Seems some people arrived in the area after the Civil War and planted an orchard of apple trees. Those same trees have survived and are still producing apples.
I love apples, and I especially love this time of year with the weather changing and those crisp juicy apples just ready for the eating!
I have to admit we bought a flat of a variety of apples, and I can't wait to start making all kinds of yummy things! Here are some pics from the festival located right on Main Street... Lots of good food and some great music!
And, it wouldn't be apple season without some tarty apple cider...
