News & Updates
I am going to be honest with you, lately, I have spent a lot of time thinking about and researching Covid 19. I bet a lot of you have been too. The pandemic has caused a lot of folks to do some forward planning and re-evaluating what normal was, is currently and is going to be in the future.
The one thing we know for sure is that “normal” naturally changes. When I was younger we talked on corded phones that hung on the wall. We called these telephones. The cell phone brought a very positive change to our “normal”. Our paper calendars and to do lists have moved to our phones or computers. Our cars get many more miles per gallon and Facebook replaces waiting for slow arriving snail to bring us news from loved ones.
In the midst of the pandemic many people say they want to get back to normal and I understand that feeling. With what we each perceive as normal comes a level of comfort. We like things that we know. My normal brings me comfort and your normal brings you comfort. We each have different norms in our lives.
Over the years here at Wiard’s Orchards, we have established some norms that we share with you; delicious donuts, yummy caramel apples, refreshing apple cider, crispy sweet fresh apples, fun filled Country Fair days and fright filled Night Terror evenings for our guests. We are busy now planning bring back a touch of “normal” to our customers.
Plan to join us; a lot will have changed by fall but we at Wiard’s Orchards, are planning to keep a lot of our normal in place for you to enjoy!
