The 15th annual Apple Tasting Tour in Wayne County kicks off on October 1. Families and apple lovers are invited to come spend time outdoors this fall, enjoying the crisp autumn air, taking in the colors of the season, picking their favorite apples and discovering all the different orchards and apple-related businesses that make up this vibrant agricultural region.
The "Apple Tasting Tour Challenge" runs all October. While visiting any of the 14 participating farms and farm markets, people can get their "tour cards" stamped to enter to win one of four Gift Baskets. Cards are available at all the tour locations, online or by calling Wayne County Tourism at 800-527-6510. During "Tasting Weekend" (October 5-8) visitors can learn about the many varieties of apples and figure out which ones are their favorites by "taste testing" the different types at the markets on the Tour.
