September is here. Kids are back in school, the days are cooler, and Vermont’s apple orchards are brimming with fresh, juicy apples, just waiting to be picked. Now is the time to make plans to visit your local orchard with friends and family!
According to the Vermont Tree Fruit Growers, our state produces around 1,000,000 bushels of apples annually – that’s about 40 million pounds! Over 50% of those apples are McIntosh, but there are more than 150 varieties grown here in our state.
