St. Lawrence County apple grower not affected by Spring frost

The spring of 2023 saw some late frost, but why is this relevant now? It’s because it took a bite out of this year’s apple crop in much of New York state. However, in St. Lawrence County, apples are ripe and plentiful for picking. At Applewood Orchards in Rensselaer Falls, co-owners Andrew and Alicia Brice are ready for people to come to the farm to pick apples.

Brice said: “We do have a very good crop across all of our different apple varieties and we started our you-pick two weeks ago so we are very fortunate that we are able to open up to you-pick this year as well as selling inside of our store.”

According to the Brices, the lay of the land helped protect their crop and they’ll yield 20,000 apples a day.
