Bite into a crisp, fresh apple and find your taste of autumn at the Penn State Apple Celebration on Thursday, Oct. 26 from 12p.m. – 5p.m. on the green space next to the Creamery on Penn State’s campus. The sale will feature multiple varieties of apples grown in Penn State Horticulture Farm orchards, and guests can taste samples and pick up recipe cards to go along with their apples!
The Student Farm is excited to partner with Penn State Horticulture Farm to bring fresh and local apples to the Penn State community as part of this fall celebration. The varieties of apples available for sale include McIntosh, Empire, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Day Break Fuji, Jonagold, Fuji, Nittany, and more! Pumpkins and Indian corn will also be available for purchase.
“The local foods movement is becoming more popular, and the apples featured at this event are grown right here on Penn State land. You can’t get much more fresh and local that!” said Alex Kummerer, a Student Farm Club member.
All proceeds from the sale will benefit the Student Farm Club and Penn State Horticulture Farm. Cash or credit card are accepted. Guests are encouraged to bring their own reusable bags.
Pre-sale of bulk quantities is also available. Contact Horticulture Farm manager Corey Dillon at firstname.lastname@example.org to pre-order one-bushel quantities or more.
