Fall is one of our favorite seasons in Wisconsin. We love the changing leaves, the crispness in the air, and, most importantly, the local apples.
Apples have been grown commercially in Wisconsin since the mid-19th century. Most of these early orchards grew several types of apples, including some of local origin like the Wolf River apple from Fremont, Wisconsin. Our short growing season, though, meant only the hardiest of apple varieties could thrive.
Thanks for reading and get in touch.
We love to hear about your Wisconsin life.
