Apple Picking & More! at Pennings Farm

Hello Everyone,

It's not too late for apple picking!  They've got: Red Delicious, Ida Red, Braeburn and may have some Fugi and others...
Aside from apples, Pennings has: a lovely market selling pumpkins, fresh produce, apple pies, cider, Cider Donuts, other baked goods and goodies.
They also have a cafe, bar, ice cream stand, kettle corn and hot dog stand, outdoor farm animals, Live music and more...

Where to Park & Meet:
We will meet in-front of the market entrance. They will not let you park at the market if you tell them you're going to the orchard. Please park at the Shop Rite parking lot across the street on Rt. 94 on the corner of Warwick Turnpike.  We can have lunch together, then head up to the orchard. Either Faith or myself will be standing in-front of the market entrance. To reach Faith #[masked]-2715. Melanie will be wearing a purple fleece jacket.

Apple Picking Price:
$25 for 1/2 bushel (22lbs.) Minimum 1 bag per car. We will be walking up and therefore only have to buy a bag per 2-4 people if you'd like to split up the price and share a bushel. Do not bring bags with you to the orchard! After, when we return to the market, we can split the bags up. If they catch you bringing your own bags and splitting up while we're apple picking, they will kick you out. I'll have bags in my car we can use.

Prior to Apple Picking: I'll be hosting another meetup event at 11:30am (3min. down the road) with my other group: http://www.meetup.com/THE-COMMUNITY-OF-HEALING/
at Pacem In Terris. It's a sculpture garden/sancturay, musem and meditation room. You are more then welcome to join us. Please RSVP on that group. If you're not already a member, please join us! :-)

If you are comfortable with the idea of carpooling, please feel free to contact those you see on the RSVP in your area or on the way.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
Cheers,
Melanie & Faith

    Great group, weather, plenty of apples, and donuts. What more could you ask for?

    By the way, for those that pointed out the yellow berries on the ground that look like tiny yellow tomatoes that had needle-like thorns on the stem, I looked it up in my book and I'm 99.9% possitive it's Horse Nettle. I was right, the berries are poisonous to eat. It's a weed that belongs to the nightshade family.

    Hello'

    I work till 2 on Saturdays in central Jersey-if time allows I'd drive up to join up if you are doing something afterward. Can you let me know if anything is planned? If not I'll try next event.

    Thanks,
    Keith

      Hi Keith, I imagine the group will still be there till at least 3:30pm. Not sure if it will be worth your time though. I'd text Faith when you get done with work. :)
