Johnny Appleseed Day is celebrated today, September 26th! John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed, was a Massachusetts-born philosopher and philanthropist, who, beginning in 1802, wandered through northern and Midwestern states planting apple nurseries. His trees fed many settlers, and he was loved wherever he went.
Fall brings forth a time for harvest, and apple picking is a fun fall activity that family and friends can do together. Head right outside of town to Highland Orchards! They offer apple picking all fall. Not much for the outdoors? The West Chester Growers Market also offers farm fresh apples and other fruits.
