Autumn is apple time. A trip into the country to get apples directly from an orchard or roadside market makes for a great family outing.
Biting into the first locally grown apple of the season with its crunchiness, juiciness and aroma is an experience in which we all delight.
Apple orchards are located in most areas of the state with a concentration of orchards in Washington, Frederick and adjoining counties. Views from these orchards can be breathtaking and memorable. Many apple growers offer their product in an orchard area or adjacent roadside stand. Often you are able to purchase cider and other autumn produce.
Local consumption of Maryland apples increases profits for growers. Consumers also benefit from having a good supply of fresh, high quality apples available at reasonable prices.
We have much more information about all aspects of apples and apple growing in Maryland, and we'd love to share it with you.
Please buy apples from your local Maryland orchardist or look for fruit bearing the Maryland's Best Agriculture logo in your supermarket.
Regardless of the orchard visited, you will find great tasting apples that were grown with the best of care by a Maryland farmer.
