There is nothing better than a icy cold apple hand-picked off the tree in 35 degree weather! It makes my mouth water just thinking about it. We took the kids a week ago to pick apples from Mercier Apple Orchards in Blue Ridge, GA. I am not sure who was more excited about the experience me or the kids! I have never seen so many apple trees and apples in one place.
This orchard had over 100,000 apple trees, and every apple is hand-picked and hand-bagged. Every time I experience a farm, like this one, I am in awe at what it takes to grow the food we eat on a daily basis. Not to mention, it serves as a reminder that as much as we have progressed as a society, there are still some things that good ole nature takes care of for us…sun, rain, seasons.
