A Sunday Drive

Last Sunday after a drive down to Salem for a few sales, we stopped at our friend's farm stand for some apples and veggies. Pat and Bernie own the stand....THE HITZ FARM. They are such nice people and it's always a kick to stop and visit. Pat was manning the shoppe as Bernie was getting some firewood in back at home. I love all the different kinds of apples. I got some for eating and some for making some apple sauce later this week.

Jim and Pat were enjoying some laughs and just a bit of serious talk about the economy and politics.
Looks like they are having fun, huh? It was wet and chilly but Pat was dressed for the weather.
They make the best apple cider I have ever tasted! Of course, we had to get another jug of that!

They sell filberts and walnuts too. Their walnuts don't look pretty, but they are really good and never bitter.

Lots of apples to choose from! I love apples. Pat and Bernie work so hard and it is a joy to support them. Great prices too.

Hello Linda~ I LOVE visiting places like this. We make an annual trip to Oak Glen to buy fresh picked apples. I really like making apple pies afterwards with my Spartans, McIntosh and our other favorites. Enjoyed seeing your pics,
