Tidbit: Great year for apples

Here’s a tidbit from the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group‘s (NESAWG) monthly news digest.

The weather this year has been ideal for apples with the crop estimated to be 30 million apples in New York State alone. The New York Apple Association and apple farmers have collaborated to produce a website, nyapplecountry.com, with everything you need to know about apple varieties, harvest dates, recipes, nutrition, education, and pick-your-own operations.

Here’s where to buy and pick LOCAL apples in Bucks County.
