Apple Central: Anderson Orchard

by Shyla Harless
 Anderson Apple Orchard is visited by hundreds of people from early July until late October. The orchard has over 150 acres of apples, pumpkins, peaches, pears, plums, red raspberries and various nuts.
    The orchard has a retail store that sells many other tasty treats.  The hours are from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. seven days a week.
   The orchard has been open since 1969. The present owners are Paul and Carolyn Anderson, and their children are actively involved with the orchard as well.
   “I have been going since I was a baby, and I think it’s a great family place to go.” Junior Mackensie Letourneau said.
    The orchard has 28 different types of apples with many trees for each kind.
   “The Granny Smith apples are my favorite,” English teacher Mrs. Kelly Patel said. “The hay playground is great for my kids; however, we do not care for the bees.”
     On September 29 and 30, Anderson Apple Orchard will be hosting a craft fair and it’s annual Apple Festival. The craft tents will be open from 9 a.m. until 5p.m, rain or shine. The orchard will have normal hours 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. It’s a great family idea so come and join the festivities. For more information, call Anderson Apple Orchard at (317) 831-4181.
