"It's not what we SAY about our blessings, but how we USE them, is the true meaning of our Thanksgiving." Here at Detering Orchards we are beyond blessed to be able to provide fresh goods for you guys, our wonderful customers. Today we had a very special opportunity to use that blessing. An elderly gentleman visited us at the farm today to purchase some apples to try and make himself a pie for his first Thanksgiving without his wife of many years. As he had just finished checking out, he realized he forgot to sample our fresh apple cider. After sampling it, he was eager to purchase a half gallon to enjoy with his Thanksgiving meal. So, he went on to grab his half gallon of cider and bring it the check stand and handed the checker his card to run again. Unfortunately, the card was declined the second time. Very disappointed, he went to put the cider back and began to apologize for his card declining. Of course we were not going to let him leave without his half gallon of apple cider. We told him that due to the holidays, the cider was on us and that we couldn't allow to him to have his Thanksgiving without fresh apple cider. He immediately began grinning ear to ear while insisting that we didn't need to do that. We assured him that it would truly be our pleasure to give him a half gallon of apple cider. He then repeatedly told us that we truly made his holiday season. The story gets even better. After the gentleman made it out to his car with his apples and cider, the lady who was behind him in line asked if she could pay for his cider. The gentleman was long gone at this point. We made clear that that would not be necessary. She insisted to pay for it and after a few "back and fourth's" we let her pay as it truly was something she wanted to do. We are all feeling awfully warm and fuzzy out here! We are so blessed to be able to share the true meaning of Thanksgiving with our customers and hopefully spread our "warm and fuzzy" feeling to all of you! :) Wishing many, many blessings to everyone on this special holiday!
