Orleans County - There are no orchards here but if you are in this area, the closest orchard is across the border in Quebec. It's called Heath, and is on Route 143 out of Stanstead.

An apple is a fruit whose seeds are embedded in the core of the fruit. When an apple is sliced in half, the apple core looks like a star. It takes about 36 apples to create one gallon of apple cider. Two pounds of apples make one 9-inch pie. Apple trees take four to five years to produce their first fruit.

An apple doesn't contain fat and consumption helps reduce risk of cancer. Apples don't sodium so they help reduce the risk of high blood pressure. They are an excellent source of fiber and help reduce cholesterol levels.

Vermont honey bees play an important role in apple production
