It’s a wrap

The 2020 apple season is over for another year and what a year it was!  During the summer, we anxiously watched while the berry growers maneuvered through the pandemic.  We asked ourselves:  “What sort of changes do we need to make with our pick your own apple system to keep everyone safe?”  Some things didn’t need to change!  People drive into the orchard rather than loading onto a wagon.  With over 10,000 trees and 200 rows of trees spaced 15′ apart, distancing was no problem.  What we hadn’t anticipated was the number of people who came out!  However, it made complete sense.  After being cooped up, people wanted to get out and do something fun but still safe. The fall tradition of apple picking lives on!

So, now that the apple season is a wrap, what’s happening at Archibald’s?  We’ve moved onto another kind of wrap.  Yes, I’m talking Christmas & Holiday gift wrapping.  We’re busy creating gift baskets with everything from wine & sparkling non-alcoholic ciders to preserves, chocolate, munchies & more.  We’ll have this year’s Holiday Selection up shortly on our Gift Baskets page.

This holiday season will look a little different but it’s definitely not on pause.  Time to celebrate and count our blessings everyone!
