During a visit to the farm during the fall harvest season, Holland Society National President John B. VanDerbeek IV and his wife, Diane, saw Peter busily involved in the many duties associated with the harvest and assisting his staff with managing the many visitors who had come to enjoy the U-Pick Apples. The restaurant on site was full of diners, and the line for the seasonally produced Apple Cider Donuts seemed to stretch all the way around the building. Peter explained that the historic donut machine, which never stopped during our visit, was from a World War II ship.
