Anyone recommend a place for this in York or Cumberland counties? I think Ricker Hill offers some organic orchards but I thought there were more....

we went to raven hill orchards in E Waterboro on Saturday...and came home with 40lbs of cortlands. We'll be going back in a week or two.

Still really early in the season, but a great place. $1.50/lb, or $2.50 for heirloom varieties. I don't have the address in front of me, but I'm sure you could find it on the get real maine web site.

How do they keep the worms out of organic apples? I grew up on organic apples but that meant hunting for the ones with no worms because they weren't sprayed with anything. If they aren't sprayed with something they do get wormy for sure. I have plenty of semi wild unsprayed apples around here.

Hi,

Do you want any apples, Lisa? They are just down the road from me and they are great apples!! They make apple cider doughnuts, too...plus cider.

Hi Tree - Just picked up voice mail and checked the msg boards so may have gotten to this too late! If not, would love some organic apples (a 5# bag for class and one for myself?)

They open at 7, so I can go before class.

What variety(s) would you like?

Apples: McIntosh, Cortland, Empire, Macoun, Red Delicious, Yellow Delicious, Melrose, Northern Spy, Vartanian Lightening, Zabergau Reinette, Maiden Blush, Winter Blush, Boskoop, Hudson's Golden Gem, Honeygold, Granspur, Red St. Lawrence, Arkansas Black, King of Tompkins County, Baldwin, Black Oxford, Ginger Gold, Gravenstein, Alexander

Not sure if they have all of these types, but let me know your pleasure, please....Macouns are nice for contemporary apples.....
