2019 Harvest Season


Columbus Day Special Hours:  We will be open on Columbus Day, Monday, October 14, 2019 from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  We will have 6 varieties of Asian Pears available.  We also have wine available for sale.

Update on Pears:  (October 9, 2019) Right now, we are fresh-picking Olympic and Shin Li.  We will be picking Atago and Shinko next week.  We are done fresh-picking Hosui and Shinseiki.  We have stored Hosui and Shinseiki in our walk-in cooler.  Hosui will still be available in our market until end of November, or until our supply lasts.  Shinseiki will still be available in our market until January, or until our supply lasts.
  • Shin Li has medium smooth, yellowish green skin with russet spots. The firm white flesh is extremely flavorful and has a sweet and spicy, cinnamon-like aroma. Large fruits like slightly flattened spheres. Fruit ripens in early to mid-October and keeps three to four months.
  • Olympic (Korean Giant)  Very large (16-32 oz.), attractive orange-brown russet, round pear.  Flesh is firm, crisp and juicy sweet.  One of the best tasting, late ripening varieties.  Ripens late October, early November.  Storage life is 8-9 months.
  • Hosui is a large to medium asian pear with a crisp, juicy off-white flesh.  Skin has an excellent golden brown russeting.
  • Shinseiki, or New Century, is a large to medium fruit with firm, white crisp flesh and a sweet juicy flavor.  Skin is yellow-green to pale yellow with small lenticels.
Update on Apples: (September 17th, 2019)  Unfortunately, we had a very wet spring this year.  Our apple trees suffered as a result.  Unlike other orchards, we do not bring in fruit from other farms, so we will not have apples for sale this year.

Update on Grapes:  We have some pre-picked concord grapes available.  End of season special on Concord grape.  Get the large clamshell (2 quart+) for $10.  

Wine Update:  (October 8, 2019)  Our popular "Black Shadow" wine is back in stock.  Also, we are happy to announce the release of our new dry white wine, "Stony Hill White".  We are currently out of stock of our semi-sweet white wine, "Autumn Wish" and our Pear Cyser.  Our dry red, "The New Black" is running low on stock.  We hope to bottle the next barrel soon.

Weymouth Winery's "The New Black" was featured at the Ohio State Fair this year. The New Black was designated by the State of Ohio with the OQW Designation (Ohio Quality Wine). Wine must be made from locally grown, Ohio grapes, and be of superior quality, in order to get this designation.

    Frequently Asked Questions:


    Q: Do you have pick-your-own apples? 

    A: We do not open our orchard for unsupervised picking.  We do offer a Pear Hunt, which is a supervised tour of the orchard where the owner or an employee will tour you through our well-kept farm.  During this tour, we will educate you about the different varieties we offer, how to properly pick an Asian Pear without damaging the tree, assist you with photo opportunities, and hunt for the best pears in the orchard.  There is an additional charge of $5 per person, and the session is limited to 30 minutes.  The Pear Hunt is available only on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings, by appointment.  Call 216-534-9600 and leave a detailed message about your group size, when you would like to come, and the best way to contact you back.


    Q: Do you have apple cider?

    A: We do not offer apple cider.


    Q: Can we pick up apples off the ground?

    A: No, you cannot.  And no, we do not.


    Q: Can we come and have a glass of wine and some food?

    A: We only offer 1/2 oz. wine samples and bottle purchases during our normal hours.  We don't offer sit down service, and we are not a restaurant nor a bar.  We are a farm, and our focus is award-winning estate wine which you can purchase and take with you to enjoy or gift to someone special.  We can ship our wine with some restrictions.  We do have special ticketed events where we sit down, pour our wine into glass, and showcase our craft.  We post these events from time to time on our website and our Facebook page.

    Q: When does your season end?

    A: Grape picking ends at the end of September.  Apple and Pear season ends end of October.  We store apples and pears which we sell on Thursday, Friday and Saturday throughout the winter until our supply runs out.  We usually run out sometime in February.
