Throughout the Season
"Pick For Your Neighbor"
Vermont Foodbank & the Agency of Agriculture encourage customers to pick apples, pay for them, & leave them here. Then, the Foodbank picks them up and distributes them so that our neighbors get fresh, local food. Thanks so much for joining us in this important program to help out our neighbors!
"Apples to iPods"
As of Labor Day, Nick has hidden a wooden apple somewhere in the orchard. Don’t bother asking…he’ll NEVER tell you where it is! But, if you find it, you just might win an iPod. For more info, program sponsors, a list of participating orchards, AND a video featuring Nick, please go to http://applestoipods.com. Happy Hunting!
Burlington and Shelburne Farmers Markets
On Saturdays, please stop by the Burlington or Shelburne markets to purchase apple cider, cider doughnuts…and more.
