Picking apples at The Country Mill in Charlotte, MI
September 10, 2009
In a few minutes, super-wife will be ready for my help in the kitchen to can applesauce from the apples we picked today at The Country Mill in Charlotte, MI, about 20 miles southwest of Lansing.
There were only two or three cars in the parking lot of this huge orchard where we picked a half bushel of cortlands and a half bushel of macintoshes. We purchased two plastic bags which we could fill with as many apples as we could carry.
The farm seems geared for families and for just about anybody who wants a diversion from urban living and a chance to handpick some good nutrition.
Michigan is a big apple-growing state. The Michigan Apple Committee provides more info.
Here's a quick look from two of my Flip videos:
