I'd walk down the hill to Gram Hazel's house many a weekend. She always had a 'job' my brother and I could make a little money at... pulling goldenrod in the hay field or swatting flies in the barn for a penny a piece. There were plenty of both! We sorted coins or stamps, practiced our states on a wood puzzle or peddled
the player piano "Moon River wider than a mile...."
But baking was my favorite thing to do. You learn a lot when your "Gram" is so patient and willing to let you try anything from pies to pastries, from cakes to cornbread. The recipes I 'follow' have been passed down from her kitchen as well as aunts, friends, the ladies at the "Grange" and especially my mom.
For now I am baking...apple pies, pumpkin pies, apple nut cake (you'll LOVE it!) and granola.
Pies - $15.00 'Apple Can' cake - $15.00
These are all available this winter, made to order. Text / email or give me a call.
Canned Goods & Maple Syrup
My mom was one the outstanding gardeners in the area, if not the state. Her flowers garden are unparalleled. Her advice and guidance I still use daily. Michelle and I do the job in the vegetable
garden, watering, weeding, picking on time... the harvest has been awesome. Still going strong!
We processed 30+ jars of savory Pickles, 30+ jars of delicious Pasta sauce and dozen jars of
Beets. It sounds like a lot, but we eat them every day with every meal (usually
not breakfast...). Two dear family members visited recently and consumed a reported three jars
in a matter of hours! They're all out for purchase at the HHO Farm Stand in Turner as well as
jarred apple sauce made from those beautiful Hazel Hill Orchard apples. Samples will be
available of course...warning, you'll be hooked. Prices TBD next fall.
In addition to canned products, maple syrup, made in our wonderful Sap Shed in Wayne is at
the stand. Who doesn't love hot waffles dripping with sweet maple syrup and juicy blueberries.
Got your attention yet...Don't miss the springtime "Blossom Brunch"!

Applesauce 32oz - $7 / 16oz - $5
Apple Butter 8oz & Canned Goods 16oz - $6
Boxes and Baskets
Once you and your family have been out to Hazel Hill Orchard for an afternoon, I am confident you'll
be back. The pleasure, excitement and pride your children will feel harvesting their very own
tree will seal the deal. If you're going to make this a truly authentic experience,
harkening back to days gone by...a couple of rugged traditional boxes
and/or baskets to harvest those apples into, are a must!
These boxes are milled locally and assembled right here on the farm. They bring me back to my
childhood. Believe me I've handled 1000's of these, and remember the satisfying site
of thirty or more bushels of apples, lined up under the old standard trees,
ready to be collected and hauled back to the storage. Buy a beautiful
box or basket, own a piece of apple history.
