I live in MA.   a little W of BOS

 

there are still a number of family owned apple orchards around

 

the ones that will last longer are off the main arteries feeding BOS.

 

there is a very nice one one town over.   but the better ones are N.W.

 

there are no arteries going that way.  one in Stowe , had a blackboard w harvest times

 

for the various varieties .   they do come in a different times.

 

they sold the apples in paper sacks w handles , same as local stores

 

but much cheaper.   they had a ' seconds room '  apples misshaped , as few blemishes

 

very very reasonable.  my favorite was ' Winter Banana ' , probably by name only.

 

I made a lot of Apple crisp back in those days , and apples to munch on.

 

they had pies , some they made , and some made locally from their apples

 

fairly priced w nice crusts

 

but aside from the seconds room :  they made their own apple cider

 

non-pasteurized .  you kept it in a cool place for a week or so or more

 

and released the ' gas' from time to time , until the fermenting stopped.

 

then refrigerated it.   it came out fairly dry , and mighty tasty 

 

batches flavors varied w the apples used at the time.

 

it was about 2.50 $$  or so a gallon.  something you could not buy another way.

 

I hope they are still at it next fall.
