "What is a carrot," since he is still very shy and seldom gets any.

Hope everyone has a lovely winter season.

Feel free to bring LARGE carrots (not to be confused with little fingers) to make the rescued ponies feel loved and happy. (Instructions: fingers at one end of carrot, pony at the other.) Naturally past visitors may come anytime they like, to visit the ponies, even if there are no apples. (If anyone would like their own energy efficient lawn mower / yard ornament, this is where to look: Kentucky Equine Humane Center .)

First time visitors must be sure to bring the map, and look at the virtual tour of Apple Hill Road to be in good spirits when you arrive. (Even many a GPS cannot find us.) From Louisville, Kentucky, take the Gene Snyder Freeway to Old Henry Road (Exit 29). Go east 2 miles. (Old Henry curves left, then jogs right.) Turn right on Apple Hill Road (click for a tour) for 0.7 mile. Where Apple Hill forks, take the middle fork. When you see a red pole gate, open it up and come on back. Continue along the black rail fences. When you think you are lost, you are almost there. When you see the green umbrella, you have arrived.

If you feel lost, call 502-767-5245, leaving neighbors to rest in peace.

During apple season, apples are still $7 for a ~10 pound bag, a smaller bag for $5, 3 apples for a dollar, and $25 for a bushel (4 ~10 pound bags) with special rates for groups. The honey man may stop by with local honey. And there are still kitties and horses who are looking forward to seeing you.

Click the map or here for a larger version you can print. The virtual tour of Apple Hill Road to the orchard will help too. When you're almost there, what you see around you will look like this.
