You can find apples by the bushel at the Country Apple Orchard. This year, the apple crop is popping up by the thousands and the trees are doing much better than in the past.
"As you can see, the apples look beautiful. The trees have been under stress for two years, so it does take its toll, but I think we have a really good crop," Cindi Tuttle with Country Apple Orchard said.
This year, the orchard says they saw cool, wet weather conditions in the beginning of the growing season. Even though, the apple growers say, it was not ideal conditions, it is far better than what the orchard has seen over the last two years.
"They're producing very nice apples under the conditions, the season was a little behind because of the weather changes and the stress on the trees," Tuttle said.
With the cooler weather, Country Apple Orchard says the crops are about two weeks behind, but they are quickly catching up now. The apple varieties are almost ready for the big apple festival this weekend.
"Some of the varieties we're not seeing quite as many apples and a few of the apples are a little smaller than normal, but overall we couldn't ask for a nicer crop due to the conditions," Tuttle said.
The Country Apple Orchard has about 88-acres of apple trees which produce 14 different varieties.
