Where to get Apples


2008 Oct 7
Went to Mountain Orchards on Sunday, great fun day picking apples. We picked 10 lbs of mixed apples, Empire, McIntosh & Honey Gold for $8. One of the employees explained how the apples look a little pitted or bruised from a hail storm they had but it doesn't compromise taste. The apples are very good and juicy.
Had fun on the wagon ride, the corn maze but the best part are the freshly made warm cider doughnuts.
