A Sustainable Orchard Partnering with Cornell University
It’s time to get a delicious taste of New York, courtesy of a grower-owned company dedicated to introducing flavorful apple varieties to consumers.
Crunch Time Apple Growers is a collective of 145 family farms that cover New York State growing the best apples and fruit in the country. Their farmers are dedicated to continuing the legacy of family farming, sustaining the environment and feeding families with the freshest, most responsibly grown apples. We spoke with various members, including fifth-generation farmer Joel Crist, Hudson River Fruit owner Alisha Albinder, New York Apple Sales’ Matt Wells, Kast Fruit Farm owner Brett Kast, and Hurd Orchards owner Amy Machamer.
SnapDragon and RubyFrost apples—the two newest varieties—were created by Dr. Susan Brown of Cornell University to provide an apple that was easier to grow for farmers, thus delivering a better return on their crop, in addition to an amazingly consistent eating experience. When you buy local, you are also contributing to keeping farm land intact for farming. Some of their farms go back five and six generations.
So take a bite, taste the crunch and enjoy these delicious apples.
