Buy Local : Tuttle Farms
My family has been to Tuttle Orchards a few times now. I'll have to admit, I'm gonna be biased in this blog based on location alone. You'll read about places close to my home before I venture all the way around the city dragging two impatient kids that apparently belong to me. But I'll get to those places in due time wherever they are.
Tuttle Orchards is located in Greenfield which is East-Northeast of the circle. It is Mapquested here.
Many apples are in season right now and ready to be picked (by You!). And some others will be ripe in the next couple of weeks. And yet other will ripen in mid October. They grow 22 varieties of apples available at various times. Ah heck, here is the harvest schedule for 2009. What's your flavor??
Just remember it's not only apples. Pumpkins show up in October as well. There are also a variety of other vegetables in the stands throughout the year. And even a play area, an agrimaze , and of course hay rides. Not to mention the bees. Go check it out. Go buy a bushel of apples grown right here in Indiana. They say it tastes better .
