Food Field Trips » Apple Picking Tips
Apple picking is a fun outing that's great for the whole family. A few tips from Miranda of Russell Orchards will give you a heads-up guide that will help you respect the orchard, taste test the merchandise, and share in the beauty and wonders of nature.
At age 19 Miranda began working at Russell Orchards in Ipswich, MA, making bouquets from the flower garden in the morning, ringing up sales during the day, and baking pies at night. Eventually she and her husband took over the company. The pride Miranda takes in providing healthy food to her customers is evident in the joy she draws from the honest hard work of life on a farm.
