Jim Allen - New York Apple Association

If you are hoping to go apple picking this fall, you may want to call ahead to make sure your favorite orchard is open.

As reported by the Times Union, some capital region orchards will not be open to those looking for ‘pick-your-own’ this year due to heavily reduced crop yields following unseasonable weather over the last six months.

WAMC’s Patrick Donges spoke with Jim Allen, president and CEO of the New York Apple Association, a non-profit trade group representing over 600 commercial apple growers across the state, for an update on this year’s crop.
