Apple picking at Simmons Farm makes for a great experience, and also is the best way to get fresh fruit. Apples in our market are always picked fresh, but nothing beats picked fresh from the tree. 

Did you know that most apples in the grocery stores (not local farm markets) are up to 10 months old before you buy them? They also are usually gassed with a chemical prior to shipment to keep them fresh longer. This can all be avoided by picking your own!
