A Message from Michael Smolak

Halloween is around the corner and the apple season is winding down.

Smolak Farms’ Not-So-Scary Monster Safari Hayrides are delightful and what a great collaboration we have with Acting Out! Theater Company.

Apple crops are cyclical, meaning one year is heavy and the next year lighter.

We had a very heavy crop last year and most of New England had a light crop last year.

This year our crop was very good – but lighter. That means, if we are lucky, our crop should be heavy next year.

Now we are on to Thanksgiving and Christmas – and boy have we got a lot of things planned!

Our pies are the only ones made entirely from scratch from my sister, Eileen’s recipes. No one made them better than her!

Our Christmas postings will be online soon and we have a full schedule of events from our Christmas Tree Lighting to visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus.

This is in addition to Choose- and- Cut Christmas Trees to all the trimmings that come with it.

Oh, just so you get an idea of how this goes, we planted 4,000 Christmas Trees this spring and another 2,500 trees are being planted now.

This is to help make up for losses due to the drought last year.

A Message from Michael Smolak

We made it through Columbus Day Weekend – although there were times we were fairly wet!

This does impact our business significantly when we have rain, so we look forward to next sunny weekend.

I also think of Columbus Day as the hump for the busy season.

Our apple orchards have plenty of apples. We will have pole pickers available this weekend for those hard to reach apples.

You might have to walk a bit further, or stretch a bit higher, but the supply is still quite good.

While there are many apples available, our more popular and rare varieties have been picked totally.

Through the course of the busy weekends, it is difficult to know exactly what varieties are available and the current inventory. We appreciate your patience and understanding during our busy season.

We are excited this year to have Smolak Farms’ Not-So-Scary Monster Safari Hayrides which is geared to an audience that want to be child friendly. The hayrides start this weekend and run to October 29.

So again, thanks for your patience, and look forward to welcoming you back.

And mostly, thanks you for helping us to be a part of the community and keeping our farm viable.

A Message from Michael Smolak

On behalf of myself and the staff of Smolak Farms, would like to thank all of our customers for the patronage and their patience.

We are very lucky to have a very good apple crop and the weather has been by and large favoring us.

As growth has occurred, it has brought on new sets of challenges and we are facing them as we go along.

The September and October months have a whole different life to them and we try to manage it as best as we can. In spite of our best efforts, we do have long lines and some information issues. We appreciate your patience as we try to train our employees as best as we can.

It is not a perfect system, but almost every day, customers and neighbors thank myself and my staff for being here and those words fall on very fertile ears.

It is you, the customer, neighbor, employee, family or friend that has allowed us to be here and it is with humble gratitude that we all thank you, for without you, we also would not be here.

 – Michael Smolak
