Apparently, they are retiring. Orders need to be in by April 10th, 2015.

This is a good place to get growies, esp. for colder climates. Paul has mentioned them in podcasts, and they are recommended in a bunch of posts here in the forums.

Here is their website (yeah, I know, it doesn't look right, but it is):

Looks like they are sold out already.

I was so sad when I heard this! I was living near them when I was learning to farm, and what an awesome family and business...they will be missed.

Looks like they are passing it on to new ownership and will be offering various apples for 2016. Nice that the nursery will live on.

As soon as I get more planting space I will be supporting the new management. I want this one to succeed. Too many important cultivars are at stake to let the business be lost!

Yes. They are the "Go-to" nursery for those living in zones 3-4.

Through the years, I have heard nothing but praise for them.
Hopefully, the new owners keep up the good work.
