By Sarah Boucher, Publisher Macaroni Kid Grand Haven, Spring Lake, and Muskegon September 9, 2020

Fall is in the air, which means it's time for apple picking, apple cider, warm donuts, and fall family fun! Did you know that there are more than 14.9 million apple trees covering 34,500 acres on 775 family-run farms in Michigan? Producing an average of 28 million bushels per year, Michigan is the third biggest apple producing state in the entire United States! How big is a bushel? A bushel of apples typically holds about 125 medium apples. That's a lot of apples!
