Iowa orchards reporting bumper apple crop
DES MOINES — Iowans are encouraged to consider visiting a local apple orchard this fall, as many growers are reporting their apples are maturing a little ahead of normal.
“While the cool, wet spring challenged many Iowa farmers, it has been near perfect weather for Iowa’s apple trees and the result is many orchards are reporting a bumper crop,” Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey said. “Taking your family to an apple orchard is a great way to enjoy the autumn weather while also providing your family with healthy, wholesome food and great memories.”
Visiting a local orchard is a great way to find new varieties that may not be available in a grocery store.
