Motherload of apples

So, a couple of weeks ago I went to see the good folks at Poverty Lane Orchard in Lebanon, NH (link at right) and brought home our biggest haul yet – about 420 lbs of apples. The selection included:

  • Harry Master’s Jersey
  • Yarlington Mill
  • Foxwhelp
  • Michelin
  • Ashmead’s Kernel
  • Esopus Spitzenberg
  • Redfield
  • Wickson

I also bought several sacks of their utility fruit, an excellent deal at $10 per half-bushel. They were kind enough to throw in an extra bag free, and the woman in charge asked me if I was associated with this blog – she apparently ran into the site while looking for references to their orchard online. It is fortunate beyond any reasonable expectation to have what’s probably the best selection of cider fruit in the country less than five miles from my house, and by Holly’s account not all orchard operations are as friendly.
