Apples Harvest Ready

Today’s Press Herald includes an article about the 2012 apple harvest.

Here in Maine, some growers are reporting yields coming in just a little bit early. But there’s no question that by this weekend, the apples will be ready to go — whether you pick them yourself or buy from a local farm stand.

At Rollins Orchards, a Garland farm that’s been in the family since 1821, owner Jean Rollins has been stocking her market for a while with help from her son, Ernest, and his wife, Andrea.

“We’ve been picking for three weeks,” Jean Rollins said. “That’s early. It’s a pretty good crop this year; overall, it’s about average.”

  1. We went to pick in Cumberland this weekend. Weather was great, the place was packed, and the apples are bountiful and delicious.
