Apple Season

October 4, 2012

American as apple pie…..the aroma of apple pie baking supplies an olfactory memory that something good to eat is coming.  Apple butter fundraisers, apple bake-offs and apple cider is all part of the season in West Virginia.

Apples are available at farms throughout West Virginia including Orr’s Farm and Market, Russell Farms, Glascock’s Produce, Flying W Farms, Mountain View 2, Ammons Family Farm, Stonehaven Farm, Windy Ridge, Sycamore Creek Farm, and Old Otter Hollow Farm. Markets with apples include the Berkeley Springs Farmers Market, Lewisburg Farmers Market, Romney Farmers Market, the Wayne County Farmers Market, Gritt’s Midway Greenhouse and the Wild Ramp Market. Food establishments that serve apple products include Yiasou! Cupcake and Panorama on the Peak.

      There are….some of the ones listed in the wikipedia article are grown in this region. I know one of my favorites growing up in New Jersey can be found here and that makes me happy.

    Thanks for the info on the apple varieties!
    Speaking of WV Apples – Berkeley Springs Annual Apple Butter Festival is this weekend – come on over! Apples are in every course on Panorama’s menu this weekend.

    We have a lot of ancient Gravensteins in our area (along with a lot of other varieties). Nothing quite as wonderful as a fresh-picked, crisp juicy apple.

      once again, a huge difference in fresh apples and grocery store apples…. people who have never had a farm fresh apple don’t even know what they are missing!!
