Pure Michigan Apple Month

Governor Rick Snyder has declared this October Pure Michigan Apple Month.
Snyder says the state’s apple growers work hard all year to provide us with the best-tasting apples around and he encourages all Michiganders to visit a local farm market, cider mill or orchard for a Pure Michigan Apple experience.
Michigan is the nation’s third largest producer of apples with more than 9.2 million apple trees in commercial production, covering 36,500 acres.
Diane Smith, executive director of the Michigan Apple Committee, says Michigan boasts 850 apple growing families who will harvest more than 28 million bushels of apples this year. She says apples are a long-held tradition in our state, and are vital to Michigan’s agriculture industry and economy.
