Organic Empire Apples for Sale $10 a bushel (125 apples)


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

Yeah... some of them are Almost perfect. A few surface blemishes since I don’t use pesticides..... I see that organic Empire Apples go for $1/lb.... that’s 4 medium apples at .25 cents each.... so a bushel (125 apples) .... good eating apples goes for $31
