As is common practice when farms are sold, the current crop would be available if the buyer pays operating costs required to produce said crop. 
Otherwise, the closing date should occur in November or December before any additional production costs for the next crop are incurred. 
(This should be communicated with the buyer up front.)                  

The Hyatt Hill vineyard surrounds the barn that houses Fall Bright.    See the table below for varieties, acreage and trellis. 
Varieties on this list are all on the Hyatt Hill farm.  In addition, we have 10.5 more acres of vineyard on our Dutch Street farm about 2 miles distant, that a new buyer could lease or contract  The Dutch Street Vineyard has Aurore, Vignoles, Foch, Chancellor, DeChaunac, Leon Millot, Chelois , all of which are bearing vines.   There are also 1.7 acres of young vineyard - Chambourcin, Gamay Noir, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris.  

Competition is not an issue, as we will NOT relocate the wine supply shop.

  • In 1982 we, Tom and Marcy Mitchell, along with Tom Jr., our daughters, Megan and Corlin, began re-planting our farm to 
    grape varieties that were or would be in demand by amateur winemakers. To date there are 10 acres of premium grape 
    varieties on Hyatt Hill including  7 Vinifera, 6 French Hybrids, and 4 American.  

  • Tom wants to retire from grape growing.  
    The Hyatt Hill farm is half of our grape acreage with the shop (Fall Bright) in the middle of it.  

  • Tom pays attention to details in the vineyard.  Do not let the for sale signs discourage you from doing business with us.  We are still selling winemaking supplies, our grapes and juices to the amateur and commercial wineries.  

    We balance prune our vines by hand, tie, sucker, top sucker, fruit thin where needed.  Pre bloom sprays are on timely.  
    Weed control is practiced.   
    Riesling are tucked several times, weaving the fast growing canes up support wires.  Other varieties requiring catch wires are 
    positioned.   This positioning and tucking continues during the summer.   

  • The shop is in full supply of wine making supplies for the amateur winemaker year round. 
     Our hours are limited this winter and summer to Friday and Saturday, but orders placed online will be shipped promptly.  
    We take PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. 

  • Our hours will expand during harvest to a 6 day week, closed Mondays.  
     

  • This vineyard site was first planted to grapes in 1865 and though the varieties that grow now are not of those original vines, 
    it has been continuously worked.  

    Established in 1977, Pa'tridge Run Farms is a family owned one generation vineyard, 
    dedicated to growing quality wine grapes and providing quality juices for the amateur winemaker. 
    The vineyard surrounds the barn that houses Fall Bright, which we opened in 1978.
