“We felt it was time to refresh and update the store to enhance the shopping experience for our customers – they tell us they liked to be ‘wowed!’ I guarantee that with this new design and activities we’re planning, they will be! We’re a Finger Lakes destination,” commented Brian Nicholson, third-generation owner and President of Red Jacket Orchards.
The new Farm Store is now selling Red Jacket’s own summer fruits: blueberries, raspberries, cherries, plums and its renowned apricots. Daily features are planned on fruits and locally foraged produce. Continue to watch the store develop and add even more products leading up to the grand opening in late September, when a gala event is being planned.

“We’re proud to be part of this foodie town, and excited to have the opportunity to participate and enhance the destination!” adds Tracey Dello Stritto, the new Direct to Consumer Manager for Red Jacket who will be managing the retail store.
