In my last column, I talked about the joys of taking in the fall foliage in Adams County. We’re still anticipating those brilliant autumn hues as we transition into fall. This season is also when Adams County truly earns its moniker as “Apple Country USA.” Adams County is the fourth largest apple-producing county in America, with over 20,000 acres of apple orchards producing five million bushels of apples annually.
Opportunities are overflowing to enjoy apple-related activities right in our backyard. The National Apple Harvest Festival is taking place over the weekend in and celebrates everything apple with delicious foods, crafts, orchard tours, live entertainment and more.
