Food Field Trips » The ABCs of Apples
Take a scenic apple farm tour with Miranda of Russell Orchards and learn about all the amazing varieties of apples and which are best for pies and baking, which apples store well and which are just great for taking out of the fruit bowl and crunching.
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.
