2015 was an incredible year for apples. Anyone who has an apple tree commented on how many apples they had. Even the wild apple trees were loaded to the point that birds and other wild animals couldn't eat them all. Yes, it was a very successful year for us and many other orchardists. After last year, we needed a year like this.
Because we had so many apples we (and this includes our customers) could not pick them all. A lot ended up on the ground and there are still some still on the trees but they are pretty brown and frozen solid right now. We also had a lot left in the cooler. So what did we do with them all?
