Yes! It is August…the days are getting shorter, the angle of the sun a little lower, AND the local orchards have opened with early variety APPLES! We purchased some beautiful pre-picked Galas and Supreme Golds at Bryson’s Orchard in Long Creek, SC this week (U-pick opportunities to start in a couple weeks .) Even our aged apple tree here at Sunrise Farm has produced a bumper crop; and, we made the first batch of homemade applesauce today! Be sure to plan to attend the 55th Annual South Carolina Apple Festival, September 6-10, 2016.
