Jenkins Orchard 2012

Gala Apples on display at Jenkins Orchard.
The crop is coming in earlier this year due to the 
weather. The Derecho 2012 reduced crop totals
by about 30% this year. Black Twig Apples, a local
favorite, should be in soon. Jenkins is always a great
trip while you visit Culpeper.
