It’s apple season! For the next few months, we’ll be happily stacking newly ripe varieties of apples just about weekly. Our local apples come from Dan Tower Farm in Youngstown – Dan has been a longtime partner of the Co-op, providing us with crisp, juicy apples for years. Read more about the farm and how to best use our local apple varieties below.
Dan Tower Farm
Youngstown, NY – just 34 miles away!
Who? Dan and Iris Tower, their family & crew. Meet them Saturday mornings at the Elmwood Bidwell Market.
The Farm: Dan Tower’s 200 acres have been in the family for five generations. He grows a wide variety of stone fruit (cherries, peaches, plums, apricots!), berries, and our favorite: apples!
How do they grow? The farm practices Integrated Pest Management (IPM), an environmentally sensitive approach to pest management.
Co-op Favorite: Honeycrisp! Crispin! Co-opers love the sweet burst of Honeycrisps and the crunchy, tart-sweet green Crispins.
