Apple Season Kick-off Celebration
Vermont Department of Tourism Kicks Off
Sixth Annual Apples to iPods Contest
at 19 Apple Orchards
What: Vermont’s apple harvest season will be picking up soon and all signs point to a ‘fruitful’ yield. The Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing and the Tree Fruit Growers Association invite you to a celebratory kick off and press conference. This season marks the sixth season of Apples to iPods and more orchards than ever are participating. Starting September 5 and running through the season, 19 orchards will offer visitors the chance to win an iPod by finding the wooden apple hidden in the trees. The state of Vermont partners with Small Dog Electronics and Woodchuck® Hard Cider to produce this good-natured promotion of Vermont’s working landscape. This also marks the second year of the Vermont Foodbank’s Pick for Your Neighbor initiative to combat hunger in Vermont.
