On the morning of June 29, the apple trees here were loaded with a promising crop. That afternoon, the derecho left most scattered across the grounds of the farm sanctuary.
So as to keep a fair share of the windfall for human consumption (and to keep Beatrice the pygmy pot-bellied pig from gaining more than the 15 pounds she quickly added from chowing on little green apples) we put up a batch of green apple jelly.
If you happen to be at the Bluffton Farmer’s Market tomorrow morning, stop by and pick up a jar of this tangy goodness. We’ll also have other items and jellies of the season, including wood violet, chocolate mint and dandelion. All proceeds benefit the work we do here on the Quarry Farm.

If ya have any mountain ash trees on the farm the berries make great wine!
Used to. The introduction of emerald ash borer took care of that opportunity.
This sounds really appealing, except I won’t be in the area. Is that the only location you sell these items?
We sell everything through this website, although I don’t have the shopping carts set up. If you are interested, jelly is $3.50 per jar plus shipping. Just send a mailing address.
