Afton Apple Orchard: The tour

1 of 32

 

 

For local apple-growers, the harsh winter of 2011 was rotten to the core. Fortunately, last year's bad apples did not spoil this year's bunch. This past winter was relatively normal, if a little long, which helped to knock out insects and limit the damage they cause. The late start to spring made for heavy-laden branches, so this fall will hold plenty of pick-your-own apples, baked apple treats, apple cider, and fun at local orchards -- including Afton's annual Apple Fest.
