The Benefits of Purchasing Fruit from Orchards
Orchards provide an excellent source of farm grown produce, whether you are in the market for apples, pears or plums. These farms have the freshest, ripest fruit at the best possible prices. Whether you pick your own apples from the tree or purchase a basket of fruit or fresh cider from the farmer's market, this produce is often better than the selection at a grocery store. Check out these tips to make the most of your own farm picking excursion and a few of the benefits orchard grown fruit offers. Most states offer at least a few orchards or tree farms with home grown apples and pears. The available supply will depend on the season, since produce is usually local. Most produce is grown from seed and raised by a single harvester so you know precisely what has been used on the crops before they come to market. It is important to know the seasons of the specific apple or cherry in your area, so you know which crops have just been seeded and which are already ripe for harvest. Even apple and cherry orchards offer a variety of ripe fruit in various seasons, with many different types of fruit in their markets and bakery throughout the year. When the orchard reaps an abundant supply, the price of the fruit will go down. Some customers might even find discount sales on fruit that has reaped a plentiful harvest during the season. The variety of apples and other fruit ensures that apple pickers can fill a basket of the ripe fruit at almost any time of the year. However, other fruit, like the peach and plum, might have a shorter growing season and you need to know that time frame to get the ripest fruit at the lowest cost.

Visiting a fruit orchard is a fun and different way of finding the freshest fruit available within your area. If you bypass the grocery store in favor of a trip to an orchard, you will discover the reward of fresh fruit and quality homemade products. To find the orchard located nearest to your home, conduct a search online and read visitor reviews when making your decision. Choose the orchard that best suits your needs and cultivates the fruit you want to harvest. Directly contacting the orchard is also quite helpful when deciding which location you should visit. Most orchards specialize in growing specific types of fruit including apples, cherries, and peaches. Some orchards offer only fruit for harvesting, though others sell other delicious tasting food and useful homemade products. Many orchards include an on-site general store or market. These shops will carry food products made from the fruit that is grown on their property. Jams, cider, seeds, syrups, and baked goods are prepared fresh and ready to carry home after a visit to an orchard. Visiting a fruit orchard is a great way to discover the origin of the fruit you eat and perhaps discover new uses for these products. This is also an excellent way for families and friends to spend quality time together while sharing the common goal of harvesting the freshest and most delicious fruit. Journeys to fruit orchards serve as excellent field trips for schools or camps, as children will learn how fruit is grown, cultivated, and harvested.
