Lately I’ve Been Thinking a Lot About Apples, Pumpkins and Change

Lately I have been thinking a lot about change; we can go looking for change or sit perfectly still and wait for change to find us, either way, things change, people change and seasons change.  The lovely apple blossoms of spring have turned into delicious apples here in Michigan where apple orchards are as common as apple pie.  The pumpkins have changed from green to jack o lantern orange and seem to be waiting patiently to be turned into works of art.  The beauty of summer is giving way to autumn and all that autumn brings with it; the days are a bit cooler and the trees are touched with reds and yellows, not yet peaked in color, yet definitely changing.

One thing that has changed a lot over the years and yet remains the same is Wiard’s Orchards and Country Fair in Ypsilanti, MI.  We are an entertainment venue providing a wide variety of entertainment to a broad market of people of all ages, from toddlers to seniors and yet, we are still a family owned and operated business growing apples, pressing cider and making donuts the way we have since 1837.  Change can be good, especially when it is held solid in the clutches of tradition and stability.  Holding tight to some family traditions and moving forward with change we endeavor to meet the needs and expectations of our ever-changing community.  Looking for a change of pace?  Check out Wiard’s Orchards this weekend!
