For many years I collected and composted the fallen apples from my 2 apple Trees.
Golden delicious and Empire Apple.
I do not spray my trees with any pesticides or chemicals and we get several thousand apples from each Tree.
About 3/4 of the Apples are perfect for pies, Apple sauce, snacks, and we used to collect the rest to give to horses at a nearby horse riding stable.
I learned this week that hunters will buy a bushel of apples (125 apples ) for about $10 per bushel.
So I’m going to see if I can sell some of my not-so-perfect apples.
Anyone else try this ?
You can buy Farmer’s Market Empire apples... $4 for 4 pounds here in Canada.
You get about 4 Medium sized apples per pound so $.25 cents per apple.
Maybe next year I will sell some of the better apples at $30/ bushel
